How can I watch Nottingham Forest v Sheffield Wednesday? Who is the ref? The latest odds

Bottom club Sheffield Wednesday come up against fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest in an early-season ‘six-pointer’ on Tuesday evening.

Monday, 14th December 2020, 1:55 pm

The Owls, who haven’t won for eight games and are yet to register a victory under recently-appointed Tony Pulis, had an afternoon to forget on Saturday when they were beaten 2-1 by South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at Hillsborough and lost key man Dominic Iorfa for the season after he ruptured an achilles tendon.

However, they will come up against a Forest side also on a wretched run which has left them fourth-bottom in the Sky Bet Championship – just four points ahead of Wednesday.
