Tip Reasoning

  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in 12 League One games, as they chase a playoff place.
  • The Owls have only lost once at Hillsborough all season, to fellow promotion-chasers Oxford in early October.
  • Burton have scored a dreadful six goals in 11 away league games, and have lost four on the spin on their travels.

Owl’s unbeaten run puts them in decent position

Sheffield Wednesday’s 12-match unbeaten run has fired them to seventh in the division, just two points from a playoff place and eight from the automatic promotion spots. Wednesday’s last league defeat was also their only defeat at Hillsborough this season, to promotion rivals Oxford in early October.

Only Sunderland have conceded fewer home goals in the third tier than Darren Moore’s team, and only Sunderland and Wigan have conceded fewer overall. The Owls defence could be set for a comfortable Boxing Day when Burton Albion, with just six goals in 11 away games, travel to Sheffield.

The Brewers have only managed two away wins this term, and only five teams, all of them sat in the division’s current bottom six, have scored fewer league goals than Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side this season.

Back a home shutout to secure value

With both teams seeing their games cancelled last weekend, as a result of the Covid-19 crisis affecting English football, there could be a certain amount of rustiness visible in a tight affair. Burton’s dreadful goalscoring record, especially on their travels, means the win to nil market might offer the best value for Sheffield Wednesday backers.

The hosts’ record of 30 goals in 20 league outings, however, is distinctly average, so a narrow 1-0 home triumph could represent a decent correct score prediction.
