Reason For Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Sheffield Wednesday have just 1 win in 10 Championship outings.
  • Nottingham Forest have lost just twice across their last 12 away games.
  • Forest have lost just 3 of their 19 away trips this season.
  • Wednesday have lost 4 of their last 6 games.

Sinking Feeling

The Championship being paused may have helped these two sides, who were struggling going into this clash back in March. While the visitors are in fifth place in the Championship, but you wouldn’t know it of late.

Forest only have to look at Sheffield Wednesday to see how bad things could get. The visitors are down to 15th after a terrible 2020, while they are at risk of plunging even further. That’s eliminated Wednesday from the playoff chase, putting Garry Monk’s future in question. Our predictions point to more problems for the Owls.

Fears for the Owls

The hosts have dropped off from their automatic promotion challenge in December, finding themselves rooted in the bottom half this weekend. Sheffield Wednesday have won just one of their last 10 matches in the Championship (W1 D3 L6), losing the last two while conceding eight goals in those defeats.

Things could yet get worse for the hosts, who have a cloud hanging over them going into this clash. The Owls are in danger of punishment from the EFL, which could bring a huge points deduction that could push them into relegation danger.

Without home support backing them, Wednesday could also face problems with their home record. They’ve won only seven of 18 games here, with four of those coming against the current bottom five. Against the top half sides they have only two wins, which is a real concern.

Forest Boost?

The visitors are in need of a response after some mixed form, but they have lost just once in their last five Championship games. The visitors are also in solid shape on their travels. Nottingham Forest have only lost two of their last 12 away league matches (W5 D5). That’s left them with the third-best away record across the division.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday have the 18th-best home record, so we don’t see them claiming a result. Given that Forest have lost just three of their 19 trips this term, we are backing them to pull off a result. We are going with Forest Double Chance as our pick here. Given that Wednesday have lost four of their last six games, we’re going with a 1-0 away win as our correct score prediction.
