Sheffield Wednesday vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides at opposite ends of the Championship form table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield Wednesday lost their third straight game last time out with a 3-1 road defeat at Birmingham. They had taken the lead through Steven Fletcher but were undone by two goals in the last ten minutes.

Norwich made it three straight league victories as a Emiliano Buendia goal gave them a 1-0 victory of Brentford. In midweek, they were away to Bournemouth in the League Cup and lost 2-1 in a spirited showing with Onel Hernandez getting their goal.

The two meetings between these sides last season were won by the home team with it ending 5-1 to the Owls at Hillsborough and 3-1 to the Canaries at Carrow Road. Atdhe Nuhiu netted a hat-trick in one of these ties last season.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Canaries are strong favourites for this game and given the way they are playing and the way Sheffield Wednesday are playing I could not put anyone off backing them though I will look elsewhere for the value.

All seven Sheffield Wednesday home matches this season have seen both teams find the back of the net and this looks the way to play this fixture. Timm Klose meanwhile has three in his last two on the road for Norwich and looks worth a play to score at any time.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls are three without a victory and have won just one of their last six which means they have dropped down to 15th in the table. They now face three straight against teams in the current top four.

At Hillsborough, they are winless in their last four though three of these have ended all-square. The Yorkshire outfit have seen both teams find the back of the net in all seven at their own ground this season.

Sheffield Wednesday have netted 21 goals which is a decent return with of 11 of these coming at home. Their defence is the problem though with only Preston (29) having conceded more than the 26 they have let in.

 

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Daniel Pudil (head) and Marco Matias (hamstring) are doubts while Fernando Forestieri (unknown), Joost van Aken (ankle), Sam Winnall (also hamstring), Kieran Lee (knee) and Gary Hooper (groin) are long-term absentees.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries are going great guns at the moment with three straight victories and just one defeat in their last ten. They are up to fourth in the table and just one of their next six is against a top-half side.

Away from Carrow Road, they are unbeaten in five prior to that having gone through a spell of ten on the road without a win. Timm Klose has found the back of the net in three of his last two away appearances.

Norwich have scored a reasonable 20 goals this season with an even split of ten at home and ten on the road. Their defence has shipped just 17 times and just four in their previous seven.

 

Norwich City Team News

Todd Cantwell, Teemu Pukki (both hamstring), Ivo Pinto (knee), Kenny McLean (ankle) and Grant Hanley (thigh) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (also knee), Aston Oxborough (hand), Louis Thompson (shoulder) and Carlton Morris (cruciate) are long-term absentees.
