Ipswich V Bristol City should yield goals

September 26th, 2015 | Ian Carnaby's Sports News

I have not yet found any rhythm on the football but it will come. We had a few clean sweeps last season and it’s just a question of being patient.

Bristol City are worrying their supporters with a poor start in the Championship after running away with League One. They are much better than their lowly position suggests and it’s really a question of maintaining their confidence. On the face of it a visit to Ipswich represents a tricky task but the Tractor Boys often flatter to deceive and this is the season they will have to make the play-offs at the very least or there will be changes. They occupy one of the positions at present and will no doubt be thereabouts for most of a long campaign but City can push them all the way on Saturday in a game which may be quite open and free-scoring. Some of the Premier League prices are too short but I think the 21/20 about Southampton at home to Swansea is reasonably attractive. I do not subscribe to the view that the Saints were unlucky against Manchester United because the visitors looked in control for much of the second half, though there is no doubt David De Gea made the difference between a win and a draw in the closing stages. Southampton played a very attacking line-up and put six past MK Dons despite resting Graziano Pelle.

They possibly meet Swansea at the right time because the Swans have dipped after a good start and the defeat at Hull came as a surprise. Also, they are not scoring many goals. This looks a home win.

Our long shots in League One, Walsall, need to kick on again after performing creditably against Chelsea. Sometimes a banana skin follows a brave but unavailing effort, though they should be too good for Crewe. I still think Sheffield United will win this section, though they are struggling for any consistency. Local derbies seldom appeal as anything other than draws but they really ought to beat lowly Doncaster and the 10/11 with Betfred should be snapped up.

Ipswich v Bristol City 20 units at 10/11 Both Teams To Score
