David Prutton has offered his verdict ahead of a huge clash between Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.
The two sides head into the game with intrigue as a new face will be present in either dugout. Danny Cowley takes charge of his first Terriers game, whilst Garry Monk does the same for Wednesday.
Both managers will be looking to get underway with a victory at their new clubs, with either team wanting to further their ambitions this season.
Huddersfield have had an awful start to the season, and have picked up just one point from their first six matches.
The Owls, on the other hand, had been relatively consistent under caretaker manager, Lee Bullen, and sit in 11th place. They’ll be hoping Monk can come in and help them push on and target the top six.
Prutton has predicted Sheffield Wednesday to come away with all three points, with a 1-2 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Speaking in his Sky Sports column, Prutton said: “Two new managers at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. What a moment this will be for Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky, managing a side that were in the Premier League last season, having been PE teachers and part-time managers just a few years ago.
“In the opposite dugout will be Garry Monk, who, apart from perhaps his time at Middlesbrough, has left every club he has been at in a better position than where he found it. I think he will be a very good fit at Sheffield Wednesday and he will start with a win. Just!”
This is set to be a cracker, both sides will be full of energy and ready to go after their new bosses have come to the clubs in the week.
It’ll be interesting to see who can get a foothold in the game and push on to get the victory. I really can’t see much separating these two.
It’s due to be a good crowd, it always is when Wednesday visit the Terriers, and I think it’ll be an even contest, 1-1, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see a winner from either side late on.
