Simeon Gholam and David Prutton look ahead to Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Leeds on the Sky Sports Championship Predictions podcast

One slight slip from Leeds United last weekend at Huddersfield was enough to hand the impetus back to Ipswich in the promotion race.

But this weekend Leeds go first, as they visit Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night, and they have the chance to take back second spot for at least 18 hours or so.

It won’t be easy, however. The Owls have four wins from five and will be incentivised by the knowledge that a point at Hillsborough takes them out of the bottom three for the first time since the second week in August. It really is all to play for.

It’s live on Sky Sports Football from 7pm on Friday night; Kick-off 8pm.

Then onto Saturday lunchtime, where Ipswich Town attempt to make it seven wins on the spin at Cardiff City.

They will only be able to watch on Friday night as their promotion rivals take centre stage, but they know their destiny is in their own hands.

Here is how you can watch Sky Bet Championship matches live across Sky Sports this season, as well as free match highlights throughout the entire season.

Cardiff, however, have enjoyed a renaissance themselves. Three wins on the spin has brought back to life a slim chance of the play-offs. It is a tough trip to say the least.

It is live on Sky Sports Football from 12pm; kick-off 12.30pm.

West Brom aim to bolster play-off hopes at survival-hunting Huddersfield

Onto Sunday, where the action switches to the John Smith’s Stadium for our third live Championship outing of the weekend.

Huddersfield are the hosts, as they look to bounce back from their first defeat under new boss Andre Breitenreiter, and they could well be in the bottom three by the time we kick-off in this one.

Visitors are West Brom, who possess a new wing-wizard in Mikey Johnston, and an unlikely new goalkeeping option in Cedric Kipre. Whatever happens the Baggies will be in the top six by the end of the weekend, it’s just about how much they can continue to nail down that position.

It is live on Sky Sports Football from 11.30am on Sunday; Kick-off is at midday.
