Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 9th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).

Nottingham is five points away from the top-six and has no worries of relegation to be bothered about. With 18 points remaining to play for, they will mount a last-ditch effort to take a shot at the Premier League. Their dwindling away form might be a concern though. Throughout the season they have failed to impress on the road.

Sheffield too is just at an arm’s length from the playoffs. They have to overcome a deficit of six points, and with them going strong at home, has a good chance to make the cut-off. This game is also an opportunity to avenge their loss in the reverse fixture, for a narrow margin.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Wednesday was unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 games, the only losses coming against the high-flying Aston Villa, and then Chelsea. At home, they were unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 attempts. On the other hand, Forest is winless in their last 12 matches on the road, and in 19 of their last 22. Also, the last they won at this venue was back in 2014 and lost seven of the last eight meetings with Wednesday.

This season, in particular, Nottingham has been struggling on the road. On top of that, they conceded two or more goals in five of their last six h2h meetings.

Furthermore, Forest failed to score in six of their last nine road trips, while, Sheffield recorded two or more in three of their last five home ties. With their future hanging in balance, expect the in-form Sheffield to go after a win, and record it in style against Nottingham, who has no hope on the road.
