Our football match prediction:
Sheffield Wednesday were not into action at the weekend. Carlos Carvalhal’s troops had enough time to rest for Tuesday’s football match against Bristol City, but they eventually played out a 2-2 draw with Lee Johnson’s team. The Owls dropped to seventh place in the Championship standings, but a win over Wigan Athletic would see them regain their spot in top six. Sheffield Wednesday have been impressive at home this season, but they recorded only two wins in previous nine away fixtures. The Latics are desperate to secure the Championship survival and it seems that they have found their best form of late. Wigan Athletic recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Burton Albion and Brentford in previous two league fixtures, but, as expected, they were not capable of spoiling Manchester United’s party at Old Trafford in Sunday’s FA Cup game. Anyhow, the Latics are tough to beat at home and we predict that they will grab something from the match against Wednesday.
