Competition: League One
Market: Sheffield Wednesday win
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
Smelling a golden chance on Tuesday night, Sheffield Wednesday will welcome Burton to Hillsborough when the midweek League One fixtures get underway.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another professional display over the weekend, Sheffield Wednesday suddenly find themselves sat in pole position to claim a play-off spot this season. With their sights firmly set on securing an immediate Championship return, Darren Moore’s men were last seen claiming a deserved 2-0 win against Charlton. Enjoying what has been a real purple patch, the former Doncaster boss has seen his side win six of their last seven outings, a run that stems back to January 22nd. Looking to keep up their recent bounce at Hillsborough on Tuesday night, it should be noted that the Owls have continued to shine on home soil. Including an eye-catching 1-0 win against promotion contenders Wigan, Sheffield Wednesday have won five of their previous six contests in front of their own fans.
As for the visitors, while Sheffield Wednesday might be battling it out in the play-off chase, Burton have the feel of a side seeking some stability. Putting in another downbeat display over the weekend and suffering a 2-0 defeat at home against Shrewsbury, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men have managed to win just one of their last seven matchups across all formats. Almost sat in League One limbo, the former Chelsea icon will know that his side face a huge task on Tuesday night. Gaining a reputation for their issues on the road, it should be noted that they were hit with a 2-0 loss when they faced off against the Owls earlier in the season. With the midweek hosts looking to widen their buffer in the play-off spots here, we’re backing a home victory at Hillsborough.
