Last Time Out In The Championship

A frustrating 0-0 draw at the DW Stadium saw Swansea miss a few good chances to take the 3 points. Billy McKay, Martin Olsson and Oli McBurnie all had chances throughout the game, but Christian Walton managed to keep them at bay in the Wigan net. Kristoffer Nordfeldt kept Swansea in the game late on with a save from Will Grigg, after Matt Grimes’ poor back pass released the striker. The goalkeeper was a surprise inclusion after Erwin Mulder’s recent clean sheets, but his performance will give Graham Potter something to think about ahead of the weekend.

Swansea and Ipswich to draw 0-0 - 27/4*

Last Time Out In The Championship

2 early first half goals from Middlesbrough were enough to end Ipswich’s hopes of grabbing their first win of the season. Mo Besic’s long range shot was blocked, but the Bosnian continued his run onto the ball and finished in the area. A wayward pass from Luke Chambers found Stewart Downing, who ran into the box before firing in Middlesbrough’s second after just 16 minutes. Ipswich improved in the second half, but could only trouble Darren Randolph with long range shots.

Ipswich to score under 0.5 goals - 11/10*

Swansea City v Ipswich Town Head to Head

Swansea and Ipswich met eachother 7 times in a 4 year period between 2007 and 2011, but haven’t played each other since. Ipswich won the first encounter 1-0 in January 2007, but failed to win in any of the next 6 matches. In Swansea City’s last season in the Championship, the Swans completed the double over Ipswich. The last game was at the Liberty Stadium, finishing 4-1 in Swansea’s favour. Fabio Borini scored twice in the first half before a late Scott Sinclair penalty wrapped up the 3 points. Ipswich haven’t started well this season and Swans fans will be hoping for a repeat of the 2011 fixture.

Swansea to win and under 2.5 goals - 47/20*

Ipswich are winless and have struggled on the road, only picking up 1 point this season. Swansea should dominate, but after only scoring 3 goals in their last 5 matches, we don’t expect too many goals.
