Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest will attempt to put their recent struggles behind them when they meet in an English Championship fixture at Hillsborough. Both teams are coming off heavy defeats and are tipped to battle to a draw. 

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday were disappointing in their last Championship fixture as they were hammered 5-0 at Brentford. They were disorganised at the back and poor in attack, failing to convert any of their seven attempts on target.

It was the third straight defeat for the Owls who are now well off the pace in the playoff race. They have found things difficult in attack, scoring one goal or less in their last four Championship matches.

Sheffield Wednesday News


Sheffield Wednesday are without defenders Moses Odubajo and Adam Reach who are both sidelined with injury. Midfielder Massimo Luongo is also injured and expected to miss Saturday’s match.


Nottingham Forest Form


Nottingham Forest are also coming off a disappointing defeat as they were beaten 3-0 at home by Millwall in their last Championship fixture. They were wasteful in attack, failing to make any of their four attempts on target count.

Forest are barely holding on to a playoff place following a string of poor results in recent matches. Sabri Lamouchi’s men have claimed just one win from their last six matches and have scored one goal or less in three of their last four fixtures.

Midfielder Tiago Silva is ruled out of Saturday’s match with injury and joins defender Tendayi Darikwa who is already a long-term absentee. Midfielder Samba Sow has recovered from an ankle problem and is in contention to feature on Saturday.
