Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolves
England: EFL Championship
Date: Friday, 15th December 2017
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
This is the opening game for round 22 and what a better start than this. Last year’s play-offs team Sheffield Wednesday will be hoping to stop league leaders Wolverhampton. These two sides are on the opposite sides of the form table but Wolves clearly had some troubles last two games.
Wolves stopped their perfect run on Saturday. The team had won 6 games in a row before last round’s draw against struggling for survival Sunderland. On the positive side the team kept yet another clan sheet showing stability at the back. Nuno Espirito doesn’t have any major problems with his squad selection and with the next game coming 8 days later he can use his full strength squad.
Their opponents on Friday night are Sheffield Wednesday. The Owls reached the play-offs last year but as the year before failed in them. This time around they are far from the desired chance to reach the Premier league. After last round’s loss to Norwich the team sits on 15th place whole 10 points behind 6th place and their city rivals United. The team is winless in 5 games dropping significantly in the table and will be looking to get something out of this game.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolves: Predictions
- Sheffield have just a single victory at home against Wolves in 12 games.
- Last game at Hillsborough finished 0-0.
- Sheffield failed to get 3 points in their last 5 games drawing 4 of them.
- Wolves are undefeated in 7 games.
Wolves have slowed their pace recently. After a few impressive victories they scored just once in their last two games before this difficult visit. Sheffield Wednesday are a tough side especially at home and will be looking to deny Wolverhampton the 3 points.
