Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday continued their impressive and solid form under manager Steve Bruce during the week when they registered a 2-0 win away at relegation candidates, Bolton Wanderers, which extended The Owls’ unbeaten run in the second tier to 10 matches overall.

This improved run of form has seen Sheffield Wednesday tally up five wins and five draws and they’ve steadily climbed the Championship table and are now up to 11th place and just four points adrift of 6th placed Derby County and the play-off pack ahead of this weekend’s action.

At home, Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last nine matches at Hillsborough which includes a greater win ratio of five victories chalked up against Bolton Wanderers, Preston North End, Wigan Athletic, Swansea City and Brentford.

The Owls’ home record has therefore also improved to 7-8-3 23/20 and includes six clean sheets, all of which were attained during this turnaround in form since Bruce’s arrival at the club.

In attack, forwards Fletcher and Joao (9 goals apiece) along with Forestieri (4 goals) look the most likely to score for the hosts here.


Key-Facts – Sheffield Wednesday v Blackburn Rovers

  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last 9 home matches in the Championship
  • Sheffield Wednesday have kept 6 clean sheets in these last 9 at home
  • Blackburn Rovers have lost 3 of their last 4 matches away from home


Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Blackburn Rovers recently ended their miserable run of seven matches without a win in the Championship after they recorded a much needed 3-0 home win against Lancashire rivals, Wigan Athletic during the week.

Rovers had previously lost six of those seven matches, a poor sequence of results which had seen Tony Mowbray’s side slide steadily down the league table, but this recent win over Wigan will give them a boost ahead of their tricky trip to Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday.

However, the fact remains that Blackburn have struggled on their travels in recent times as the visitors have lost three of their last four matches on the road with defeats at Brentford, Reading and Rotherham United, with just a 2-2 draw at Birmingham City to show for their troubles.

Blackburn’s away record of 4-5-9 24/38 includes the joint worst defensive record in the Championship along with Hull City and Wigan Athletic, and this is further underlined by the fact that Blackburn have kept just four clean sheets on the road so far this season, as well as conceding 2 goals or more in 12 of their 18 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield Wednesday are building momentum as each game passes while Blackburn have struggled on the road in recent times.
