Sheffield Wednesday are playing at home against Sheffield United in a match of round 35 of Championship. The appointment of Steve Bruce affected the performance of The Owls positively, and now their fans dream for participation in the playoffs for promotion in the Premier League. New Tab Sheffield Wed are seven points behind the sixth position in the standings, but the fight will be fierce.
Sheffield United are still favourite for direct promotion in the Premier League. In the last round, The Blades won with 1-0 against West Bromwich and now are just five points from the first place. As guests Sheffield Utd won only two of the last six games in Championship, but and in a derby against their local rival this factor it’s not that important.
Sheffield Wednesday improved their performance, but it should be noted that Steve Bruce’s appointment came in a period of games against teams that are not in their best form. The Owls achieved three wins – against Ipswich (24), Swansea (13) and Brentford (15), and three draws versus Reading (21), Millwall (20) and Rotherham (22). On Monday they will play not only against their local rival but also against one of the most consistent teams in the Championship in the last two seasons. Sheffield United are in fantastic form with three wins without conceding a goal, and we think that they will win on Hillsborough.
