In-form Ipswich out to get Premier League Wolves scalp

  • reporter 

High flying Ipswich Town welcome Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers to Portman Road  in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

The Tractor Boys beat Bristol Rovers 2-0 in the first round and beat struggling Reading on penalties last month. Ipswich in the league have only lost one game and find themselves 2nd in the league.

Wolves on the other hand, hit five past League 1 Blackpool in the second round of the Carabao Cup. Wolves now under former Bournemouth manager Gary O’Neil find themselves in 16th in the Premier League, were lucky to get a draw away at Luton Town on Saturday, and has been a very underwhelming start, with only one win in the league so far, away to Everton.

Ipswich should head into Wolves with only goalkeeper Christian Walton set to miss out with a foot injury, picking up no injuries in their 4-3 win over Blackburn Rovers. With midfielder Jean-Ricner Bellegarde getting sent off against Luton on Saturday, Wolves will be forced into at least one change, however a few more changes are expected, with players like Neto and Matheus Cunha set to be rested.

Head to Head

  • Last met in 2017-18, where Wolves won both home and away 1-0.
  • Ipswich are winless in seven meetings against Wolves and have not scored in any of them games.
  • Only four of their last 21 meetings have produced over 2.5 goals
