Reason For Exeter City vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

  • Exeter City have won three of their last six games and have dropped out of the League Two Playoff places.
  • Sheffield Wednesday have also won three of their last six games and have climbed out of the Championship relegation places.
  • Exeter have been in great goalscoring form, scoring an average of 2.1 goals per game.
  • This is in stark contrast to Sheffield Wednesday who have score 0.65 goals per game on average.

Sheffield Wednesday set to stumble

St James Park is the destination for a Sheffield Wednesday side that has been hit hard by COVID-19 in the past week with their training ground shut and numerous players, as well as caretaker manager Neil Thompson, will be absent from the game as a result.

Exeter have been in great form this season but have hit a rough patch in recent weeks, dropping out of the top seven as a result. They will be keen to pull off a scalp this weekend though and advance in a competition they have historically enjoyed. They’ve scored plenty of goals in League Two and will be keen to add to that tally this weekend.

The season started poorly for Sheffield Wednesday when they were handed a points deduction before even kicking a ball but in recent weeks they’ve found the results to pull themselves out of the relegation places for the first time. Much of that form will now be in question this weekend though with so many first team regulars absent.

It could be a really close battle between the two sides with the Sheffield Wednesday team being unclear and Exeter playing a little below their usual form in recent weeks. There will certainly be plenty of intrigue about the game though and both sides will be keen to impress. We’re predicting that the two sides will be quite evenly matched and are forecasting a draw in this match. There might not be lots of goals in this game however as the two sides try to come to terms with the unusual nature of the game and a 1-1 result and the match being decided by extra-time and possibly penalties seems a fair prediction.

And with both of these high quality outfits thriving and difficult to oppose, we’re also forecasting a 1-1 correct score.
