Jordan Graham's stoppage-time equaliser saved Gillingham from suffering their second League One defeat of the new campaign away at Shrewsbury Town on Saturday. Having squeezed past Crawley Town in their opening EFL Trophy clash last month, they'll look to continue their winning ways in that competition at Portman Road.

Ipswich were somehow bested by Arsenal under-21s on MD1, but are unbeaten in their last three and will expect a determined response this coming week. Who will emerge victorious? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Ipswich Town vs Gillingham Betting Tips

I use the phrase somehow because Ipswich were dominant against the young Gunners in September, yet left empty-handed. They sit bottom of the Southern Group B, but head coach Paul Lambert doesn't need telling just how quickly things can change over a matchday.

That's why this home clash with Gillingham is even more important. They had 17 shots, missed six big chances and hit the woodwork on three separate occasions against Steve Bould's side. It goes without saying that they can't afford the same struggles in-front of goal on this occasion, though a little fortune wouldn't go amiss either.

They'll probably rely on former England under-20 international Andre Dozzell for the bulk of their creativity against a stubborn Gillingham backline. He's been quietly consistent to start the new campaign and could prove key to beat the visitors, who have just one clean sheet in seven games (all competitions).

Speaking of Arsenal, Tuesday's visitors are likely to start two loanees from the Premier League club – Zech Medley and Trae Coyle. The latter scored in their 2-1 win over Crawley, while Medley limped off with a knock that evening but has started three successive games.

It'll be interesting to see how they fare, particularly 19-year-old winger Coyle, against a backline many believe wouldn't look out-of-place in the Championship.

Ipswich Town vs Gillingham Correct Score Predictions

In seven encounters at various jobs in England's top four divisions, Lambert holds a psychological edge (four wins, two draws, one loss) over Scottish compatriot Steve Evans. Ipswich are better on paper and that record should continue here.
