Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday have recorded recent back-to-back wins in the Championship with victories against Wigan Athletic and Ipswich Town and The Owls will be keen to add a third struggling outfit in the shape of Reading to their recent collection of wins this Saturday afternoon.

Wednesday’s fortunes have taken a turn for the better in recent weeks and this is in no small part to the efforts of caretaker-manager Steve Agnew who has helped steady the ship since the departure of former boss, Jos Luhukay.

The hosts have lost just once in their last seven matches in the second tier which was a heavy 3-0 loss away at the in-form Hull City, but wins over Preston North End, Middlesbrough, Wigan Athletic and Ipswich Town should be a big boost for the home side for this encounter.


Key-Facts – Sheffield Wednesday v Reading

  • Sheffield Wednesday have lost just 1 of their last 7 in the Championship
  • Reading are without an away win for 11 matches
  • Reading have won just 2 of their last 28 matches away from home


Reading Prediction

Reading sit third from bottom in the Championship but are just a point adrift of fourth from bottom club Rotherham United ahead of this weekend’s action in the second tier. Reading have recorded just one league win from their last 14 matches overall which was a 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest which seemingly came from nowhere.

The visitors have drawn their last two matches on the trot with stalemates against Bolton Wanderers 1-1 and a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last Saturday. Away from home looks bleaker as The Royals are without an away win since mid-September when they won 3-2 at Preston North End, but they’ve since slumped to 11 matches without a win on the road.

Reading possess a pretty poor away record of 1-7-7 13/22 which includes six defeats in their last nine matches (the other three matches were draws), with the Berkshire outfit keeping just two clean sheets on the road all season.

The bigger picture shows us that Reading have recorded just two away wins from their last 28 matches on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield Wednesday have been boosted by the arrival of new manager, Steve Bruce, and The Owls should account for a poor Reading outfit at Hillsborough.
