Fresh from their impressive win over Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday welcome Blackburn to Hillsborough for an EFL Championship fixture. Blackburn are on a lengthy winless run making the Owls likely to take all the points here.

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday were impressive in their last Championship fixture as they claimed a 2-0 victory at Leeds. They withstood several attacks from Leeds before a quick-fire double from Jacob Murphy and Atdhe Nuhiu sealed the win late in the second half.

It was the second straight win for Sheffield Wednesday who also knocked out Premier League side Brighton 1-0 in the FA Cup.  Garry Monk’s men also have a fine home record having gone unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches at Hillsborough.

Blackburn Form 


Blackburn were held to a 1-1 home draw by Preston North End in their previous Championship outing. They took the lead early in the first half through Adam Armstrong but were quickly pegged back by Preston.

The result means Rovers are now winless in their last six matches and have slipped into the bottom half of the table. Tony Mowbray’s men have also found things difficult on their travels having lost their last three away matches.

Blackburn News


Blackburn are in the middle of an injury crisis with top scorer Bradley Dack, Greg Cunningham and Joe Grayson all out for the rest of the season. Midfielder Corry Evans is also set for a spell on the sidelines while Elliott Bennet and Ryan Nyambe are also injured.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Head to Head

Sheffield have won the last three home meetings but were beaten 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Match Up


Even without Steven Fletcher, Sheffield Wednesday have enough attacking quality in the team. Jacob Murphy, Atdhe Nuhiu and Jordan Rhodes have all been among the goals lately and should cause the Blackburn defence plenty of problems.

Sheffield Wednesday have also impressed defensively lately keeping clean sheets in their last two matches. They will be confident of shutting out Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong, who has just one goal in his last three Championship matches.
