Sheff Wed vs Cheltenham in EFL League One on Mar 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Sheff Wed vs Cheltenham in EFL League One on Mar 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

When it comes to any League One season, this is when things get most exciting and with the race for the play-offs intensifying by the week, Sheffield Wednesday are doing their best to land a top-six finish.

If they are to find themselves within the top-six, then they will need to get the better of Cheltenham on Saturday and with the visitors having nothing to play for themselves, this could be the ideal opportunity for Darren Moore’s men.

Sheffield Wednesday To Win

When looking at the Sheffield Wednesday’s and Cheltenham’s respective league positions, this is a game that the former will be favourites to win and especially when you consider home advantage as well.

Not only that, but Cheltenham’s season is all but complete now and although they will not necessarily rollover for the Owls, there is little reason for Michael Duff’s men to put up a fight either.

Which means after looking at all the best betting sites online, I have decided to keep this one rather simple and especially at the price on offer. A home win at odds of 7/10 (888Sport), it does not get simpler than that.

Sheff Wed Form, squad news, opinion

Although Sheffield Wednesday currently find themselves lying 7th in the League One table, they do have a game in hand over Sunderland who lie a position above them and with Sunderland being given the week off, all eyes will be on Hillsborough on Saturday.

Because with the Owls being just a point behind the Black Cats and also possessing a superior goal difference, manager Darren Moore knows that even a point will take his side into the top-six.

However, the former West Brom manager will also be aware that the race for a top-six berth is incredibly cutthroat and although just a point would be sufficient, earning all three would be even more helpful.

Especially as Sheffield Wednesday have ceded ground during their last two league outings and although they are currently unbeaten in their last three, they have only managed to draw their last two.

Which means the promotion trail has gone slightly off course in recent weeks and failure to get things back on track at the weekend, will only hand a further advantage to the teams above them.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Cheltenham, Darren Moore only has two concerns to deal with as manager and with Lewis Gibson once again struggling for fitness, he will likely join Dennis Adeniran on the sidelines.

Cheltenham Form, squad news, opinion

There is no doubt that Cheltenham’s recent performances have been something of a mixed bag and this can be summed up by their league form. Played six, won three and lost three, that is the tale of the tape right now.

Then again, it must not be forgotten that Cheltenham do find themselves in the security of mid-table right now and with 50 points under their belts already, they have also managed to steer clear of relegation worries.

Which means the Cheltenham side have every right to be on the beach right now and with the play-offs also out of reach, it means manager Michael Duff has a bit of a dilemma when it comes to continual motivation.

Because with not a great deal to play for between Saturday and the end of the season, this final stretch amounts to nothing more than a handful of League One dead rubbers for them to deal with.

That is not to say that this Cheltenham side is not professional, if anything far from it. However, they are also there for the taking and this situation could well play into Sheffield Wednesday’s hands this weekend.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Sheff Wed, there is only one injury concern for manager Michael Duff to deal with and this comes courtesy of Dan N’Lundulu’s continued absence in attack.

History

There is very little in the way of history between these two sides, if only because they have met just once before. The inaugural meeting between Sheffield Wednesday and Cheltenham took place in October of last year.

While it was certainly an entertaining encounter at the Jonny Rocks Stadium, as the two sides played out a 2-2 draw and were it not for Matty Blair’s late equaliser, it would have been Sheffield Wednesday who earned maximum points.

About the Venue

With Sheffield Wednesday now plying their trade in the third tier of English football, their Hillsborough ground does not have the same appeal as it once did and hosting of major events such as the League Cup final are now a thing of the past.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the League One odds for a top-six finish, Sheffield Wednesday are currently priced as short as 1/2 (bet365) and this could shorten further, should they get the better of Cheltenham on Saturday.

While when it comes to Cheltenham themselves, there is little reason to back them in any of the current outright markets and instead the focus should be on what they do in each individual league encounter.
