Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 26 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium (Sheffield).
Sheffield Wednesday and Brentford are going to face each other on Tuesday evening in the 33rd round of English Championship.
The hosts cannot be content of their overall campaign as they are very far from challenging the promotion playoffs. However, they have improved their game and home side hasn’t lost six times in a row in this competition. They are sitting on the 15th spot and if Sheffield Wednesday manage to keep up the form, they might catch up the teams from top half of the table.
Steve Bruce’s side hasn’t been too productive, while their defence allowed a lot of goals. Sheffield Wednesday improved their home displays lately, however they have spilled too many points in draw matches.
Brentford had a very good start of the season, but they entered a winless streak which pushed them to the bottom half of the table. However, the visitors managed to pick themselves up lately and they celebrated four times in the last five rounds.
Neal Maupay and the lads are one of the most productive teams in the competition, however their bad defending prevented them of being more competitive in the promotion race. Brentford’s away displays haven’t been too convincing as they manged to pick up just one victory from away grounds.
