Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday were at the losing end for the second time in four games after Luton edged past them on the road last week with a 1-0 scoreline. To be frank, the hosts hardly made an impact in that latter matchup and finished the ninety minutes with just two measly shots on target.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently on a dismal five-match winless run in the Championship. Miserably, Sheffield Wednesday are now sitting twelfth on the ladder with just forty-four points to their name.

On the other hand, Reading are five points adrift of the hosts at the moment. The guests have not been coping any better in the second division as of late, and have come away with the win just once since the start of the new year.

Their most recent clash, in particular, saw them lose 2-1 to West Brom, that too, at home. To make matters worse, Reading have just two wins to boast of from their past seven outings.

The visitors have not secured the bragging rights in their last three visits here either, and have admitted defeat twice in the process as well. Hence, Reading’s chances of coming away with the win are certainly looking bleak.

Be that as it may, the hosts are on a winless run of their own at home, as we speak. Taking into account that their last meeting with this foe here had also ended as a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be safe.

Furthermore, Sheffield Wednesday are sporting an impressive defensive record at home. They have conceded just fifteen goals here this season, which is just four more than the lowest tally.

Meanwhile, the visitors have also looked sharp in their own defensive third and have kept a clean sheet in two of their past six outings.

Given that three of their last five h2h encounters here have also been low scoring affairs, expect no more than a goal or two on the final scorecards this weekend as well.
