Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest will attempt to put their 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.

Nottingham Forest Form

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