Plymouth vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions & Analysis

Plymouth Argyle continued their extraordinary spell of form on Saturday when they bagged four goals past Accrington Stanley in another League One success.

It was the tenth league victory of the season for Ryan Lowe’s troops who hold the very top of the League One standings after 17 rounds of the competition.

One of these ten victories came against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday (3-0 at home back in September), Plymouth’s rivals in the first round of the FA Cup replay on Tuesday evening.

We saw no goals in the first left played nine days ago Hillsborough. Plymouth will thus have a nice chance to advance to the second round of the competition with a result in front of their fans at the Home Park.

Nevertheless, they will have to work hard to secure a victory here since Sheffield Wednesday are undefeated in the last ten games across competitions.

The Owls drew in four of the last five league affairs, though, a run that includes the weekend’s 1-1 score against the bottom-half Gillingham at Hillsborough.
