Match Preview

Two consecutive 1-0 home victories has Sheffield Wednesday hunting a third Championship home win in a row for the first time since April 2017. Those two wins also continued a trend that has seen Wednesday fail to score more than one goal in each of their last five league games held here (W3, D1, L1).
The hosts’ last six Championship home victories have now come ‘to nil’, with Wednesday winning at half-time in three of those wins, and five featuring under 2.5 goals. In fact their last four H2H victories here also came ‘to nil’ – three by at least a two-goal margin.
Leeds United’s 1-1 draw at Preston midweek was their sixth consecutive match where they failed to score more than one goal (W2, D2, L2), and their third away game in a row without a win (D1, L2). However the visitors travel here with the division’s best defence, conceding an average of just 0.62 goals per fixture.
They’ve also scored more goals away (12) than at home this league campaign (five), with 75% of those away strikes coming after half-time. Although despite that, three of Leeds’ four away wins this Championship season saw them lead at the break (W4, D1, L2).
Players to watch: Wednesday’s top league scorer, Steven Fletcher (five goals), has been his side’s last scorer in four of the five Championship games he’s found the net.
Although on an eight-game goal drought in the league, Patrick Bamford’s (LUFC) four Championship goals this term have all been scored in away victories (W3).
Stat attack: Wednesday are yet to concede in the opening 30 minutes at home this league campaign.
Leeds are yet to concede in both halves this Championship season.
Six of the last eight H2Hs finished with under 2.5 goals – four were goalless at half-time.
