Sides set for open encounter at Hillsborough
Sheffield Wednesday’s relegation to League 1 looks inevitable after their 1-1 draw against Bristol City here on Saturday and it’s difficult to predict whether the Owls will come out fighting for their midweek clash against Blackburn.
Darren Moore’s men aren’t mathematically out of things yet, though they’re seven points behind fourth bottom Derby with just four games left to play and will surely need to take maximum points from here on in to stand any chance of survival.
That looks highly unlikely for obvious reasons and the Owls have won just one of their last seven starts at Hillsborough (D2, L4), so the South Yorkshiremen are easily swerved in the betting this Tuesday night.
However, it’s a similar story with Blackburn who have won just one and lost five of their last nine outings on the road, so we’re keen to avoid the result as this contest could easily go either way.
It’s likely to be an open encounter though with Wednesday chasing a win and both teams to score appeals. Such a wager has landed in five of the last six meetings between the clubs, while both teams have also struck in four of the hosts’ last six fixtures here.
With both sides fancied to get in on the scoring act but neither holding compelling claims, we’re also predicting a 2-2 draw in the correct score market.
