Our prediction for this Championship match:
Legendary Hillsborough stadium will be the centre of attention when Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall lock horns in the Championship round 16. The Owls aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Bristol City and given their rock-bottom position in the standings, they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Lions. Experienced midfielder Barry Bannan misses out through suspension, while Mohamed Diaby has yet to overcome a leg injury.
Meanwhile, the capital club aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in the English second tier. Considering that Sheffield Wednesday want this win more than Millwall, we predict that the visitors are going to return to London with their hands-empty. The visitors will be without Joe Bryan, Duncan Watmore, and Matija Sarkic in Saturday’s encounter, while both Emakhu and Longman are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in the last league match.
