Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wednesday’s football game between Sheffield Wednesday and Waford will bring down the curtain on the Championship round 29. The Owls aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Southampton and Coventry and they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Hornets. Ashley Fletcher should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the FA Cup draw with Coventry City, while all Callum Paterson, John Buckley, and Dominic Iorfa remain on the sidelines.
The Hornets, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Southampton in the FA Cup round 4, but the Saints eventually avoided defeat thanks to Stuart Armstrong’s late equalizer. Watford are not regarded as good travellers and seeing that Sheffield Wednesday want this more than the Hornets, home win should be considered. The good news for the visiting side is that midfielder Ken Sema has overcome his injury.
