Derby County

‘Proper Sheffield Wednesday luck’ – Owls fans in disbelief as on-loan striker bags a brace



Hopes of a third consecutive playoff run are all but extinguished at Hillsborough, after Sheffield Wednesday fell to a 2-0 defeat at in-form Brentford.

The Bees ran out comfortable winners under the lights at Griffin Park, with goals from Lasse Vibe and Florian Jozefzoon either side of half-time confirming Dean Smith’s side’s third consecutive win.

Caretaker boss Lee Bullen had restored hope at the club following the sacking of Carlos Carvalhal before Christmas, guiding his side to a comfortable 3-0 at Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day.

However defeat at Griffin Park has left the Owls a massive eleven points from the top-six, a serious mountain to climb in the second half of the campaign.

To make matters worse for Wednesday fans, Carvalhal won his first game in charge at new club Swansea City, and on-loan striker Sam Winnall smashed two goals at Portman Road to guide his Derby County side into the automatic promotion places.

Many had questioned the decision to swap the former Barnsley man for creative midfielder Jacob Butterfield in the summer, and fans took to Twitter to have their say on the player’s latest performance…

There have been 534 goals scored in the 199 Premier League matches played so far this season. That, dear friends, is an average of 2.68 per game. This is one of the reasons we have selected a bumper +1.5 goals coupon with excellent LeoVegas odds for this Saturday.
