Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on DW Stadium when Wigan Athletic and Sheffield Wednesday face each other in the League One round 10. The Latics are seen as one of the main favorites to secure automatic promotion as they are leading the chase for top position ahead of the midweek clash. The league leaders are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Ipswich following Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s unbelievable error in the dying minutes of the match. Sheffield Wednesday aim to return to winning ways, but given Wigan’s brilliant form, we are not tempted to put our money on the visitors. Callum Paterson has overcome his injury, but Josh Windass remains on the sidelines for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
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.
