Sheffield Wednesday vs Fulham
Date: Saturday, 21 September
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Sheffield Wednesday (Owls) would have been on a four-game unbeaten run at home if it was not for Nottingham Forest to break their streak in one of the previous home game. Now, they have finished the home run with a draw resulting in two wins and a loss from the four championship home matches. The Owls will be hosting the relegated squad from the Premier League.
Fulham (Cottagers) are currently a point behind the Owls due to their too much draws in the form on the table. They have lost only one game in the away fixture in three Championship away matches in this season. The Cottagers were tied in the previous trip on the road.
The host does have the home advantage but Fulham has come from the Premier League with more experience and skills in the game.

Alexander Mitrovic will be one of the key players to keep an eye on in the game. The Fulham forward has netted goals in three of the four home games in the championship this season. Moreover, he even scored the winning goal in the last meeting that took place here.
Fulham being a relegated team will have the advantage of having faced big teams in recent times giving more experience. Also, the Cottagers have won the previous two meetings with Sheffield at the latter’s home. Besides that, they have fared well in the league close to the host especially in away games.
Henceforth, the match will be controlled by the relegated host with their star player Mitrovic aiding them in the ninety minutes.
