Barnsley or Ipswich to win as the Championship gets underway on Saturday at Portman Road?

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw!

This 3pm kick-off will see Barnsley make a return to the Championship following our barnstorming second half to last season when the Reds stormed up the League 1 table to go up via the play-offs at Wembley, where we also won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Ipswich will play hosts in Paul Heckingbottom’s first official match as Barnsley’s head coach after his caretaker spell last season.
