Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town go head to head at Hillsborough in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Sheffield Wednesday have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Birmingham City on the road, while losing to Brentford at home ground. The Owls will be without Dunkley, Iorfa, Lees, and Urhoghide in Saturday’s clash, while Brown and Shaw are rated doubtful.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to make amends fo back-to-back losses to Stoke City and Millwall. Luton Town have been struggling in front of goal of late, and seeing that Sheffield Wednesday have turned their Hillsborough into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at the venue the Owls defeated the Hatters thanks to Kadeem Harris’ goal.
