Two sides with hugely contrasting fortunes meet in the EFL Championship this weekend as Sheffield Wednesday face off against Ipswich Town at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday currently sit 23rd in the EFL Championship with one draw and four losses from their first five games of the league season.
It's been a tough, tough start to life in the Championship for Sheffield Wednesday who entered this season amidst a period of turmoil following the resignation of manager Darren Moore amidst a dispute with the club's board.
Defeats against Southampton, 1-2, Hull City, 4-2, Preston North End, 0-1, and Cardiff City, 2-1, came before a 0-0 draw away at Leeds United last time out.
The Owls will be pleased to have chalked their first point on the board but they were fairly fortunate to have scraped a draw after playing almost the entire game in their own box.
Still, manager Xisco Muñoz will be pleased at his side's resolve and overall defending and they'll hope they can use that as a foundation for further results in the near future.
They've lost both games on their own patch so far this season but both were narrow losses and even though they're facing a very good side here they'll believe they can get a result against a team they shared a league with last year.
Ipswich Town currently sit 2nd in the EFL Championship with four wins and one loss from their first five league games of the season.
The Tractor boys have registered wins over Sunderland, 2-1, Stoke City, 2-0, Queens Park Rangers, 2-0, and Cardiff City, 3-2, while falling to a 3-4 loss at home to Leeds United.
Ipswich's most recent game saw them claim a thrilling 3-2 win over Cardiff having fallen 0-2 behind before a goal from Nathan Broadhead followed by a Freddie Lapado brace sealed an entertaining win for the hosts.
Ipswich have taken to life back in the Championship like a duck to water and having impressed so thoroughly in the opening weeks many people are talking about successive promotions for Kieran McKenna's side.
That's still a long, long way away but there's no denying that Ipswich look more than at home in this division and even after an impressive summer in terms of recruitment it's last season's players that are largely doing the damage for The Tractor Boys.
If the likes of Omari Hutchinson and Dane Scarlett can be successfully integrated into the fold and can make good on their potential then Ipswich could go to an even further level.
For now, they should back themselves to walk away from Hillsborough with the lion's share of the spoils as they face a struggling side.
For our Sheffield Wednesday vs. Ipswich prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.
