Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby Predictions & Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough, Sheffield.

Mid-table team Sheff Wed is hosting one of the teams in contention for promotion to the Premier League next season, Derby, at the Hillsborough, this Saturday, as part of the 18th round fixtures in the English Championship.

Derby will be heartbroken after their submissive loss at home, to a lower-placed team Aston Villa, last weekend. Aston Villa defense completely shut out the Derby forwards, and the visiting frontline put three goals past the helpless Derby backline. The game appeared to be heading towards a draw until the 74th minute.

From that point, the floodgates opened for the home team. And they conceded three goals in the space of ten minutes. The final scoreline read 0-3.

Sheff Wed will be pleased that they were able to play out a tough away draw against local but stronger rivals Sheff Utd. The draw will be a moral victory for Sheff Wed, considering their away status for the game, and the fact that McGoldrick missed a penalty for the hosts.
