The outcome of this weekend’s match between Leeds United and Ipswich Town, which is vital for both teams in the fight for promotion from the Championship, was predicted by Ian Holloway.
Leeds enters the match at lunchtime on Saturday following a difficult run of two disappointing outcomes. Dan James wasted a fantastic opportunity last Tuesday when the team lost to Sunderland and then drew at home against Coventry.
Leicester now leads third-place Leeds by 13 points at the top of the table as a result of those two victories. The previous time the two teams faced each other, Ipswich could only muster a 2-2 tie.
Gaining three points against Ipswich is presumably crucial if Leeds are to have any chance of earning automatic promotion this year. Not only did they win, but they also let Kieran McKenna’s team lose.
Manager Holland was asked to forecast the outcome of the promotion match in an interview with Football League World. He believes that although both teams will be competitive, the game will conclude in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.
Ian Holloway forecasts the Leeds United at Ipswich Town match.
“It looks like a fantastic game. At this point, both sides have far too much to lose, thus I see a draw. I believe every player will step up to the plate. Leeds 1-1 Ipswich is my pick,” he declared.
The players are also aware that this match is vital.Before the game, Georginio Rutter shared a message for his fans on Instagram. According to Sky Sports expert Job McAnuff, Leeds are facing increased pressure.
Leeds will benefit greatly heading into the hectic Christmas season if they can win. There will be a strong sense of confidence and the conviction that we can catch Ipswich by seven points. If you lose, the reverse will be encouraged.
