Barnsley vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 1st April 2017
Kick off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Oakwell Stadium.
Can Sheffield Wednesday finally see an end to their crisis? The team with probably one of the most potential attacking lines in the competition has been struggling a lot to find the back of the net before the international break.
The Owls are lucky to still hold the sixth position since Fulham failed to take advantage of their poor form.
The victory over Barnsley is a must for the team led by Carlos Carvalhal.
The tykes have not been enjoying a better shape of their own. Paul Heckinbottom was furious with the team’s owners who let go of their best player in the first part of the season during the January transfer window.
Sam Winnall, who packed in as many as 11 goals for Barnsley, signed just for Sheffield Wednesday in the off-season, but he is yet to reach his full potenti9al in the new club.
Barnsley are winless in last six league outings having lost as many as four of them.
The Owls showed something of their attacking potential in the 5-1 drubbing of Norwich City at Hillsborough Stadium, but they remained winless in three games that followed.
Carlos Carvalhal now has the opportunity to take advantage of the easier schedule and take six points from clashes with Barnsley and Rotherham United to get his team back in the promotional contest.
Barnsley vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head to head
The Owls are much better in the head to head clashes having won 13 out of 25 meetings with the Tykes.
This includes the comfortable 2-0 win at Hillsborough back in December last year.
Barnsley vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
Carvalhal will have the full squad available for this clash. And we expect the attacking trio of Fernando Forresteri, Jordan Rhodes and Sam Winnall to shine against the out-of-form Barnsley side.
The former Barnsley striker Winnall is priced at 7/5 to score against his former club which is an interesting and certainly a worthy shot for this fixture.
