Sheffield Wednesday vs Ipswich Town
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Saturday offers us a battle in the second part of the table as Sheffield Wednesday hosts struggling Ipswich Town.
Wednesday have been far from their standards. The team had a tough campaign last year and now looks to be in a similar spot. Things are just not working out well. Sometimes the team fails defensively, others up front theres always something eluding.
Last round though The Owls improved and Luhukay will be looking to somehow keep up the decent performance. Wednesday didn’t have huge advantage over Millwall but managed to be more clinical in front of goal. Goals from Barry Bannan and Lees secured a nice 2-0 lead before Tunnicliffe rounding off the final score of 2-1.
Ipswich Town are still winless this season. That’s a huge contrast to last season when they had a good start. Now things are not looking well. The Tractor boys have scored just 3 goals in their 4 games which is the main reason behind their troubles.
Last round Paul Hurst’s men took another blow. They visited Derby just to get a 2-0 defeat. Interesting fact to note here is that The Rams had the same number of shots on goal as Ipswich had – 2. The difference though was in the finishing – 2 goals for Derby while none for the visitors.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Ipswich: Head-to-head

Sheffield Wednesday vs Ipswich: Predictions
Luhukay will try to channel the good performance from midweek into this fixture. Wednesday have decent quality and just needs to find the right rhythm. Ipswich are looking a bit shaken right now and considering their away form last season they may go back home empty handed.
