The72’s writers offer their Ipswich Town vs Wolves prediction ahead of the Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday night.

They played out a 1-1 draw with Luton Town at the weekend and as a result, they remain down in 16th.
Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…
“With the momentum behind them that Ipswich have, I can really see them winning this one.
“Wolves are leaky at the back and can be fairly toothless in attack. Even though they’ll be against a Championship side, I can see those problems persisting, especially against a team that holds such form coming into the game.
“Time will tell just what the teams look like as many look to rotate while fixtures ramp up. I’m backing Ipswich to pick up a great win here though. I’ll say 2-1 to the hosts, making for another statement win for McKenna and co.”
Ipswich Town vs Wolves prediction: 2-1
“With the way this season is going , I wouldn’t be surprised if Ipswich Town eventually replace Wolves as a Premier League side for next season.
“Town are looking so good and so confident right now. They have a real team togetherness which Wolves don’t really appear to have right now.
“They’ve chopped and changed managers and players over the last few years whereas Ipswich have been building steadily, and are reaping the rewards.
“I think this will be a fairly routine win for the Tractor Boys.”
