Wednesday confident of a change of luck against bogey team Cardiff
Tom Lees will miss Sheff Wednesday’s visit to the City Of Cardiff Stadium this Saturday with a hamstring injury picked up against Stoke City two weeks ago and Carlos Carvalhal will also be without defender Michael Turner. Jack Hunt missed the 0-0 draw with Derby County last weekend and is also a doubt but Owls captain Glenn Loovens is looking forward to returning to his former club – the Dutchman has enjoyed two spells in the Welsh capital.
Connections don’t end there between Wednesday and the Bluebirds, who have former Owls striker Kenwyne Jones among their ranks. But the Trinidad and Tobago striker has not scored in three matches, though there have been signs of promise in his blossoming partnership with on-loan Charlton forward Tony Watt.
However, they’ve lost just once in the Championship in three months, though drawn their last two. In fact, they’ve drawn every game against teams currently in the top six so that result looks a distinct possibility in Cardiff at 43/20 (Full Time Result). Wednesday are only behind Saturday’s opponents, currently occupying the last play-off place, on goal difference so there looks to be little between the sides with City having lost just once in the league at home so far.
Russell Slade’s have struggled to score against the top sides and Under (2.5) Goals would have paid dividends in five of their last six matches against teams in the top half – we are offering 8/13 against that outcome in the match with Sheffield Wednesday. Cardiff scores first and draw is 7/1 in our Matchflow betting.
The match kicks off at 3.00pm on Saturday, December 12 at the City Of Cardiff Stadium
