Sheffield Wednesday vs Sheffield United Match Preview
Sheffield Wednesday made it back-to-back victories in midweek and stretched their unbeaten run to seven with a 2-0 victory over Brentford. They have moved into the top-half and going into the weekend sat just six points behind the play-offs.
At Hillsborough, the Owls are unbeaten winning are unbeaten in eight winning five of these including their last two. Steven Fletcher has netted five times in his last four appearances in front of his own fans.
Sheffield United won their third consecutive game last weekend as they defeated West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns. They sat second going into this round of fixtures but now know what they have to do to keep pace at the top.
Away from Bramall Lane, the Blades are unbeaten in their last three and have lost just one of nine. Billy Sharp has netted eight goals from his last seven road appearances in the Championship.
Sheffield United are flying at the moment and have some great results but having to face their local rivals is not an easy ask and I could not be with the visitors here. Especially, as Wednesday are in good form themselves with no home loss in eight and with an eye on the play-offs. The way to play then is to take the Owls to win the game with the safety of the draw no bet.
Goals could be tight with the last two meetings between these sides ending goalless. In that case, instead of taking an anytime goalscorer try the first goalscorer market and look at Steven Fletcher who has five in his last four at Hillsborough.
