Can Ipswich Town climb back into the top two?

After a six-game winning streak, Ipswich couldn’t have picked a worse time to slip up, falling 2-1 away at Cardiff last weekend despite leading as late as the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time. At the same time, this weekend’s opponents Sheffield Wednesday saw their own four-game winning streak — which has given them hope of staying up — ended 2-0 by Yorkshire rivals Leeds United. As a result, the Whites have climbed above the Tractor Boys into the second and final promotion spot.

Ipswich have occupied a promotion spot for large swathes of this season and will feel sick at dropping below the line at this stage, especially given the nature of their defeat last week and the form they’d been on.

However, there’s still plenty of football left to play in the Championship and this weekend brings around a contest between an Ipswich side with just one home defeat in the league this season and a Sheffield Wednesday outfit with only 13 points on the road. Kieran McKenna’s men will want to get back to winning ways to take full advantage of any potential mistakes from Leeds against Millwall.
