Ipswich look to keep up momentum in promotion surge

Tonight Ipswich travel to lowly Brighton looking to take another huge step towards promotion in a game that could see them top the Championship table following the full time whistle.

Brighton had seen an upturn in form before Saturday’s 1-0 loss at home to Brentford. But the Seagulls will be looking to quickly forget that game and push themselves further away from the dreaded relegation zone.

Ipswich have only lost twice on their travels this season and will be full of confidence, whereas Brighton have won just three times at the Amex this season – losing five times.

The betting tips for the game will see many punters backing Ipswich with their form away from home a key factor. But Brighton’s form in the past five games leaves the chance of an upset wide open.

There is another league match taking place in the Championship tonight. Fulham play host to Nottingham Forest who will go into this tie on the back of a memorable 2-1 away victory over rivals Derby on Saturday lunchtime. The Rams found themselves 1-0 up going into the final quarter of the game but a late fightback, including a last minute winner, saw Forest upset the form books and take home the three points.

Fulham’s recent form shows two wins and three losses from their last five games so the inconsistency of both teams makes this a hard one to call.

Going on Saturday’s performance and the way they won the game I can see the momentum coming into this game sitting with Forest and the three points in my opinion will come back up north.

Fulham:

Form in the Championship: WWLLLW
Form in all competitions: LLDLWW

Forest:

Form in the Championship: DDLLLW
Form in all competitions: DLLLLW
