          Sheffield Wednesday vs. Derby Prediction, Tips & Stats

          A game with major implications for the League One play-off race takes place at Hillsborough on Sunday as Sheffield Wednesday face Derby County.

          Sheffield Wednesday currently sit 3rd in League One with twenty-seven wins, twelve draws and six losses from forty-five games this season.

          The Owls will consider themselves mightily unfortunate to have accumulated 93, potentially even 96, points without securing an automatic promotion spot.

          It's rare that such a volume of points would lead only to a play-off spot but they can only have themselves to blame as they were in the driving seat for the title just a few weeks back before embarking on a six-match unbeaten run that effectively lost them a top two spot.

          They've successfully regained their form having won four of their last five games and each of their last three, but it's too little too late and they must now have to secure promotion the hard way.

          They're exceptionally difficult to beat on their own patch having not lost at Hillsborough since a 2-3 defeat to Burton Albion back in September, so they should avoid defeat here.

          Wednesday are locked into 3rd place regardless of what happens here so there is a chance they take their foot off the gas for this one, but they'll want to enter the play-offs with momentum on their side so manager Darren Moore will try not to let complacency sneak in on Sunday.

          Derby County currently sit 6th in League One with twenty-one wins, thirteen draws and eleven losses from forty-five games this season.

          The Rams have had a fairly underwhelming campaign this time out given they came into the season as one of the favourites for automatic promotion only to spend its entirety on the precipice of the top six.

          And their place in said top six is not even assured as if Peterborough United win on Sunday they must get at least a point here to ensure they remain in 6th.

          A win here for Derby ensures a play-off spot regardless of what happens elsewhere but if Derby draw here and Peterborough win then The Rams must hope that Peterborough do not win by three goals or more as that would result in the two sides switching places.

          Derby enter this game in decent form having gone unbeaten in their last six while winning two of their last three but they've had a few fairly underwhelming draws in that period and probably aren't at their best.

          This is a huge game for Derby but one they'll find exceptionally difficult to win. A point should see them through given Peterborough have a tough trip to Barnsley on the final day but they'll want to take all three points to avoid a nervy finish.

          For our Sheffield Wednesday vs. Derby prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
