Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday evening (19:45) fixture is on Sky Sports (behind the red button) and features a home side without a win against a roadside without a defeat. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to bounce back following a 2-0 road loss to Brentford on Sunday afternoon. They can have few complaints about the result as the London side dominated the match. Millwall picked up their first win of the season (following two draws) with a 2-1 defeat of Derby at the weekend. Jake Cooper and Shaun Williams got the goals that put them two up after twenty minutes and they held on for all three points. The two meetings between these sides last season were both won by the home side and both by the same 2-1 scoreline. In fact, each of their last eight head-to-heads have seen both teams score.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The visitors are the favourites to win this game and while I cannot argue with this the fact that they have won just one of their last five on the road puts me off. Wednesday have lost just one of their last six at home and of the three options the draw makes the most sense. The goals market is tough to judge as Sheffield Wednesday games have seen goals but Millwall on the road tend to not produce many. One thing to note is that the Owls have been behind at half-time in all three of their fixtures so far while the Lions have scored four times in the first-half so back them to be ahead at the interval and that their first team goal to come before 55:00.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls have taken just one point from their first three fixtures though they do have a victory in the League Cup. They sit 21st in the Championship table while the expected goals data table has them a place lower in 22nd. At Hillsborough, they have lost just one of their last six and won three of the previous five in the league. Fernando Forestieri has netted five times and Adthe Nuhiu four times in the last five Wednesday home games. Three of the last four Sheffield Wednesday have played in the league have seen both teams find the back of the net. The Yorkshire outfit have been behind at half-time in each of the three in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Almen Abdi, Kieran Lee and Gary Hooper are all out while Adam Reach is a doubt.

Millwall Preview

The Lions have started the season well with five points from three including two draws and a victory. They are in tenth place in the Championship table with the expected goals data table having them in 13th. Away from the Den, they have lost just one of their last 11 with three of five ending in a draw. None of the last four and eight of the last ten the London outfit have played on the road have gone under 2.5 goals. The four league goals that Millwall have scored this season have been shared around the team with Lee Gregory (2 shots per fixture) proving their main attacking threat. All four goals they have scored this season have come in the opening 45 minutes.
