Sheffield Wednesday looked dead and buried just a few weeks ago but two wins in their last three league matches have been them renewed hope of retaining their Championship status. Bristol City, meanwhile, saw their faint playoff hopes go up in smoke last time out as they lost at home to QPR.

  • HOME: 31/20 (2.55) – 39.2%
  • DRAW: 21/10 (3.10) – 32.3%
  • AWAY: 15/8 (2.88) – 34.8%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Sheff Wed vs Bristol City odds suggest that a home win is the most likely result on Saturday afternoon, however, the difference between all three results is minimal.

If this match had been played a month ago, then we project that Bristol City would have been priced as the favourites, however, things change very quickly in football and Sheffield Wednesday now have something money can't buy – momentum. Can it lead them to another big victory on Saturday afternoon?

Bristol City haven't lost to Sheffield Wednesday since June 2020 which could be a psychological factor coming into the match. In their last three H2Hs, Sheffield Wednesday have only managed to score one goal against Bristol City, something they will certainly need to improve on if they are to get a positive result this weekend.

Team news and form guide

Sheffield Wednesday: Desperate for anything

Bristol City: Nothing to play for

Bristol City currently occupy 12th position in the Championship which at this stage of the season effectively means they have very little to play for. Could a lack of motivation be their undoing on Saturday? They'll go into the match without Atkinson and Benarous.

Predicted Lineup: O'Leary, McCrorie, Vyner, Dickie, Roberts, Williams, James, Bell, Knight, Mehmeti, Wells

Anthony Musaba hasn't always been the leading man for Sheffield Wednesday but after his performance last weekend, perhaps they need to roll with the Dutchman until the end of the season.

Musaba to repeat last week's heroics?

Musaba took full advantage of his start last weekend by playing a huge part in Sheffield Wednesday's away win at Millwall. He assisted Ugbo for the opener on the half-hour mark before scoring the second ten minutes later. He is now Sheffield Wednesday's leading goalscorer this season and a similar performance on Saturday could earn his side another valuable three points.
