Sheffield Wednesday 23/20 to beat Nottingham Forest in Tuesday’s Championship clash

Competition: Championship

Market: Sheffield Wednesday win

Odds: 23/20 @ Bet 365

Two sides who have yet to give up on their dream for a top six finish, Sheffield Wednesday will host Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Steve Bruce may have seen his side suffer a 3-1 loss at home to Aston Villa last week and simultaneously suffer their first loss under the former Hull City boss, Sheffield Wednesday have plenty to be happy about. Still dreaming of a late playoff push, a huge part of the Owls’ success since Bruce appointment has been their performances at Hillsborough. Despite their loss against high-flying Villa last time out, Wednesday are unbeaten in their other 10 appearances in front of their own supporters, a run that stems all the way back to the 27th of November. One man to watch in midweek will be leading goalscorer, Steven Fletcher. The 32-year-old has five in his last seven and also found the net against Forest in the reverse fixture.

As for the visitors, despite turning to former Ireland boss Martin O’Neil back in January, Nottingham Forest have still struggled with their consistency. Slipping to a 2-1 loss away at relegation scrappers Rotherham last week, the Reds have recorded just one victory in their last four and their performances away from the City Ground are becoming a huge concern. Still yet to pick up an away victory in 2019, O’Neil’s men have failed to win any of their last 13 Championship matches on the road, a run that stems back to the end of November. Dropping points away at every team currently sat in the drop zone, we’re backing another tricky night on the road for Forest.
