Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
Date: 2nd January 2017, Monday.
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield.
Sheffield Wednesday strike late at the Deepdale stadium to steal a point from Preston in the Championship clash on New Year’s Eve. This helped them to stretch their unbeaten run in the league to 4 matches with the previous three being all wins. The Owls are sitting at 6th in the league table and will back themselves for another win at their home ground.
Wolves have shown some drastic improvements in recent weeks. But their morale is dealt with a blow after QPR strike late to snatch a win at Molineaux on matchday 24. They were coming on the back of consecutive wins and QPR on a 6 match losing streak. This was expected to be an easy affair for Wolves, but they will be kicking themselves for rued chances. The head-coach Paul Lambert was quick to point out that his team lacked the finishing skills to see off a match like this.
