Sheffield Wed take on the visitors Burton at “Hillsborough” in the gameweek 26 of the English Championship. The match will be played in Sheffield on Monday, January 1st.
Sheffield Wed have shown moderate results at the home ground. The club has many problems as it has managed to deserve only four victories and three draws in 12 encounters played in face of its supporters. The side’s defense looks solid enough, having scored 18 goals already while its defense leaves much to be desired, having conceded 15 goals so far. “The Owls” demonstrated awful football in the latest fights conducted at “Hillsborough”, having lost to Middlesbrough 1:2, Wolves 0:1 and got single draw against Hull City with 2:2 scoreline. It is quite clear that Sheffield Wed are not in a favourable situation now.

Burton didn’t show that performance in away clashes that they would like to. The club has failed five out of 12 battles played on the road while managed to earn only three triumphs in them. The team’s offense demonstrates horrible play, being now in a poor competitive form. In general “Brewers” scored just six goals. However, the side’s defense doesn’t impress as well, having conceded 16 goals. Still, it should be noted that Burton have taken on the pace recently, having broken Reading 2:1 and Bolton 1:0, but lost 0:1 to Derby County in the latest away games.
It is hard to pick up the favourite in this pair as the rivals maintain nearly the same football level. The teams’ most recent head-to-head ended with 1:1 draw. Taking into consideration the home field factor, the upcoming hosts will face a great opportunity to gain points in the first day of a new year of 2018.
Prediction for the match: Sheffield Wed to win.
