Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield Wednesday drew a Yorkshire derby at Barnsley in their last match in an encounter that ended 1-1. The Owls took the lead through a Atdhe Nuhiu penalty but were pegged back three minutes later and that was how the scoring ended.

Derby drew their last game 1-1 at home to Norwich but the expected data shows it was the Canaries who dominated the game. Matej Vydra had given County the lead but they shot themselves in the foot by giving away two penalties (only of which was converted).

The reverse fixture came on the 21st October which saw the Rams win 2-0 at their own ground. The Owls had Glenn Loovens sent-off after four minutes and a Matej Vydra penalty and a Bradley Johnson strike secured a comfortable victory.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are favourites for this game but given that they have drawn three of their last four I would not be backing them at these odds. I would not though recommend taking a Wednesday side without a victory in seven.

NO in the both teams to score market makes a lot of sense giving that this would have paid in six of the last eight for the Owls and 12 of the last 15 for the Rams. Three of the last five for the visitors and two of the last four the home side have been goalless at half-time and given the way both teams set up this looks a smart play.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls are now seven without a victory in the league though four of their last five have ended in a draw. They are in 17th but with the sides around the bottom picking up points find themselves just above the bottom three.

At Hillsborough, they are without a league victory in their last seven with defeats in four of their last five. They have netted just two times in their last five in front of their own fans and blanked in four of seven at their own ground.

Atdhe Nuhiu has scored four times in his last six appearances in all competitions. Sheffield Wednesday have bagged around 55% of their goals this season in the second-half with about 40% in the last 30 minutes.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Tom Lees (groin), Joost van Aken (hip), Jacob Butterfield, Glenn Loovens (both illness) and Marco Matias (unknown) are doubts while Gary Hooper (hip), Kieran Westwood (groin), Steven Fletcher, Sam Hutchinson (both knee), Barry Bannan (groin) and Fernando Forestieri (knee) are long-term absentees.

Derby County Preview

The Rams are still unbeaten in their last 12 Championship games though three of their last four have finished all-square. They sit in third place (one point behind Aston Villa) and face just one top ten side in their next six.

Away from the iPro Stadium, they are now undefeated in their last 11 with only Wolves (12) winning more than the nine they have landed on the road. They have conceded just two goals in their last six on their travels.

26 of the 48 goals Derby have scored this season have come in the first-half while just nine of the 24 they have conceded have come in this period. Matej Vydra has netted in the last two and has four in the last six.

Derby County Team News

Kyle McAllister (groin) and Jonathan Mitchell (finger) are doubts while Sam Winnall (cruciate) is out for the season.
