Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland Match Preview & Best Odds


Sheffield Wednesday remain rooted firmly to the foot of the Championship table after eight rounds of fixtures and they face a tough assignment on Friday evening when they entertain Sunderland at Hillsborough.

Darren Moore’s departure from Hillsborough resulted in some fall-out but the Owls looked to be in a good place after appointing Xisco as their new manager and securing promotion into the Championship. Nevertheless, life in the second tier has been no picnic for the South Yorkshire outfit and after eight rounds of fixtures they sit firmly at the bottom of the division with six defeats and two draws along the way. The visit of Sunderland presents the Owls with a chance to move up the the giddy heights of 22nd in the table on Friday evening although another defeat would place them in even greater danger at this early stage of the campaign.

Sunderland head down to South Yorkshire looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season, this coming against Cardiff City last time out. The loss to the Bluebirds ended an excellent five-game winning run and while the Black Cats can be happy enough with their current position of fifth in the table, they are losing ground to the top-two with eight points separating them from second-placed Ipswich Town and leaders Leicester City.

With the Owls desperately looking for their first victory of the campaign, the likelihood is that they will be going all-out for three points in front of their own home fans. This will play into the hands of Sunderland however and we expect the visitors to exploit the spaces and claim the three points by being ruthless in the final third.
