Huddersfield v Sheffield Wednesday Past Meetings

Wednesday hold the upper hand in this fixture – unbeaten in the last seven clashes and winning the last four, including both matches this season.

Daniel Pudil and Fernando Forestieri both netted in the victory at Hillsborough in January, three months after Forestieri’s penalty had won them the derby clash at Huddersfield.

Indeed, the Sheffield side are unbeaten in their last five visits to the stadium and winning four of those clashes.


Huddersfield v Sheffield Wednesday Stats

Huddersfield’s season spluttered in the run-in, collecting only ten points from their final ten league matches – suffering six defeats in the process.

Contrast that form to Wednesday’s, who won six games in succession before a final day defeat to Fulham, who are involved in the other playoff semi-final.

Remarkably, not only did both these clubs finish on the same number of points (81) but also had the same breakdown between points won at home and away (47 and 34, respectively) although Wednesday’s goal difference was 17 better than Town’s.


Huddersfield v Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Huddersfield will be without suspended goalkeeper Danny Ward along with Kasey Palmer (Achilles tendon), Jon Gorenc-Stankovic (knee) and Elias Kachunga (calf).

The Owls have a fully fit squad to choose from.


Reason for Huddersfield v Sheffield Wednesday Bets

According to form and the recent meetings between these sides, it’s hard to look beyond Sheffield Wednesday as a winner.

Town set a new record of one-goal victories in the Championship and were in the thick of the automatic promotion race for much of the season, but then totally fell away and finished 5th.

Momentum is key in the playoffs – Wednesday have it and Huddersfield don’t, while Carlos Carvahal’s side’s record against the top sides in the division is impressive, not only did they do the double over Town but they managed the feat against league winners Newcastle.

The Owls also have the experience of last year’s playoffs – defeating Brighton in the semi-final before losing to Hull – which again should stand them in good stead against a club, and group of players, who are largely inexperienced at this stage of the season.

Steven Fletcher recently went on a goalscoring run of four goals in four games, helping Wednesday to vital wins over Rotherham, Newcastle and Derby along the way.

The Scot has ten goals for the campaign after a slow start and is likely to partner Gary Hooper up front, with odds of 14/5 for him to find the net particularly generous.
