Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Carlos Carvalhal is sweating on the fitness of a number of key players, including Fernando Forestieri and Ross Wallace. Kieran Lee and Sam Hutchinson are both expected to miss the match, however Vincent Sasso returns from his three-match ban.


Newcastle Team News

Rafa Benitez will be missing Vurnon Anita and DeAndre Yedlin for the match. Rolando Aarons is back in training, but he’s unlikely to feature again this season as Benitez prefers not to risk a further setback.


Reason for Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Bets

Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Newcastle is by far the Championship’s standout game. While the home side are looking to secure their place in the top six, their opponents are battling with Brighton for the league title.

Wednesday have struggled for points of late and their drop in form has seen previous play-off outsiders catch them up. They’re now facing a real battle to achieve their ambition of a top-six finish.

Despite their impressive home record, they’ve won just one of their last four matches at Hillsborough, losing two of those. Injuries to key players have played their part in that, but they could welcome back two important players in Fernando Forestieri and Ross Wallace for the match with Newcastle.

Newcastle are glad to have their star striker back too, with Dwight Gayle scoring on his return to the starting 11 last week against Wigan. He’s still on the hunt for the Golden Boot, just behind Leeds’ Chris Wood.

Whilst the Magpies are almost guaranteed an automatic promotion place, they remain neck and neck with Brighton in the race for the title. The season’s slog seems to be taking its toll on the players though, as they struggle to find the winning consistency they had at the start of the season.

Nevertheless, they’ve managed to nick some important wins recently, including away victories over Brighton and Huddersfield. For that reason, back them to get their revenge on the Owls – an away win can be found at 10/7 with 888sport. Benitez’s side have drawn their last two away matches 0-0, but they should just edge past a Wednesday side who haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight matches. Back a 1-0 Newcastle win at 15/2 with Bet365.
