The results have been erratic for Sheffield Wednesday, and they hardly ever win. Huddersfield had a disappointing finish to the previous season, and they have not been convincing during the pre-season.
My money is on a tie after the first ninety minutes because neither team is in good form.
There have been no victories for Sheffield Wednesday in 9 of their last 13 matches (all competitions)
- Huddersfield have won one, lost one, and drawn all three of Sheffield Wednesday’s home matches against them (all competitions)
- 18 of Huddersfield’s last 21 matches have ended in a loss for the Terriers (all competitions)
In 62 matchups between these two teams, Huddersfield leads Sheffield Wednesday by 21 points (26-21), with 15 draws.
The teams’ most recent encounter, which took place in the Championship the previous year, ended in a 1-1 draw. Wednesday’s scoring began with an effort from Josh Windass, and was later followed by an own goal from Callum Patterson.
Form of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club
After being demoted to the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday have had a pre-season that has been filled with both highs and lows.
Prior to the start of the 2021/22 season, the Owls’ preseason friendlies resulted in a win-loss split of three and three. A 3-1 defeat to Celtic was followed by victories over non-league opponents Alfreton (2-0) and Chester. Darren Moore’s team was the loser (1-0).
They suffered 2-0 defeats at the hands of Barnsley and West Brom before claiming a 2-1 victory over Port Vale of League Two in their final pre-season friendly match.
Wednesday were on top for the majority of the game and created several opportunities that were relatively clear cut. After 25 minutes, they took the lead thanks to a towering header that was scored by Dominic Iorfa. Before Tom Dele-Bashiru scored the game-winning goal with ten minutes left, Vale had scored an equalizer.
Moore will be eager to get off to a good start and put the dreadful finish to the 2020-21 season in the rearview mirror. The Owls ended the previous season with just three wins in their final 18 matches, which led to them finishing last in the Championship with 41 points.
The latest on injuries and team news for Sheffield Wednesday
As a result of a hamstring injury he sustained against West Brom, striker Josh Windass’s availability is in question.
After a strong preseason, winger Olamide Shodipo is going to be included in the starting lineup as a member of a front three.
After signing a season-long loan with the Owls, new goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell is getting ready to make his first appearance in a competitive game.
The first two games of Huddersfield’s preseason were successful, as the Terriers prevailed over Harrogate (1-0) and Southport (2-0). (2-0).
The team managed by Carlos Corberán was unable to capitalize on their previous success and ended their preseason with defeats against Norwich (2-0) and Fleetwood (1-0).
Despite having a significant lead after the first quarter of play, the Terriers ended up giving up two goals in that time frame. Lewis O’Brien’s late goal gave Huddersfield a glimmer of hope, and Jordan Rhodes came dangerously close to tying the game in the closing stages.
Due to this result, Huddersfield have now gone three of their last five matches away from home without claiming a victory.
The Terriers will want to get off to a strong start in their new campaign after finishing 20th in the Championship in the previous year. Huddersfield Football Club secured their position in the second tier of English football for the 2021/22 season by achieving a run of three victories in their final twenty league matches.
