Tip Reasoning

  • Sheffield Wednesday have lost once at home in 2022
  • The Owls had the best home record in the League One regular season
  • Sunderland won just three of their 11 away matches in 2022

Owls fancied to overhaul deficit

Sam Hutchinson’s defensive lapse in the first leg means Sheffield Wednesday go into Monday’s game with a one-goal deficit to overturn. The Owls look more than capable of doing just that and with their impeccable home record in the regular season to lean on, their fans must be optimistic of making Wembley. Darren Moore’s side have lost once at Hillsborough in 2022 and they ended the league season with a 4-1 home win against Portsmouth which secured the best home record in League One.

Black Cats struggled on the road in 2022

Sunderland hold a slender lead heading to Yorkshire but maintaining that advantage will be incredibly difficult. Sunderland have only won three of the 11 away matches they have played in 2022 and will have a lively home crowd to contend with on Monday. The Black Cats have plenty of scars from the play-offs down the years and their fans will no doubt be on edge.

Gregory can fire Owls to Wembley

Lee Gregory fed of scraps on Monday and can expect much more goal-mouth action in the second leg. The former Stoke and Millwall man finished the campaign scoring eight times in the final eight regular season matches. If Sheffield Wednesday are to overcome the one-goal deficit and make the final, they are likely to rely on Gregory to fire them to Wembley. The Owls frontman can be backed at 15/8 to score anytime on Monday and is fancied to do just that.

With a packed Hillsborough behind them I fully expect Wednesday to win the second leg and make the Wembley final, where they will face either MK Dons or Wycombe. Sheffield Wednesday to win in 90 minutes is the main selection for Monday’s game and it ranks as a very confident bet. Sheffield Wednesday beat Sunderland 3-0 in the league fixture at Hillsborough and there is every chance they will keep another clean sheet in the second leg – 2-0 to the hosts is the correct score prediction here, a score line which will be enough for The Owls progress. Complete you assault on Monday’s game by backing Lee Gregory to score anytime.
