Shrewsbury Town will be wanting a better result here following the 2-3 League One defeat in their last game at the hands of Oxford United.
For Shrewsbury Town, goals were scored by Matthew Pennington (16') and Josh Vela (25'). Elliot Lee (3'), James Henry (68') and Daniel Agyei (85') scored for Oxford United.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Shrewsbury Town have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Shrews have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 12 goals on the way. That sort of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, of course.
Ipswich Town go into this match after a 1-2 League One win vs Swindon Town in their most recent match.
The only name on the scoresheet from Ipswich Town was James Norwood (44', 58'). Brett Pitman (71') was the scorer for Swindon Town.
The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Ipswich Town has become evident recently. Checking on their last six games shows that it’s occurred 5 times. During these clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal aggregate of 7 and The Tractor Boys have scored 2.
Head to head
The previous league contest between the two was League One match day 13 on 21/11/2020 when it ended Ipswich Town 2-1 Shrewsbury Town.

Team News: Shrewsbury Town
Shrewsbury Town boss Steve Cotterill doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash with a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Ipswich Town
Ipswich manager Paul Cook has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Gwion Edwards (Thigh Problems), Flynn Downes (Knee Injury) and Stephen Ward (Achilles tendon problems) are not able to play. Josh Harrop will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that Ipswich Town could find themselves struggling to put one past this Shrewsbury Town side who we reckon should get the vital goal that wins it.
That’s why we have predicted a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning score for Shrewsbury Town at full-time.
Should be interesting.
