Sheffield Wednesday Are The Value For Play Off Clash At Huddersfield

Huddersfield take on Sheffield Wednesday in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at midday on Sunday and it is the visitors who are good value to get something out of this trip to the John Smith's Stadium...

  • Huddersfield have lost 7 of their 10 meetings with top-six teams this season, failing to score in 5 in the process
  • Huddersfield haven't appeared in the top-flight since 1972
  • Fernando Forestieri has scored in his last 3 appearances against Huddersfield

Huddersfield Stats | Sheffield Wednesday Stats

Recent Form

Wednesday are making their second successive appearance in the play-offs after losing to Hull in last year's final and they ended this campaign in great form, winning six of their final seven games to finish in fourth place in the league table.

In contrast, Huddersfield limped over the line to finish in fifth place as they lost six of their final ten games (won three, drew one) and they make very little appeal at 6/4 in the match betting this weekend.

The Terriers haven't won any of their past seven matches against Wednesday (drawn two, lost five) since 2013 and we don't see Carlos Carvalhal's men losing on Sunday, with Bet Victor going 5/4 about the Wednesday win with 'draw no bet'.

Lack of Goals

Furthermore, Wednesday haven't conceded a single goal in their past six matches at Huddersfield and the away win to nil can be backed at 11/4 (Paddy Power), which could prove interesting as Huddersfield have gone 239 minutes without scoring a goal.

David Wagner's men were the lowest scorers in the top-eight of the Championship (56 goals) and it must be a concern that Nakhi Wells has managed just one goal in his last fifteen appearances ahead of this clash with Wednesday, who conceded just 45 league goals last term - only Newcastle and Brighton conceded less.

Forestieri To Strike

The Owls have only lost two of their last nine away from home (won five, drawn two) and they will be looking to Fernando Forestieri to make the difference on Sunday.

Forestieri has scored in each of his last three appearances against Huddersfield and he is 11/2 to be first goalscorer (Bet 365).
