Win for Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday are back to winning ways after the success over Accrington, who are certainly not the biggest challenge for the team in the forthcoming weeks. Still, this should provide some relief for a team who had also managed to claim top spot as a result. Both positives are likely to enhance Wednesday quite significantly coming into the game. Burton Albion remain in relegation fear with the team losing last weekend. This Burton vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction would opt for a consecutive victory for Wednesday.

Both teams to score – yes

The defence of Sheffield Wednesday has been taken for a ride in recent weeks but the team did manage a clean sheet last weekend. Accrington’s has barely dented the opposition over the last few weeks and it was not a surprise that Wednesday picked up a clean sheet. However, Burton will be a big threat in this regard. After coming up with 11 goals in the last six games, the Burton vs Sheffield Wednesday betting tips expect a lot of problems for Wednesday’s defence against the home team.

Burton vs Sheffield Wednesday: Team News, Line-Ups, & Form Analysis

Burton:

Burton Albion’s three-game winning sequence has paved way for a close defeat against Charlton but the team remain a handful of points away from the relegation zone. Burton also have a game in hand over their relegation rivals. As a result, manager Dino Maamria is likely to be relaxed about the situation.

Predicted Line-Up:

Craig MacGillivray, Conor Shaughnessy, Sam Hughes, Jasper Moon, John Brayford, Latty-Fairweather, Adedeji Oshilaja, Joe Powell, Josh Walker, Mark Helm, Dale Taylor

Sheffield Wednesday:

Sheffield Wednesday were relieved to pick up a first victory in seven matches, as they beat Accrington by a comfortable margin. However, things are still not perfect for Wednesday who are on the road in three out of the next four league encounters. There could be no significant changes to the Burton vs Sheffield Wednesday lineups given that Ben Heneghan, George Byers, Josh Windass, Callum Paterson, and Michael Ihiekwe remain on the sidelines.

Predicted Line-Up:

Cameron Dawson, Liam Palmer, Aden Flint, Akin Famewo, Dennis Adeniran, Marvin Johnson, Will Vaulks, Reece James, Barry Bannan, Lee Gregory, Mallik Wilks

Player to Watch: Dale Taylor

Dale Taylor has been enjoying decent form coming into the game. The 19-year-old has been able to come up with four goals in his last six appearances for Burton Albion. In fact, in the last 10 matches, Taylor has come up with match-winning performances in the games against Bristol and Port Vale. Sheffield Wednesday’s mediocre defence is likely to be exposed by the youngster once again.

Starting Line-Ups:

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
