High-flying Swansea City will look to build on their morale-boosting win over promotion rivals Norwich City last week, when they travel to Yorkshire to face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday.
Wednesday’s win on Tuesday over Wycombe Wanderers saw them move out of the relegation zone for the first time this season. After having their initial 12-point deduction reduced to just six, the win over the league’s bottom club moved them level on points with Derby County and Birmingham City, but their 4-1 defeat to Millwall last week shows the volatility of their results of late.
The Owls are also very low scorers, netting just 21 in 28 league games so far, and when you put a rather feeble attack up against the best defence in the league, struggles may arise. Swansea have conceded just 15 goals this season, keeping an incredible 15 clean sheets in their 27 matches in the Championship. The Welsh side moved to within two points of Norwich after their win over the Canaries last week, while still having a game in hand.
Swansea have won four on the spin away from home and we are backing them to make it five at Hillsborough, while also recording another successful shutout. Swansea win to nil is 9/4 with Sky Bet.
