However, their Yorkshire rivals will be seeking to put a five-game losing streak, and their well-documented off-field dramas, behind them when they make the short trip down to Hillsborough.
While Sheffield Wednesday don't have a playoff place to play for or any relegation battles to worry about, the next few months could prove to be interesting for Owls fans.
Since Milan Mandaric sold the club to Thai businessman Dejphon Chansiri in January the new owner has set a target of getting the team into the Premier League by 2017, the year which marks Wednesday's 150th anniversary.
Chansiri has also made changes in the boardroom, with ex-Hull City and Derby County chairman Adam Pearson drafted in alongside advisor Glenn Roeder, to form a three-man sporting director committee with manager Stuart Gray.
Gray has already targeted a summer of spending to kick-start Wednesday's push for promotion to the top flight, and that could mean many of his current squad are playing for their futures at Hillsborough.
If that is the case then the Owls have responded with a recent good run of results, having lost only one of their six outings in the Championship, including a victory at home to playoff-chasing Brentford.

Leeds fans may be hoping that the end of the season comes sooner as the club lurches from one drama to another, with the latest being the tale of the 'Sicknote Six'.
With owner Massimo Cellino disqualified by the Football League and banned from Elland Road until the end of the season, perhaps Whites supporters would be forgiven for thinking that the club might start edging back towards normality.
However, manager Neil Redfearn has since lost his assistant Steve Thompson without much explanation from the Leeds hierarchy and last week saw six players withdraw from the squad for the 2-1 defeat at Charlton Athletic through injury.
The United boss, who has said that he will seek reassurances from the boardroom before making any decision on his future, cited a "freakish" series of events that led to glut of absentees against the Addicks, but there is no denying that the events at Elland Road may have had an effect on the Whites' form of late.
While Leeds are in no danger of relegation, they have embarked on a run of five consecutive defeats and are 16th in the table, with no hope of achieving even a top-half finish.
Recent form: DLLLLL
However, Leeds winger Aidy White may make his return to the fold after 12 months out with a knee injury.
Maguire could retain his place in the starting lineup for Wednesday following his late equaliser at Dean Court.
Sheffield Wednesday possible starting lineup:
Kirkland, Buxton, Lees, Zayatte, Helan, Melo, Hutchinson, Lee, Isgrove, Maguire, Lavery
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
S Taylor, Wootton, Bamba, Cooper, C Taylor, Byram, Murphy, Austin, Mowatt, Sharp, Morison
Head To Head
Leeds fans may get shivers about returning to the Steel City this time around, having seen their side lose 6-0 at Hillsborough last term.
However, that demolition of the Whites was Wednesday's only win over their Yorkshire rivals since they earned promotion back to the Championship in 2012.
Both sides have drawn three of the last five meetings, with United's only victory over the Owls coming two seasons ago at Elland Road.
Indeed, Leeds haven't won at Hillsborough since a David Healy penalty steered them to a 1-0 win back in August 2006.
We say: Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 Leeds United
Leeds's poor run of form, combined with Wednesday's relative upturn in recent weeks suggests that this Yorkshire derby is likely to go the home side's way. While we're not expecting the carnage of last season's fixture, we could yet be proved wrong.
