The Owls go into the clash on the south coast 17 places and 20 points behind their hosts, but the Cherries are currently suffering from a dire slump in form.

Jason Tindall’s men have lost their last three matches in the Championship, and haven’t won a league game since they beat Stoke City a month ago.

By contrast, Wednesday have won three of their last four, and took all three points against Preston North End at the weekend.

And despite the disparity between themselves and Bournemouth in the league standings, Prutton is backing the Owls to pick up another valuable win tonight.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: “It's all going wrong for Bournemouth at the moment.

"Three defeats on the spin, and they were absolutely blown away by Reading on Friday night. The Royals just looked more of a team than the Cherries.

“Sheffield Wednesday are still without a manager, but are doing all they can in their battle to stay up.

"They saw off Preston on Saturday, and I fancy them to sneak past Bournemouth on Tuesday.”

Prutton has predicted a 1-0 win for Wednesday.

The Owls took all three points last time the two sides faced each other earlier this season.

Barry Bannan scored the vital goal in a 1-0 victory that ended the Cherries’ unbeaten start to the campaign.

The Scot struck from the penalty spot after Steve Cook was dismissed for bringing down Josh Windass in the area.
