Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday at 5/6 for both teams to score on Monday afternoon

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score at Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday

Odds: 5/6 @ Bet365

While Sunderland have shown some recent signs of life, former Wales boss Chris Coleman knows that if his Black Cats must pick up three more crucial points if they stand any chance of avoiding back to back relegations.

For Chris Coleman, after dropping out of the Premier League last season, the Black Cats now find themselves at the heart of a battle to secure their Championship status come the end of the season. With just seven games to go, Sunderland are now sat 23rd in the table and are now five points adrift of safety. In desperate need to pick up points, the Black Cats will be hoping to carry on their recent success from last weekend, picking up a surprise 4-1 win away at playoff hopefuls Derby, Sunderland also brought an end to their 10 match winless run. Coleman’s side will also be boosted by their recent success against the Owls, the North West club have only lost one of their last 13 league matches against Wednesday.

As for Sheffield Wednesday, after failing to make it to the Championship play-off final last season, the owls parted ways with Carlos Carvalhal and have now installed former Stuttgart boss Jos Luhukay to help finally lead them to the Premier League. However, Wednesday have been unable to replicate their previous form and now look to finish the season outside the top half of the table. Sat down in 17th position, while the Owls are nine points adrift of 12th spot, Luhukay’s side have shown some recent good form, picking up their own 4-1 win against Preston on Friday, Wednesday are now unbeaten in their last three and will be hoping Atdhe Nuhiu can carry on his impressive form away from home. The forward now has three goals in his last four away league games for the Owls, as many as he netted in his previous 42.
