Our prediction for this Championship match:
Adams Park will host Saturday’s football game between Wycome and Sheffield Wednesday. The Wanderers do not seem to be competitive at this level, but they did well to hold Watford to a draw in midweek. This surely gave the team a confidence boost, but the newcomers need to keep on making progress if they are to secure the Championship survival. Midfielder Dominic Gape is rated doubtful for the Sheffield Wednesday clash.
The Owls, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Rotherham United, with the team paying price for a number of absentees. The likes of Dunkley, Iorfa, and Urhoghide remain in the recovery room with injury, while Lees is sidelined through suspension. Considering that duo Brown – Shaw will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up one point from the match.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Allsop):
Born in Birmingham, England on June 17, 1992, Ryan Allsop is a professional footballer who started his youth career at West Bromwich Albion. Speaking of his senior career, the 191-cm tall goalkeeper played for the likes of Hottur, Leyton Orient, Bournemouth, Coventry City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Lincoln City before signing a permanent deal with Wycombe Wanderers.
The goalkeeper, who spent the 2015/2016 season on loan at Wycombe, returned to the club after he was released by the Cherries. Ryan Allsop has 5 caps with the England U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team.
His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Wycombe which should expire on June 30, 2021. The English shot-stopper did well to keep 10 clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Wanderers in the 2018/2019 League One season.
Highlighted Team (Sheffield Wednesday):
Sheffield Wednesday are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Sheffield (South Yorkshire). The Owls compete in the English second tier (Championship) and they play their home matches at Hillsborough.
The venue was the scene of the Hillsborough disaster which occurred in 1989 when 96 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death in the FA Cup semi-final. It has to be noted that the World Cup (1966) and the Euro (1996) matches were played at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday have won four First Division trophies (1902/2903, 1903/1904, 1928/1929, 1929/2930) and they finished the 1960/1961 campaign in second place in the standings. The Owls have clinched three FA Cup trophies (1896, 1907, 1935), with the team winning the League Cup in 1991.
Sheffield Wednesday defeated English giants Manchester United (1-0) in the title game. Sheffield United are regarded as the Owls’ main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Steel City derby.
