Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County Preview, Championship, Sunday 6th December 2015

Sheffield Wednesday head into this game having had a good season so far and currently occupy 7th position in the championship league table on 28pts having won seven, drawn seven and lost four of their opening eighteen matches played.

But the hosts have had a small dip in form recently having managed to win just two of their last five league matches played and face a tough test against high flying Derby County on Sunday afternoon.

Derby County head into the game currently occupying 3rd position in the league table on 36pts having won ten, drawn six and lost just two of their opening eighteen matches played.

The visitors are in great form recently having won four of their last five league matches played and with an excellent 2-0 away win away against Hull City last time out, both the fans and the players will be confident of returning home with the 3pts from this one.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

The hosts will be without defender Tom Lees for this game as he picked up a hamstring injury in the midweek defeat in the Capital One Cup against Stoke City. Gleen Loovens, Michael Turner and Vincent Sasso are also absent due to respective injury related problems and miss out.

Derby County Team News:

The visitors have almost a full squad available for this game but will be without teenage wonderkid Max Lowe who is still lacking match fitness having recently returned back to the squad after injury. Bradley Johnson is available again having served his suspension and looks likely to go straight back into the starting lineup in place of Jeff Hendrick who deputised for him in last Friday’s victory away against Hull City.

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday’s lunch time game from Hillsborough stadium will become the 79th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Sheffield Wednesday have won 23 times with 17 of those having came with home advantage where as Derby County have managed 35 victories, with 11 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows Derby County with a clear advantage having won three times, compared to Sheffield Wednesday having won none and the remaining two matches having finished all square.

104 of those Goals have came in the 39 previous matches played at Hillsborough Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.67.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored and betting markets like Both Teams to Score and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 look the best options for this one.

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Sheffield Wednesday have struggled in recent weeks, but their home form this season is not bad at all and they will certainly make it very difficult for Derby County come Sunday afternoon.

Derby County have won four of their last five league matches played and with their comfortable 2-0 victory away against Hull City in their last league game, they do look very good to gain promotion this season if they can continue to keep playing the way they have been.

Two draws in the previous five matches played between the two clubs over recent season’s so this game could easily finish up all square in my opinion and is certainly worth getting something on as your main cover bet as I can see either a 1-1 or 2-2 score-line if Sheffield Wednesday continue their excellent home form they have shown this season.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for this match to see a Total of 2 or 3 Goals Scored as this does look good value in a game where the average goals per game statistics are expecting to see at least a couple of goals scored.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri to scored the first goal of the game as I am expecting the hosts to start this match the better in front of their home fans.
