Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s football game at Hillsborough pits together Sheffield Wednesday and Bournemouth. The Owls suffered an unexpected 1-0 loss to Wycombe Wanderers in their last league match, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into goals in the second half. Sheffield Wednesday failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, and, no doubt, they face a difficult task in the midweek clash against the promotion-chasing side.
The Cherries, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Derby County at the weekend, with the team dropping to second position in the standings. Bournemouth aim to get back on course as soon as possible, and they should take advantage of Sheffield Wednesday’s anything but good form. Jefferson Lerma is the only absentee in the away side, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Josh Windass):
Born in Hull, England on January 9, 1994, John Windass is a professional footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic. Windass is a product of Huddersfield Town youth academy, but he did not play for the Terriers at senior level.
The 175-cm-tall midfielder began his senior career at Accrington Stanley and after scoring 22 goals in 77 appearances in the league for the club, he moved to Glasgow Rangers in the summer of 2016. Two years later Josh Windass joined Wigan Athletic and he has been playing for the DW Stadium outfit ever since. He scored his first Championship goal on September 18, 2018 in a 2-1 win over Hull City.
His main position is attacking midfield, but he is used as both central midfielder and second striker as well. It has to be noted that Josh is the son of former footballer Dean Windass, who played for the likes of Hull City, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Bradford City during his professional career.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever.
Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469.
The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history.
Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
