Tip Reasoning

  • Sunderland are averaging over two goals per game in home league fixtures
  • Sheffield Wednesday have scored in seven of their last eight away games
  • Five of the Owls’ last seven matches have included three or more goals

Sunderland stunning at home

After some miserable years, Sunderland fans finally have something to cheer about and come into this fixture having lost just once in eleven league outings on home soil this season.

They have won nine of those games at the Stadium of Light, but perhaps the form has tailed off a touch lately, with those dropped points coming against Charlton (1-0 defeat) and Oxford (1-1 draw) in their last five games there.

The Black Cats generally score plenty of goals on the North East though. They have netted at least twice in three of their last four and in seven of their eleven home matches overall, with six of those games including at least three goals.

Owls finding their wings under Darren Moore

Sheffield Wednesday endured a tough start to the season, but things have certainly picked up lately. Indeed, they are currently twelve games unbeaten in League One, although seven of those fixtures have been drawn.

Both teams have scored in 12 of their last 16 matches and in six of their last eight away from Hillsborough, with their form on the road among the very best in the division.

The Owls love finding the back of the net, failing to score in just one of their last 16 in the league and they are expected to ask some serious questions of a Black Cats defence who have been generally sturdy this campaign.

It is very hard to separate these two teams. Sunderland are exceptional at home, but Wednesday are going strong and have lost just twice on the road.

I predict there will be goals, so select both teams to score and three or more goals as my main pick, while predicting a 2-2 draw as a correct score.
