Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City

, KO: 20:00 Feb 9, 2024, Hillsborough
Birmingham City

Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City square off in a Friday night Championship fixture with both teams looking to snap out of a rough patch. Neither side has been at their best lately and they look set to cancel each other out for a draw.

Sheffield Wednesday are coming off a 4-1 defeat to Coventry in an FA Cup fourth round replay on Tuesday. They went into the break level after Bailey-Tye Cadamarteri had cancelled out an early opener from the hosts but ultimately capitulated in the second half.

That result is consistent with Sheffield Wednesday’s recent form as they are winless in their last six matches across all competitions. Danny Rohl’s men were beaten 4-0 by Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture and they remain mired in the relegation zone, seven points from safety.

A bit of good news for Sheffield Wednesday is that they have been on the road lately and return to Hillsborough which has tasted just one defeat in their last five matches. The last two fixtures in that run have ended in draws, including a 0-0 scoreline with Watford in their previous Championship home outing.

Birmingham City are also coming off a defeat as they were beaten 1-0 by West Brom in their previous Championship fixture. They looked to be headed for a drab goalless draw before a loss of concentration at the back allowed the Baggies nick the winner.

Tony Mowbray’s men are also going through a rough patch having picked up just two wins from their last 11 matches across all competitions. The Blues are also in relegation danger, sitting just four points above the bottom three.

Birmingham City have also found things difficult on their travels, although they are unbeaten in three of their last five Championship away fixtures. Among their results in that run is a 3-3 draw at Plymouth Argyle.

Players to watch

Bailey-Tye Cadamarteri was on target on Tuesday and could be worth keeping an eye on for Sheffield Wednesday. He is likely to feature in attack and is priced at 13/5 by Unibet to get in the score sheet once again.
