  • Sheffield Wednesday scored seven times in their final two league games
  • Lee Gregory has scored eight times in his last eight appearances

Ignore regular season meetings

Both regular season fixtures between Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday took place before the turn of the year and with much having changed since then, those meetings will hold little significance going into Friday’s game. Sunderland ran out 5-0 winners when these two met at the Stadium of Light in December, this was Wednesday’s first game back after a three-week Covid 19 enforced hiatus. Sunderland have since changed manager, with Alex Neil having taken over from the departed Lee Johnson, whilst Darren Moore clearly discovered his best side in the latter half of the season – no team in League One took more points from their final 20 matches of the season than Sheffield Wednesday.

Wednesday fancied to secure first leg advantage

Sheffield Wednesday really found their feet in the second half of the League One campaign. The Owls took 45 points from their last 20 league matches, averaging 2.25 PPG, which couldn’t be better by any other side in the division. Darren Moore’s side have lost one of their last 11 matches and finished the season scoring seven times in their final two games. Wednesday go into the first leg with a settled side and a pair of strikers in red-hot form, The Owls will be full of confidence and should be backed to take a lead with them back to Hillsborough.

Gregory can continue rich vein of form  

There are few strikers in better form than Sheffield Wednesday’s Lee Gregory. The former Stoke and Millwall man will be hoping he can help fire The Owls back to the championship at the first time of asking. Gregory has scored eight times in his last eight appearances, with four of those coming in the final two games of the season, he could hardly be in better form and can currently be backed at 2/1 to score anytime on Friday.

Sheffield Wednesday look to have strong credentials going into the play-offs and are fancied to get off to a winning start at Sunderland on Friday night. The Owls can currently be backed at a best priced 15/8 in the outright market for Friday’s game – a wager at those odds is the main recommendation for this clash on Tyneside. The correct score prediction for this one will for it to finish 2-1 to the visitors. Punters looking to have a wager on the goal scorer markets would be foolish to leave Wednesday’s Lee Gregory out of their staking plans. Gregory has scored four times in his last two appearances and already has a goal against Friday’s hosts to his name this season.
