Recent results have put paid to any hopes that Sheffield Wednesday had of finishing in the top six but in no danger of being relegated either. Their opponents, Charlton, still require points to ensure they remain a Championship club next season.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Wednesday end a dire run of seven games without a win and rediscover some form?

There was much excitement surrounding Sheffield Wednesday and their prospects of finishing in the top six, with the possibility of winning promotion to the Premier League. Since Christmas Day, however, the Owls have really fallen away. It’s now just one win in their last 13 matches which has all but ended their hopes of finishing in a playoff position. Gary Monk’s men are now 11 points behind Preston in sixth with six teams in between.
The biggest concern for Monk will be trying to get his team back to winning games on a regular basis and Seven defeats in 13 games is just simply not good enough for a team who had playoff aspirations.
Our betting prediction:
Charlton win/under 2.5 goals

Bet at Paddy Power

Home supporters going along to Hillsborough on Wednesday will be hoping to see their team win a Sheffield Wednesday victory in the league since before Christmas which would have been unimaginable to think at the time. Wednesday had lost just one of their first 11 home games of the season but have now lost four of their last five.
It’s also just one goal in their last five matches at Hillsborough which is terrible by anybody’s standards.

Charlton Preview – Are Charlton set to build on weekend win over Luton to pull further clear of the bottom three?

I previewed Charlton’s match away game against Stoke earlier this month stating it could be a pivotal match in both club’s hopes of staying in the league. Defeat that day could easily have seen the heads go down amongst Lee Bowyer’s men. However, it’s to their immense credit to have come out and win two of their next three matches.

An excellent 1-0 victory away to playoff-chasing Nottingham Forest and a comprehensive win against fellow strugglers Luton at the weekend mean Charlton are now five points clear of the relegation zone. However, with Huddersfield and Luton winning big home games on Tuesday there is still a lot of pressure on them coming into this game.

The win over Forest was only Charlton’s third away victory of the season which is an indication of just how much of a struggle it’s been for them on their travels but also shows how significant the win was.

If they can muster a repeat of that performance then it would go a long way to their hopes of staying in the division. And it would be the perfect preparation going into Saturday’s huge match away to Huddersfield. A team who they are level on points with going into this match.


Sheffield Wednesday vs Charlton Betting Advice

Wednesday were far too good for Charlton when the team’s met earlier in the season but the circumstances are very different now. The Owls’ form has fallen off a cliff and they’re really struggling for goals at the moment. Charlton have shown their resilience time and time again of late and their need for points is greater than that of their opponents which may be important going into this game.

Key Facts – Sheffield Wednesday vs Charlton Betting Tip

  • One win in 11 league games have seen Wednesday fall out of playoff contention, now 11 points behind sixth
  • Three wins in five have given Charlton real hope of survival, pushing them five clear
  • Wednesday took the spoils when the team’s met at They Valley earlier in the season, winning 3-1


We all know the unpredictability of the Championship and how competitive it is. Wins for Huddersfield and Luton against top eight teams on Tuesday are the latest examples of that. Charlton are not great away from home but they are facing a team in terrible form. The battling qualities Bowyer’s men have shown throughout the season may just give them the edge here and I’m taking them to inflict more misery on their hosts.
