Sheffield Wednesday vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield Wednesday picked up their first victory of the season in mid-week as they defeated Millwall 2-1. Barry Bannan and Tom Lees got the goals that give Wednesday a deserved three points. Ipswich continued their struggles as they went down 2-0 at Pride Park to Derby on Tuesday night. They can consider themselves a little unlucky as neither side really created a clear scoring opportunity. The two meetings between these sides saw Town take four points winning 2-1 in Yorkshire and drawing at home 2-2. The home side has struggled in their head-to-heads winning none of the previous five.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sheffield Wednesday are the favourites and while they beat Millwall in midweek I will not be rushing to back them here.  Ipswich have been a little bit unlucky this season but the price on them is too short given their lack of goalscorer. I like a couple of players here in the anytime goalscorer markets with one selection for each side. For the hosts, I like Liam Palmer who goes off a big price considering he is averaging two shots per fixture. For the visitors, I think Jon Nolan must be due to a goal soon as he continues to test the target.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls picked up a much needed three points in midweek to make it one win, one draw and two defeats from their opening four. They sit in 17th place while the expected goals data table has them in 18th. At Hillsborough, they have taken four points this season and won three and drawn one of their last four. Each of their last three and seven of their last nine at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. Fernando Forestier has bagged two of the five league goals Sheffield Wednesday have scored this season. The Yorkshire outfit have seen six goals netted in the opening halves of their four fixtures.

Almen Abdi and Kieran Lee are out while Gary Hooper is short of match fitness.

Ipswich Town Preview

It has been a tough start to the season for the Tractor Boys who have taken just two points from their first four fixtures and are still seeking a first victory. They sit 21st in the Championship table and according to the expected goals table should be as high as 13th. Away from Portman Road, they have lost both league games and were eliminated on penalties to Exeter in the League Cup. In the league, they have failed to score in both road trips and have netted just five times from their last seven on their travels. Ipswich have netted just three times in the Championship this season with none of their players scoring more than once. They have been level going into the interval in each of their last three and gone on to lose two of these.

Emyr Huws (unknown) is a doubt ahead of this fixture.
