Bristol City host Huddersfield Town able to revel in their Championship status - safety was officially, mathematically confirmed last weekend with a 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers.
It took the Robins a little longer than Town to be absolutely certain of playing in England's second tier next year, but now both teams are in the position of playing out the final two games with little at stake - although pride, points, wins and players seeking to impress should all still be motivating factors at Ashton Gate.
Saturday's opponents kick off four places and two points behind David Wagner's men, one of a clutch of teams all jostling to finish in the lower reaches of mid-table.
But their recent form has been impressive - Lee Johnson's side have lost just two of their last eight matches, and those defeats came against promotion chasers Derby County and Hull City.
However, that draw with Rovers last time out came at a price, with Korey Smith sent off and banned, while defender Adam Matthews suffered a season-ending injury and centre back Aden Flint looks set to lose his battle to regain fitness in time for the weekend.
Both Flint and Smith started at the John Smith's Stadium last December, when a buoyant Town, fresh from David Wagner's first victory in charge over Birmingham City the previous weekend, slumped to a 2-1 home defeat - Flint scoring what turned out to be the winner.
And Town fans will need little reminding of the role Jonathan Kodjia played that day, netting when the game was a mere seven minutes old.
Kodjia remains the danger man for Saturday's hosts, with 17 strikes to his name - three in the last four. His contribution to the club's goalscoring charts is similar to that of Nahki Wells for Town, given second in line, Aaron Wilbraham, has eight.
However, there isn't one man to watch out for if you're aiming to cut out the supply lines. Bristol City have spread the assists around, with Joe Bryan and Luke Freeman both top with six apiece.
It will be interesting to see if David Wagner starts Kyle Dempsey at right back again, given the majority of the Robins' attacks come down their own left hand side. Bryan, whether at full back or in midfield, has had great success in attacking areas.
Averaging 49% possession this season, Johnson's side have excelled on the counter-attack, so Town can expect to see plenty of the ball but will need to be wary of swift moves forward down the wings when they lose it.
It won't have escaped Wagner's notice that Bristol haven't been brilliant at retaining a lead in recent weeks - they went ahead against Derby only to lose, and drew with Brentford and Blackburn after getting their noses in front.
Speaking after the defeat to Bristol City in December, Wagner found some positives to take his then fledgling reign forward, but also bemoaned missed chances and poor defending - declaring that Town lost because of their own failings, rather than because their opponents were better.
He will be keen to prove he was right this weekend.
