      Tip Reasoning

      • 12 of Sheffield Wednesday’s 15 home games this term have produced under 2.5 goals, including each of their last six.
      • Rotherham’s last four league matches have also generated under 2.5 goals.
      • Sheffield Wednesday have lost four games on the spin but won five in a row at Hillsborough prior to their 0-1 defeat against Birmingham last week.

      Goals at a premium in South Yorkshire derby

      Darren Moore steps into the Hillsborough hotseat for his first game in charge of Sheffield Wednesday and we’re anticipating a gritty, low scoring South Yorkshire derby as the Owls entertain Rotherham United.

      Both of these sides are racking up lengthy losing runs with Wednesday suffering four defeats on the bounce compared to Rotherham’s five and this week’s clash really is a must win affair if either are to stay in touch of safety.

      The Owls are six points adrift and a point worse off than their opponents, but they’re given the edge in this one on account of winning four on the bounce at Hillsborough prior to their 0-1 reverse against Birmingham here just over a week ago.

      The impact of a new manager also can’t be underestimated which is why we’re forecasting a 1-0 correct score, although under 2.5 goals is our main prediction for this midweek clash.

      That’s been the outcome in 12 of Wednesday’s 15 home starts this term including their last six, while the Millers last four Championship matches have also seen less than three goals scored.
