Punters are backing Ipswich Town to get their season back on track with a win against Leeds United at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).

The Blues host sixth-placed Leeds looking for their first win in six games in all competitions, having been dumped out of the FA Cup at the Third Round stage yet again last weekend.

Town haven’t won a game since they saw off Reading 2-0 on December 16, and they’ve dropped to 12th in the Championship table, seven points off the play-offs.
