Tip Reasoning

  • Sheffield Wednesday’s last four home games have contained at least three goals
  • Ipswich have scored at least twice in three of their five games under Kieran McKenna
  • The Owls have only kept one clean sheet in their last six matches at Hillsborough

Inconsistent Owls

Sheffield Wednesday have dropped six points behind the play-off positions after a run of just two wins in seven games, and a large part of that is down to conceding too many goals.

Eight of their last eleven matches have contained three or more goals, a run that has seen the Owls keep just one clean sheet, while they have conceded at least two goals on seven occasions.

The saving grace for Darren Moore’s side is they are scoring plenty themselves. Indeed, although there have only been 29 goals in 11 league games at Hillsborough this season, 18 of those have come in the last five outings.

New manager, big impact

Kieran McKenna has had a flying start to life at Portman Road, winning four of his five games in charge to restore hopes of a return to English football’s second tier.

They have moved into the top half of the table thanks to being tighter in defence and more potent in the final third. Indeed, Ipswich have kept three clean sheets under the new manager and scored nine times.

Three of those five matches under McKenna have contained three or more goals, while James Norwood’s return to the side, and subsequent goal scoring, has been a huge plus.

I predict there will be three or more goals in this one, while Ipswich’s form suggests they could take the victory, so I select a 2-1 away win as a correct score prediction.
