Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Match preview
A 2-0 victory over Leeds in their previous clash in the campaign ended Sheffield Wednesday’s three-game Championship losing streak.
Blackburn Rovers are winless in six competitive matches, with three losses in it. Also, their most recent encounter with Preston ended in a 1-1 draw at home.
It has to be noted that Sheffield has lost their last two home matches. Meanwhile, Blackburn has also dropped all points in their past two away fixtures in the campaign.
On an overall rate, Wednesday has performed better at home than what the Rovers have achieved on the road in the league this season. Hence, we can expect the fight to be biased towards the home team at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Prediction
Sheffield Wednesday is at the sixth spot in the league table and is leading over Blackburn at the 13th position by a five points difference. Here, it shows that the home team does have an advantage in their overall form in the campaign.
Even though their recent home matches say otherwise, Wednesday does have the capability to perform well at home, especially against weaker sides. Apart from that, Blackburn has also not been successful on the road.
With a few wins on the road, the Rovers cannot challenge Wednesday at Sheffield. Hence, Sheffield Wednesday will have more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes.
Despite a series of winless games in their schedule, the Rovers have still managed to see the back of the net in their last five overall matches. Similarly, Sheffield Wednesday has failed to score in only one of their last five clashes.
So, there is a probability that both teams will score at least a goal in the game.
