Sheffield Wednesday Prediction – Can Sheffield Weds keep rolling?

A resounding 4-0 win away from home at Nottingham Forest last weekend in the Championship saw Sunday lunchtime’s hosts, Sheffield Wednesday, continue their march towards a possible play-off place later in the season as Garry Monk’s side are building impressive momentum.

Sheffield Wednesday have now gone 5 matches without defeat and it’s this recent upturn in form which has helped the Owls up into the top six and depending on other results on Saturday afternoon, the Sheffield club could find themselves as high as 3rd place if they also beat Bristol City this Sunday.

The Owls have suffered just 1 defeat on home turf at Hillsborough so far this term but they could be facing one of their toughest tests yet in this upcoming clash as Bristol City have also shown impressive form this season too.

With the straight win not being guaranteed here, the goals markets may appeal in this one as 5 of Sheffield Wednesday’s 10 home matches have resulted in both teams scoring.

Bristol City Prediction – Can Bristol City halt Owls progress?

Not if recent results are anything to go by as Bristol City have suffered back-to-back defeats on home turf at Ashton Gate with losses incurred against Millwall and Blackburn Rovers, and these defeats, as well as being a blow, have also resulted in The Robins dropping out of the play-off pack and down to 7th place.

Results have been inconsistent at best for the west country side as the visitors have also picked up recent wins against Huddersfield Town 5-2 and an impressive 2-1 win away from home at Craven Cottage against Fulham, so it’s not all doom and gloom for Lee Johnson’s side.

In addition, Bristol City possess a reasonable looking away record of 5-4-2 18/18 which includes a previous win at Cardiff City, but while recent results have produced a mixed bag of returns, there’s one thing we can almost count on with regards Bristol City on their travels – and that’s goals.

Indeed, with a leaky defence but potent attacking personnel, 9 of Bristol City’s 11 away matches have seen both teams hit the back of the net and this trend could well continue at Hillsborough this Sunday lunchtime.


Key-Facts – Sheffield Wednesday vs Bristol City

  • 5 of Sheffield Wednesday’s 10 home matches have resulted in both teams scoring
  • Bristol City have a better record away from home than at Ashton Gate this season
  • 9 of Bristol City’s 11 away matches have seen both teams score
