Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Moore’s men keep their survival hopes alive?

Sheffield Wednesday have yet to recover from their points deduction before a ball was kicked. However, things have not been good enough on the field, winning just 12 of 44 Championship games. Also, the Owls have been beaten 23 times, with only Wycombe Wanderers and Rotherham United suffering more defeats.

Darren Moore’s men have managed to win just one of their last five games, picking up four points from a possible 15 since that huge 5-0 home win over Cardiff City a month back. Last weekend, Wednesday crashed to a damaging 3-1 defeat at Middlesbrough.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0724 GMT, Friday 30 April)

Sheffield Wednesday are in 23rd spot with 39 points to their name. They are currently four points behind 21st-place Derby County, who they face at Pride Park on the final day of the season.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds to pick up first win in five?

Having failed to win in four, Nottingham Forest will want to end their season on a high. After travelling to Hillsborough this weekend, the Reds end what has been a tough campaign with a home match against Preston North End.

Chris Hughton has made Forest tough to beat since taking over. The Midlands outfit head to the Steel City having lost only one of their last seven in the Championship. The Reds are in 17th position with 51 points to their name.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

At the City Ground last term, Sheffield Wednesday picked up an impressive 4-0 win. However, Forest got revenge in the reverse league meeting this term, with goals from Yuri Ribeiro and Lewis Grabban enough for a 2-0 victory. That was the Reds’ first success over Wednesday in four attempts.


Key Facts – Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Sheffield Wednesday have lost just one of their last five on home turf
  • Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in four on the road (one win, three draws)
  • Forest have suffered just two away losses since the turn of the year


Hughton’s boys have been tough to beat away from home in 2021, with just Swansea City and Watford winning home matches against the Reds. Forest were too strong in the reverse game at the City Ground, and we fancy the away team to win this one at 12/5.

After five straight home wins, Wednesday have only failed to score in two of their following eight at home. We are backing Moore’s men to score in defeat at Hillsborough on Saturday, dropping into EFL League One as a result. The Nottingham Forest win and both teams to score is nicely priced at 6/1.
