Two sides desperately in need of a win meet in the EFL Championship this weekend as Sheffield Wednesday face Middlesbrough at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday currently sit 23rd in the EFL Championship with one draw and five losses from six games so far.
The Owls have had a tough integration period back into the Championship having really struggled following promotion amidst some turbulent circumstances.
Wednesday are coming into this game amidst a really poor run of form having drawn one and lost four of their last five games, the most recent of which was a 0-1 loss to Ipswich Town last weekend.
The Owls delivered a disappointing performance against Ipswich having failed to register a single shot on target, and despite the closeness of the scoreline they were fairly soundly beaten.
They've been really poor in front of goal in general having scored just one goal in their last four matches, with their record if four goals in six games the joint-worse scoring rate in the league.
They've been weak in front of their own fans so far having lost all of their three home games in the league so far.
At present it's hard to see Sheffield Wednesday winning a game but they're playing the only side below them in the league table here and if they cannot win a home game against the side rooted to the foot of the table there is likely little hope for them.
Middlesbrough currently sit 24th in the EFL Championship with one draw and five losses from their first six games of the season.
Boro have had an utterly abysmal start to the league campaign, to most people's surprise, have failed to build on an impressive season last time out.
They're coming into this game having lost each of their last three matches by a combined scoreline of 8-3.
Their most recent outing saw them beaten 2-1 by Blackburn Rovers in a game that could have seen them battered by four or five goals had Blackburn been more ruthless in their finishing.
It's been a disastrous few weeks for Middlesbrough and manager Michael Carrick is now under immense pressure from the fans following such a poor start.
Their form away from home has been unsurprisingly poor with Boro having lost all three of their games on the road by a combined scoreline of 9-3.
Similar to their opponents, it's hard to see where a win for Middlesbrough is going to come from so whether or not these two sides will cancel each other out remains to be seen.
For our Sheffield Wednesday vs. Middlesbrough prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
