It's the biggest game of the season to date in League One as the two title favourites go clash at Hillsborough when Plymouth Argyle make the long trip up north to meet with Sheffield Wednesday with first taking on second.
Ahead of this game, despite being first in the table, it is Wednesday who head into the clash in a better position. The Yorkshire side have a better goals difference thanks to their league-low defensive record of a stunning 18 goals let in from 27 games, compared to Plymouth's 29. The league leaders have scored the second most goals after Ipswich Town, however, with 51 going in for them across their 18 wins, seven draws and three defeats. However, with a better goals difference, Darren Moore's men also have a game in hand to work with in this game. Should his side win this game here and also that game in hand, they could be a healthy three clear of the current league leaders and also ahead of Plymouth on goals difference.
Nevertheless, Argyle are still in great form and have not lost a game in all competitions since a 2-0 home defeat to Port Vale at the very start of December. Their only dropped points since have come in a 0-0 draw with Cambridge United and Bolton Wanderers, while also drawing with Ipswich Town as well in another top-of-the-table clash. Plymouth are also into the semi-finals of the EFL Trophy after beating Bristol Rovers 2-0 three weeks ago. The League One league leaders also beat Cheltenham Town 4-2 last weekend.
As for Wednesday, they head into this one having played Fleetwood Town twice within a week. The first was in a 1-0 win in the league just before a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup fourth round - both ties were at home and Wednesday will clash with Fleetwood once more next week for a replay.
Just like Argyle, however, Wednesday have been on a long unbeaten run but their sensational form stretches back to an early November defeat to Southampton in the EFL Cup. Even then, that loss was on penalties and they actually haven't lost in the league since a 2-1 defeat which was, ironically, against Plymouth. Liam Palmer scored that day for Moore's side, with Sam Cosgrove winning it at Home Park in the 90th minute after Ryan Hardie scored after three minutes for Argyle.
