This Saturday, two teams on opposite ends of the table face off, each hoping for a positive outcome that could change the destiny of their season. Ipswich will aim to keep their hopes alive, seeking to climb to a direct qualification spot, while Sheffield aims to climb out of the danger zone and secure another year in the Championship.

The hosts will face a difficult set of fixtures ahead, given their challenging promotion run-in. With consecutive wins under their belt, Ipswich will be eager to maintain their form. Currently sitting in third place with 78 points, they are just 3 points behind Championship leaders Leicester City. Additionally, they are nipping at the heels of Leeds United, who hold second place with just one point more. Kieran McKenna will want to sustain the momentum as the Owls target top-flight football next season.

On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday finds themselves battling in a tight spot, with only three points separating them from 17th-placed Plymouth Argyle and just one point behind Birmingham City. Character and determination are running high for a side determined to maintain Championship status. Having lost only once in the last five games, and that too to the table-toppers, the Owls are capable of pulling off surprises.

Danny Röhl will aim to orchestrate a survival story as he builds his portfolio in the footballing world. Despite currently sitting in 23rd place, just above rock bottom side Rotherham United with 38 points, which is a considerable distance from 19th, the bottom half promises plenty of drama in the upcoming fixtures.
