Sports Mole previews Tuesday's League One clash between Ipswich Town and Rotherham United, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

Rotherham United have the chance to go top of League One with a victory on Tuesday if other results go their way, which places plenty of pressure on this particular fixture.

Ipswich Town shall be hosting the Millers and they will be aiming to bounce back from their defeat at the weekend.

Match preview

Ipswich Town suffered a 2-0 loss at the weekend when they travelled to face Sunderland, with two goals in the final 10 minutes of the game from Luke O'Nien and Aiden McGeady.

This brought an end to their five-match unbeaten streak which had helped them climb to 10th in the table as they begin to push towards the playoff positions.

The Tractor Boys are just seven points away from that spot and a victory in midweek will certainly help them climb up, which is what the squad shall be hoping to do.

Ipswich have only been able to score more than one goal in two of their previous six matches, which is a concern, especially since no club have conceded fewer goals than their opponents.

However, they will have to take confidence from their performances at the start of this month in a bid to get back to winning ways immediately.

Rotherham United have been one of the most dominant teams in the league this season and that is clear from the fact they have not lost in 17 games across all competitions.

It was in August when the club last suffered a defeat and that is something that built a high amount of confidence within the group of players.

Right now Paul Warne's squad sit just two points behind Plymouth Argyle in second place, with a victory having the chance to place them in the top spot.

The Millers were at their best this weekend when they defeated Cambridge United 3-1, with goals from Ben Wiles, Dan Barlaser and Freddie Ladapo helping secure the result.

This marked the second game in a row when the squad have managed to score three times and that is something they shall be attempting to continue.

Team News

Ipswich Town made six changes during their most recent performance against Sunderland, but that proved to be slightly too much due to them suffering a defeat.

It is unclear whether or not the squad will be kept the same or if there shall be returns, but the likes of Scott Fraser and Joe Pigott could be brought back to provide more attacking options.

Chiedozie Ogbene and Shane Ferguson were welcomed back to the Rotheram starting XI after their spells away from the club due to international duty, which was a welcome boost.

Michael Smith missed out on the weekend due to suspension, but he will be available for selection on Tuesday night, providing further options for the Millers.

Ipswich Town possible starting lineup:
Walton; Clements, Edmundson, Nsiala, Donacien; Evans, Morsy, Aluko, Celina, Fraser; Pigott

Rotherham United possible starting lineup:
Vickers; Edmonds-Green, Wood, Harding; Ogbene, Barlaser, Ferguson, Wiles, Sadlier; Ladapo, Grigg

We say: Ipswich Town 0-2 Rotherham United

Rotherham United have been one of the most impressive outfits in League One so far this season and it is hard to look past them in any game because of that.

With Ipswich Town struggling for goals and the Millers being so defensively strong, it would not be a surprise to see them secure a clean sheet in the process of getting three points.
