Leeds vs Ipswich

Next up, Leeds will be looking to end their stuttering form in the Championship when they take on Ipswich Town at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa’s team have just two wins in their last nine outings and were beaten 2-1 away to Blackburn Rovers in a frustrating outing at the weekend. However, Ipswich would happily swap places with them, currently finding themselves sat bottom of the table and lost 2-0 at home to Queens Park Rangers last time out. Leeds are odds-on to win here at 4/9 with Bet365, while an Ipswich win can be backed at 15/2 with BetVictor.

Meanwhile, Brentford’s 10 men were beaten 1-0 by Bristol City on Saturday afternoon, making it six games without a win from the Bees, during which they have managed just four points from a possible 18.
