Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday early evening (17:30) game features two of the best supported sides in the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield Wednesday drew their last game before the international break as it finished 1-1 at Burton. They took the lead through Gary Hooper but were pegged back in a game that a draw seemed a fair result. Nottingham Forest went down at home to Leeds before the international break suffering a 2-0 home loss. They can have few complaints about the result as they struggled to break down a well-drilled unit. The Owls have dominated recent meetings between the duo winning each of the last five including the two last season. Kieran Lee grabbed a brace in this corresponding fixture and has three in the last five head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Despite a recent drift in form I think Forest can get something here. Their two defeats this season came at Barnsley in a game they deserved something out of and at home to Leeds who are looking top two contenders this season. Wednesday have been held by QPR and Sunderland and the East Midlands side have better firepower than either of those. Daryl Murphy has found the back of the net in both Tricky Trees away games this season and I like the look of him to get something here so take him each-way in the first goalscorer market.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Three draws, one win and one defeat is a solid if unspectacular start to the season for Sheffield Wednesday. Three of their next four are at home in the league including a Steel city derby clash with United. A lack of goals has been an issue for Wednesday with just four from their five while at the back they have shipped just four making them a side not to be with in the over 2.5 goals market. It was a quiet deadline day for Sheffield Wednesday who eased their glut of strikers by letting Sam Winnall go to Derby on loan in exchange for midfielder Jacob Butterfield. They also added at the back by signing Dutch defender Joost van Aken.

Nottingham Forest Preview

After winning their opening two league games it is now three points from their last three for Forest. This marks the start of a tricky period of fixtures with each of their next five coming against teams who featured highly in the ante-post betting. Eight goals from five games indicates that the East Midlands outfit know where the back of the net is. The issue comes at the other end as they have also shipped eight times which means a total of 16 goals from five games. Forest made just one move ahead of the transfer deadline by strengthening at the keeper slot with a loan deal for Adam Federici though they failed to secure a move for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.

David Vaughan (groin) and Jamie Ward (calf) are both set to miss the next few weeks.
