EFL Championship | Ipswich VS Watford; Thursday, 11 April at 02:45 GMT +8

Ipswich returns to home soil after a 1:0 loss at Norwich City, but remain on course for promotion with just five games left in the season. The Tractor Boys have been in brilliant form at Portman Road, with victories in each of their last five matches in front of their own support. With an impressive 18-game unbeaten run on their own turf, Ipswich can move closer to achieving their dream of a return to the Premiership this summer. Meanwhile, Watford make the trip north in less than convincing form, winning only one of their last eight Championship fixtures. Under Tom Clelverley, the Hornets are 14th in the Championship and nine points above the drop zone. Ipswich is expected to score goals, with BTTS in 13 of their last 15 league games on their own patch.

Ipswich boss McKenna is unlikely to make significant changes to his squad despite Sunday’s defeat at Norwich. Harry Clarke and Jeremy Sarmiento could join the starting XI, while Brandon Williams, Wes Burns, and George Hirst remain absent.

Watford travel to Suffolk without new injury issues following a goalless draw against Preston, but Kenneth Sema and Kwadwo Baah are likely to miss the game.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Vaclav Hladky
Defenders: Leif Davis, George Edmundson, Luke Woolfenden, Axel Tuanzebe
Midfielders: Sam Morsy, Conor Chaplin, Omari Hutchinson, Massimo Luongo, Nathan Broadhead
Forwards: Kieffer Moore


Goalkeeper: Daniel Bachmann
Defenders: Francisco Sierralta, Wesley Hoedt, Ryan Porteous
Midfielders: Jamal Lewis, Tom Dele-Bashiru, Edo Kayembe, Ryan Andrews
Forwards: Yaser Asprilla, Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Emmanuel Dennis
