Our football match prediction:
Aston Villa have found their form of late, but they were not capable of spoiling Huddersfield Town’s party at the John Smith’s Stadium at the weekend. The Villans suffered a 1-0 loss to the Terriers on Matchday 36 and, as thing stand now, they will not participate in the Championship play-offs. Steve Bruce has a number of injury worries ahead of Saturday’s football match against Sheffield Wednesday and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered. The Owls, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Burton Albion and they are eager to return to winning ways. Considering that Aston Villa managed to keep three clean sheets in previous four league fixtures, we predict that fans will see a low-scoring affair at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon. When the two teams met at Hillsborough earlier this term Wednesday recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Villa.
Highlighted Player (Agbonlahor):
Gabriel Agbonlahor was born in Birmingham on 13 October, 1986. The English footballer began his youth career in his home-town club Aston Villa and he has been playing for the Villa Park outfit ever since. Agbonlahor, though, played ten league games for the likes of Watford and Sheffield Wednesday in 2005 on loan. The pacey attacker, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, scored 16 goals for Aston Villa in the 2009/2010 Premier League campaign and he helped the team made it to the League Cup final the same season. In 2015 Gabriel Agbonlahor participated in the FA Cup final with Aston Villa, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Villans. The Gunners crushed Aston Villa 4-0 in the title game. Agbonlahor has 16 caps for England U21 team and he played three matches for the senior team. He has yet to score for the England national team. It has to be noted that Gabriel’s father is Nigerian, while his mother is Scottish.
Highlighted Team (Sheffield Wednesday):
Sheffield Wednesday are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Sheffield (South Yorkshire). The Owls compete in the English second tier (Championship) and they play their home matches at Hillsborough. The venue was the scene of the Hillsborough disaster which occurred in 1989 when 96 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death in the FA Cup semi-final. It has to be noted that the World Cup (1966) and the Euro (1996) matches were played at Hillsborough. Sheffield Wednesday have won four First Division trophies (1902/2903, 1903/1904, 1928/1929, 1929/2930) and they finished the 1960/1961 campaign in second place in the standings. The Owls have clinched three FA Cup trophies (1896, 1907, 1935), with the team winning the League Cup in 1991. Sheffield Wednesday defeated English giants Manchester United (1-0) in the title game. Sheffield United are regarded as the Owls’ main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Steel City derby.
