Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday

, KO: 12:30 May 4, 2024, Stadium of Light
Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to confirm their Championship survival as they travel to Sunderland in the season finale. Sheffield have shown some good form in recent weeks and with Sunderland looking out of sorts, they can hold out for a draw at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland are safe for the season as they are 15th on the standings, well clear of the relegation zone. However, they appear to be ending their campaign with a whimper having picked up just two wins in their last 14 matches.

Things have been particularly poor for Sunderland in recent weeks having lost their last two matches. They head into Saturday’s clash off the back of successive 1-0 defeats to Millwall and Watford.

The defeat to Millwall highlights a poor home record for Sunderland, who have found things difficult in front of their fans. Mike Dodds’ men are winless in their last six matches at home, suffering four defeats in that run.

In contrast to Sunderland’s recent struggles, Sheffield Wednesday appear to have picked up their form at the right time. They are unbeaten in their last five matches, claiming three wins in that run.

Manager Danny Rohl will feel Sheffield Wednesday’s recent form should be enough to secure survival, although they need a point on Saturday to be absolutely certain. Their 3-0 victory over West Brom last time out in the Championship will give them confidence heading to the Stadium of Light.

Sheffield Wednesday have also impressed on their recent travels, winning four of their last six away matches. They triumphed 3-1 at Blackburn Rovers in their previous fixture on the road.
