Few goals predicted in tough EFL championship clash

Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea continue their promotion quest in an EFL Championship fixture at Hillsborough. Both teams have a history of playing out low scoring matches and this clash is tipped to follow the trend.

Sheffield Wednesday Form

Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 2-1 defeat at Blackburn in their last Championship outing. Following a cagey first half, they took the lead on 83 minutes but failed to hold on and conceded twice late on.

The Owls do their best work at Hillsborough where they often make life difficult for opponents. Garry Monk's men are unbeaten in four of their last five home matches and crucially have kept clean sheets in the last three.

Sheffield Wednesday News

Dominic Iorfa and Julian Borner have been pivotal to Sheffield’s defensive solidity at home and both men should start at centre back on Saturday. Steven Fletcher should continue to lead the line for Sheffield Wednesday.

Swansea Form

Swansea travel to Hillsborough off the back of a 2-1 win at Wigan in the Championship. Nathan Dyer’s early opener was cancelled out by the Latics before Sam Surridge struck the winner.

The Swans have been good on the road lately having gone unbeaten in their last nine away matches, stretching back to last season. Steve Cooper's men have also maintained a solid defensive record on their travels as they have not conceded more than once in their last seven away fixtures.

Swansea News

Swansea will be without defender Joe Rodon who is sidelined with an ankle injury. Mike van der Hoorn and Ben Wilmots should continue their partnership in central defence while Andre Ayew is set to start in attack despite scoring  just three goals this season. 

Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea Head to Head

Swansea have a 3-1 edge with four draws from eight previous matches against Sheffield Wednesday. There has been over 2.5 goals in five matches in that run while both teams have claimed one win each in the last two meetings.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea Match Up 

Sheffield Wednesday do not score enough but have built their season on a solid defence. Dominic Iorfa and Julian Borner have helped the team to three straight clean sheets at home and will be confident of shutting out the Swansea.

Swansea have also looked solid at the back, particularly on the road with Mike van der Hoorn and Ben Wilmots impressing lately. Both men should comfortably shut out a Sheffield attack that has looked unconvincing in recent weeks.
