Sheffield Wednesday continue their automatic promotion push in League One as they face Exeter City this weekend.
Sheffield Wednesday currently sit 3rd in League One with twenty-five wins, twelve draws and six losses from forty-three games this season.
The Owls have been on fire for the most part this campaign but a six-match winless run going from March until early April has put their automatic promotion chances in jeopardy.
They largely seem back on track form-wise having won two of their last three matches, but having lost 3-2 to Burton Albion two games back they still don't appear as strong as they were from October-February.
Their most recent game saw them claim a 2-1 win away at Bristol Rovers, an essential three points that keeps them within touching distance of the top two.
Their form at home is still very strong, too, with The Owls having not lost a single game on their own patch since September, having also won three of their last five at home.
Wednesday need to win all three of their remaining fixtures given they're one point behind Ipswich Town in 2nd and two points behind Plymouth Argyle in 1st having played one game more than both sides. They're relying on one of those two sides slipping up at this point so all they can do is win and pray.
Exeter City currently sit 14th in League Two with fourteen wins, eleven draws and eighteen losses from forty-three games this season.
Exeter have had an excellent campaign following promotion from League Two last time out as they look to set to cruise towards a mid-table finish, but it appears as though some of their players' focus may already be on this summer's holiday as their form has tailed off notably now they have nothing left to play for.
They enter this game winless in their last five matches having lost their last five on the bounce.
Most recently, Exeter slumped to a 1-2 defeat at home to Derby County.
In fairness, Exeter have had a very tough run in their last four matches having played a promotion contender in every game, but their showings have still been largely poor and they've taken points off promotion contending sides before this season.
Their away form is very poor too, with Exeter drawing two and losing four of their last six games on the road.
Exeter did take a point off Sheffield Wednesday when the two sides met back in December but given the importance of this result to Wednesday compared to the lack of importance for them it feels unlikely they'll get anything from this game.
For our Sheffield Wednesday vs. Exeter prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.
