Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14th January, 2016
Kick off at 15:00 UK Time
Venue: Hillsborough, Sheffield.
What a clash this should be two top six sides taking on each other and both teams are in superb form. Sheffield Wednesday are in 6th place which is the final position to qualify for the play-offs and they only have a two point advantage over 7th placed Derby so a win is essential.
Though they have drawn their last two games, before then they won their last 3 and are one of the form sides in the league. At Hillsborough they are unbeaten for two months and have won 25 points from a possible 36.
Huddersfield are in 4th place and need all the points they can get as they chase at least 2nd position to give them automatic qualification for the Premier league. Huddersfield are on a six game unbeaten streak where they have won 5 of those and drawn one. On form they would be in 3rd position. They haven’t lost away from home since November 19th when they went down to Cardiff 3-2. They are currently on a 3 game winning streak on the road.
