SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY v MIDDLESBROUGH 12.45, Hillsborough

A nervous Hillsborough awaits as Wednesday go into this game needing a win to secure safety. Winless in four with just two goals scored, Dave Jones will be determined for his side to use home advantage against a side short on confidence and with nothing to play for.

The season has been ultimately disappointing for Tony Mowbray; much like last season a solid start and the look of a side ready to challenge for promotion eventually fizzling out. With large financial losses announced, it remains to be seen whether they can be ready for another go next season.

 

What the game could mean: Even a draw would put Wednesday at risk of the drop, should Peterborough and Barnsley win. A Barnsley win and Peterborough draw would send Wednesday down should they lose.

Possible line-ups:

Wednesday – Kirkland, Buxton, Llera, Gardner, Helan, McCabe, Lee, Olofinjana, Pugh, Lita, Howard

Middlesbrough – Steele, Hoyte, Williams, Bikey, Reach, Leadbitter, Haroun, Halliday, Smallwood, Emnes, McDonald

Recent form: Wednesday – WWLDDL; Middlesbrough – DLLWLD

Prediction: 2-1
