Bristol City

Sky Sports’ EFL expert issues prediction ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Bristol City

Published

Sheffield Wednesday will be eager to pick up three points when they return to action at the weekend, when they take on Bristol City at Hillsborough. 

The Owls were beaten 2-0 by promotion-chasing Swansea City in their most recent fixture, which means that they remain 23rd in the Championship table, and eight points adrift of safety.

To make matters worse, Darren Moore won’t be present on the touchline due to health concerns, and he’ll be hoping his side can pick up a win against Bristol City on Saturday.

The Robins are currently sat 14th in the second-tier standings, and have struggled for a positive run of results themselves in the second-half of this year’s league campaign.

Sky Sports’ EFL expert David Prutton has issued his pre-match thoughts ahead of the game, and felt as though their relegation fears are troubling for the club, before predicting that their clash with the Robins will finish in a 1-1 draw.

“Watching Sheffield Wednesday this week has been quite bizarre. They do have attacking intent and opportunities going forward, but against QPR and then Swansea they just look defensively all over the place. It all looks very troubling for them.

“Bristol City are meandering to the end of the season. It sounds a little bit defeatist, but they still only have to look at the home side at Hillsborough to realise that maybe being in 14th at this stage isn’t a total disaster. All things considered, I think this will end in a draw.”

Are these facts about Sheffield Wednesday's shirts over the years genuine or fake?

Wednesday's traditional shirt is blue and white vertical stripes?

The Verdict: 

I can see Sheffield Wednesday sneaking a win from this one.

We’re at the stage where the Owls need to be picking up wins as soon as possible, and I think it’s the ideal time to play Bristol City.

The Robins have really struggled in the second-half of this year’s campaign, and they could be there for the taking, with Nigel Pearson’s side not having anything to play for from now until the end of the season.

Sheffield Wednesday simply must get something from this game, otherwise I think they’re all but relegated into the third tier of English football already.
