Will Keane be Driven Out by the Tractor Boys?

Will Home Park prove a happy hunting ground for Keane and Ipswich?Ipswich Town, lead by manager Roy Keane, will go in search of their first win of The Championship season at the fourteenth time of asking when they travel to Plymouth on Saturday.

The Tractor Boys make the trip to the West Country sitting bottom of the league, but opponents Plymouth sit just one point above Keane's men in the table and a first win of the season would see them leap frog The Pilgrims, a result that would add pressure to Paul Sturrock as the next championship manager to be sacked following Gareth Southgate's dismissal from Middlesbrough midweek.

If Ipswich failed to win at Home Park, the pendulum would swing in the direction of Keane, who despite being given the vote of confidence by the Ipswich board would surely be facing mounting pressure from the Town faithful. Bookmaker William Hill have responded to the growing media speculation surrounding Keane and are offering odds on whether he will see out the season at Portman Road. Hills have quoted odds of 8/15 that he does last 46 games and 11/8 that he leaves before May and The Sack Race team certainly know where our money would be going on this market!

William Hill have also priced up the odds for 'against which team will Ipswich register their first win of the season?' Saturday's trip to Plymouth is the favourite at 8/5, with next weekend's game at home to Derby a 5/2 chance. They then face Reading (a) and Sheffield Wednesday (h), both of which are chalked up at 6/1. Whilst the chance of their first three points of the season coming at Cardfiff on 29th November is 20/1, the likelihood of which would surely have seen Keane leave had they not won any of the previous four! It is 9/2 that the Tractor Boys enter the month of December still without a win.
