Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can the Owls return to winning ways?

Since the sacking of Tony Pulis, Sheffield Wednesday are still searching for his permanent replacement. However, caretake manager Neil Thompson has done a fine job since taking over on an interim basis.

Before Wednesday’s disappointing 2-0 loss to Coventry at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, the Owls had won three and drawn one of four in the Championship. In recent weeks, Sheffield Wednesday have beaten the likes of Coventry, Middlesbrough and Derby County.

Our betting prediction:
Preston to win 1-0

(odds taken 1302 GMT, Friday 29 January)

Despite their upswing in fortunes of late, Wednesday are still embroiled in a survival battle. The club from the Steel City are in 23rd place with 19 points to their name. The points deduction has not helped, but Wednesday have lost 11 times and picked up just six wins. They could really do with maximum points from this one.

Preston North End Preview – Neil’s boys to leave Sheffield with all three points?

Preston North End are one of the most unpredictable sides in the division. The Lilywhites have blown hot and cold all season, winning 11, losing 12 and drawing three of their opening 26 matches. No side have drawn fewer games than Alex Neil’s boys.

Preston head to Hillsborough in decent form, though, winning four of their previous seven in the Championship. Since back-to-back losses to Nottingham Forest and Bristol City, North End have taken four points from the last six on offer, winning 1-0 at Birmingham City and drawing 0-0 at home with Reading.
