Sheffield Wednesday have struggled at times on the road this season

The fact has not been lost on those outside the club and EFL pundit Jobi McAnuff believes a continuation of their home form and an improvement away from Hillsborough can see Wednesday solidify that play-off place.

“Their home form has been absolutely fantastic all season and I think that’s going to be absolutely huge for them between now and the end of the season,” the former Reading and Crystal Palace winger told Sky Sports EFL Podcast.

“[It’s about] making sure they win those games and then being able to focus on some tricky away games which they have got coming up.

“So, listen, they’ve got to go to Bolton, MK Dons and Wycombe, so three tough away games and I feel in terms of them for the play-offs it’s all going to come down to how they fare [at home] and maybe being a little bit better away than they have been over the course of the season.”
