Claude Dielna’s last-gasp goal sealed an impressive victory for Sheffield Wednesday at play-off chasing Blackburn last weekend, a result that lifted the Owls into the top half of the Championship table and bookies fancy Stuart Gray’s men to strengthen their position by making it three wins on the bounce as they entertain Wolves.
Stan James rate Wednesday 13/10 favourites to win at Hillsborough, and it’s 12/5 with bet365 to finish all square, a wager that’s set to be popular amongst neutrals given the sides are just a place and a point apart.
Ladbrokes mark 7/2 against a score draw, a 1-1 scoreline is available at 13/2 via BetVictor and for tentative home supporters, the Owls are a 4/6 chance in Skybet’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market, however, Wanderers have lost their last five so the form book points to a home triumph. Betway make them 17/2 to register a third consecutive 2-1 success, they’re 9/2 (bet365) to again sneak it despite going in on level terms at the interval. Confident Wednesday fans meanwhile, can head to BetVictor’s handicaps to back the Owls, starting a goal behind, at 15/4.
In League One, BetVictor chalk Sheffield United up at 11/8 to follow last week’s FA Cup triumph by winning at Fleetwood (2/1, William Hill). Skybet go 12/5 about the draw but as the Cod Army have lost five of their last seven, the Blades will be confident. BetVictor quote odds of 7/1 for Nigel Clough’s side to grab the only goal, any success by a solitary strike is a 3/1 shot at Paddy Power and also 3/1, this time with William Hill, is a United lead at the end of each half.
Barnsley travel to Walsall looking to arrest a run of four winless matches and they’re 13/5 (Stan James) to do just that while Doncaster, who have lost just one of their last six league matches, are 8/11 (Paddy Power) to continue in that vein as they welcome Gillingham to the Keepmoat Stadium.
Finally, bet365 rate Chesterfield at 11/10 to get the better of Bradford.
