Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield Predictions


Sheffield Wednesday have been inconsistent and they rarely win. Huddersfield ended last season poorly and they have been unconvincing during pre-season.

With both teams out of form, I am backing a draw in 90 minutes. 

  • Sheffield Wednesday are winless in 9 of their last 13 matches (all competitions)
  • Sheffield Wednesday have drawn their last 3 home matches against Huddersfield (all competitions)
  • Huddersfield are winless in 18 of their last 21 matches (all competitions)

Head-to-Head


Huddersfield have a 26-21 advantage against Sheffield Wednesday in 62 meetings with 15 draws. 

The sides drew 1-1 in their most recent meeting in the Championship last season. Josh Windass opened the scoring for Wednesday before Callum Patterson’s late own goal.

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday have had an up and down pre-season following relegation from the Championship. 

The Owls won three and lost three of their friendlies ahead of the 2021/22 season. Darren Moore’s side lost 3-1 against Celtic before wins against non-league Alfreton (2-0) and Chester (1-0). 

They lost 2-0 to Barnsley and West Brom before a 2-1 win against League Two Port Vale in their final pre-season friendly.

Wednesday were on top for most of the match and created several clear cut chances. They took the lead on 25 minutes when Dominic Iorfa scored a towering header. Vale equalised before Tom Dele-Bashiru curled in the winner with 10 minutes remaining. 

Moore will be desperate to start positively and put behind a terrible end to the 2020/21 season. The Owls won just three of their last 18 matches last season and finished bottom in the Championship on 41 points. 

Sheffield Wednesday Injuries & Team News


Striker Josh Windass is doubtful as he picked up a hamstring injury against West Brom. 

Winger Olamide Shodipo is set to start as part of a front three after an impressive pre-season. 

New goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell is set for his first competitive start after joining the Owls on a season-long loan. 

Huddersfield Form 


Huddersfield’s pre-season got off to a promising start with back-to-back wins against Harrogate (1-0) and Southport (2-0).

Carlos Corberán’s side couldn’t build on promising results and lost 2-0 to Norwich and 1-0 to Fleetwood in their final pre-season friendly. 

The Terriers conceded two goals within 30 minutes, despite dominating the game in the early stages. A late Lewis O’Brien gave Huddersfield hope and Jordan Rhodes went close to the equaliser in the closing stages. 

The result leaves Huddersfield winless in three of their last five away matches. 

The Terriers will want to start their campaign positively after finishing 20th in the Championship last season. A run of three wins in their last 20 league matches was just enough to keep Huddersfield in the second tier for the 2021/22 season. 

Huddersfield Injuries & Team News


Striker Fraizer Campbell and defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green will return to the squad after an isolation period. 

Winger Rolando Aarons remains unavailable due to injury.
