Ipswich Town are looking to put one foot in the Championship as they face Exeter City in League One this weekend.
Ipswich Town currently sit 2nd in League One with twenty-seven wins, thirteen draws and four losses from forty-four games this season.
The Tractor Boys have been a revelation in League One this campaign and have had an outstanding season as they find themselves needing a maximum of two points from their remaining two games to secure automatic promotion to the Championship given their excellent goal difference figure.
They enter this game in fine form having won their four consecutive matches while going unbeaten in their last fifteen in all competitions.
Their most recent game saw them beat Barnsley 3-0 away from home, a win that confirmed a second successive 3-0 victory away from home against a promotion contender.
Ipswich's form at home is impervious with The Tractor Boys now unbeaten at home since November having also won their last seven in a row on home soil, scoring twenty-five times in that period while conceding just once.
Ipswich are almost certainly going to be playing football in the Championship next season and a win here will mathematically confirm that. It's highly unlikely that any other outcome will occur.
Exeter City currently sit 14th in League One with fourteen wins, eleven draws and nineteen losses from forty-four games this season.
Exeter have ultimately had a very successful season after promotion from League Two last time out as they sail towards a mid-table finish. However, they currently seem committed to ending the season on a sour note as they finish the campaign in a terrible vein of form.
Exeter enter this game having lost their last five consecutive matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat away at Sheffield Wednesday.
In fairness to Exeter, they've had a murderers row of opponents in this stretch of football as once this game against Ipswich is complete it will mean they've faced six of the current top seven in their last six games.
Still, emerging from that run of fixtures with zero points is fairly deflating and they would have expected themselves to notch a couple of draws at least.
Their form away from home is no good either, with Exeter failing to win any of there last seven games on the road.
This game is Ipswich's promotion party and while Exeter are coming with intentions to spoil it it's highly unlikely they're going to have any success in doing so.
For our Ipswich vs. Exeter prediction, we're going for a 3-0 win for the home side.
