Ipswich vs Sheffield Wednesday
England (The Championship)
Date: Saturday, 29th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Portman Road, Ipswich.
It’s been a tough old season for Ipswich, but under the guidance of veteran manager Mick McCarthy the club have guided themselves to safety with 3 wins in their last five games and are 10 points from the bottom three with two games remaining.
They have gone the last 5 games at Portman Road unbeaten and gained 9 points in that time. Their biggest drawback has been the number of games they have drawn which is 10 only Barnsley has the same number. These draws have really held back the club this season.
Sheffield Wednesday are 5th on 78 points and just one more point would secure a definite play-off place. The club look like they will achieve this anyway, but just can’t celebrate yet until it’s done and dusted. Wednesday have the best form in the league where they have won their last 5 games and they have 20 points from their last possible 30.
Away from home they haven’t lost for the past six weeks and that’s three games unbeaten. They have the 5th best away record in the league despite losing 7 times this season.
