Sheffield Wednesday are the bookie’s joint-favourites to win the EFL Trophy due to their solid start to life back in League One, the top tier which a team can enter from.
The Owls have played four games in League One this season and earned 10 points in the process, drawing 0-0 away at Charlton Athletic on the opening day, before beating Doncaster Rovers and Rotherham United by 2-0 scorelines, as well as narrowly defeating Fleetwood Town 1-0 at Hillsborough. Darren Moore’s side are yet to concede a goal so far this season.
Wednesday have never won this trophy having predominantly spent time in the top two divisions of English football since the trophy’s inaugural season in 1983/84 and with a squad full of quality, the Owls will be expected to compete to win this tournament. Moore’s men have been placed in the same group as the likes of Harrogate Town, Mansfield Town and Newcastle United U21s.
