Preston vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
Wednesday has an outside chance to make the playoffs, but it depends on several factors other than their own results. Still, the kind of team they are, the players would go for it. They have to overcome a deficit of four points, with just six left on offer. Their draw against Norwich and win against Bristol has set them up with some momentum.
Preston lost five of their last six fixtures, and the sole win during this stretch came against Ipswich, the dead-last and an already relegated team. It must be complacency due to achieving safety, or just bad form, but anyhow, despite being at home, the team does not possess any kind of advantage in this game.

Preston vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Wednesday was unbeaten in 14 of their last 16 games, and in seven of their last eight ties on the road. On top of that, they are four points away from a playoff spot, and with just six left to play for. With nothing to lose, we can count on the team to give it all they can to achieve their objective. Also take into account that Preston lost five of their last six fixtures, and lost the reverse fixture of this game as well.
Expect Sheffield not to lose this tie at any cost. Moreover, Wednesday netted goals in 12 of the last 14 years and had lost just twice at this venue in the last ten years. Finally, take into account the fact that Preston scored a single goal in their last five games combined.
By all means, Sheffield will be breaking the deadlock first.
