Sheffield Wed vs Huddersfield by Shibby
Skybet Championship tonight for me, a game that will be played at Hillsborough, Sheffield. The game will kick off at 19:45 and will be between 4th placed Sheffield Wednesday and 5th placed Huddersfield Town.
This is a play off semi final second leg game, the winner of this game will go through to the play off final at Wembley to face Reading who have just beaten promotion favourites Fulham 1-0 (2-1 over 2 legs). I think that watching the game tonight Sheffield Wednesday will fancy their chances of finally getting back to the Premier League. I know Reading did the job and beat Fulham over 2 legs, however, Fulham were the best team in the play off places and they dominated the game! A penalty for Reading was enough to see them through. Fulham threw everything at Reading, however, goalkeeper Al Habsi was in fine form and kept a very attacking Fulham side at bay.
I also watched the game on Sunday between Wednesday and Huddersfield, I think the way that Huddersfield approached the game was good, they attacked Wednesday from the start and were certainly looking to take advantage of being on home turf. However, as bad as Wednesday were, they didn't concede a goal and they now have home advantage! The Wednesday faithful will no doubt be loud tomorrow night as I expect a huge crowd to help the Owls try and reach the play off final.
Wednesday have a good record vs Town too, they haven't lost to Huddersfield since 2013! Since then, Wednesday have won 5 and drawn 2. I think that Wednesday have a great squad of players, I just think that Carvalhal needs to pick a strong squad tomorrow and I think they will attack Huddersfield from the start!
I don't think that there will be too many changes from either side, however, I think with Wednesday having the home advantage they will take the game to Huddersfield, I think they will get the win within 90 minutes although it won't be easy. This will then see them progress to the final vs Reading who I'm sure they will fancy their chances against in 90 minutes!
Therefore, I'll be backing a Wednesday win here tonight at a price of 2.25 with BetVictor, this bet is very well priced. Good luck all.
