Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Owls pull out of bottom three?

A 1-1 draw away from home at Blackburn Rovers wasn’t enough to save former Sheffield Wednesday boss, Tony Pulis, from being shown the door at the Yorkshire club after achieving just one win from his brief 10-match tenure, but The Owls head into this New Years Day clash against Derby County on the back of a three-match run without a loss.

A 1-0 home win over Coventry City proved to be Pulis’s only league win for the hosts but this was followed by a 2-1 home win over Middlesbrough which has given Wednesday hope of climbing out of the bottom three of the Championship.

However, the fact remains that Sheffield Wednesday have picked up just two wins out of their last 12 matches overall in the second tier but they’ve won their last two home matches on the trot.

Our betting suggestion:

Derby County Preview – Can Rams continue revival?

Despite their recent 1-0 defeat at home to Preston North End, Derby County have seen their previously ailing fortunes undergo a welcome revival in the Championship as The Rams have lost just one of their last eight matches in the second tier and will fancy their chances at Hillsborough on New Years Day too.

Wins against Millwall, Swansea City and Birmingham City, the latter being a 4-0 thrashing of The Blues at St Andrews has breathed new life into Wayne Rooney’s side and they too bring a three-match unbeaten run (on their travels) into this clash at Hillsborough.

Perhaps even more impressive is that Derby have kept clean sheets in each of these last three away matches while the visitors are also unbeaten in each of their last four meetings against Sheffield Wednesday.
