            Peterborough vs. Sheffield Wednesday Prediction, Tips & Stats

            The League One play-offs get underway this weekend as Peterborough United host Sheffield Wednesday.

            Peterborough ended their League One campaign in 6th place with seventy-seven points.

            The Posh wormed their way into the top six on the final day of the season in dramatic fashion as they entered the day needing to claim a tough three points away at Barnsley while hoping this week's opponents would do them a favour by beating Derby County.

            As it happened the footballing gods were on their side as they ran out 2-0 winners at Oakwell while Derby were beaten at Hillsborough.

            As you can imagine the results were met with election from those amongst the Peterborough ranks and they now enter this game with momentum well on their side after such a euphoric day last weekend.

            Their form in general has been up and down of late having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches but coming off a win away at the league's 4th placed team could signify the beginning of an uptick in that regard.

            Their form at home has been fairly solid having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games on home soil with their last defeat a 0-3 hammering by Ipswich Town.

            All in all, Peterborough are a dark horse for the play-offs as their inconsistency means it's tough to know what version of Darren Ferguson's side will show up.

            They can beat any side on their day but they'll have to be at their best to get what is a much-needed win here.

            Sheffield Wednesday ended their League One campaign in 3rd place with ninety-six points.

            The Owls have had an impressive season but ultimately it's ended in a painful manner with Darren Moore's side missing out on an automatic promotion place that was in their grasp a couple of months ago.

            A six-match winless run from March-April saw them drop out of the top two and despite winning five of their last six games they were unable to claw their way back into the top two spots.

            They will still consider themselves unlucky to have accumulated such a number of points and still have to settle for 3rd as in most season's they'd have comfortably been promoted with that figure, but given the impressive exploits of Plymouth Argyle and Ipswich Town they have fallen short.

            They enter this game in excellent form having won their last four consecutive matches, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win over Derby County.

            Their win over Derby ensured Peterborough finished 6th so it would be very ironic if Peterborough were to eliminate them from the play-offs by their own doing.

            Their away form has been mixed on the whole having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five games on the road, but having won their last two on the bounce they'll hope they're moving in the right direction.

            These two sides have one win apiece from the two head-to-head encounters this season with both teams winning their home fixtures.

            It will take a huge effort from The Owls to claim all three points here but they enter this game in very good shape.

            For our Peterborough vs. Sheffield Wednesday prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

            Darren Ferguson will likely name the same lineup that started the 2-0 win at Oakwell last time out.

            Peterborough have retained the services of Ronnie Edwards, the centre-back whose play-off participation was in doubt with England's training camp for the U20 World Cup set to begin next week with the tournament getting underway on May 20th. However, Edwards will only join up with England later in the tournament and only if Peterborough fail to make the final at Wembley.

            Jonson Clarke-Harris finished joint-top of the League One scoring table with 26 goals and The Posh will be hoping he can carry that impressive form through to the play-offs.

            George Byers and Mallik Wilks both continue to miss out for The Owls but Michael Ihiekwe should continue at the heart of the defence after recently returning from a long spell on the sidelines.

            Lee Gregory is a fitness doubt but Josh Windass should be handed a place in the starting XI.
