On Saturday, a cracking League One football game will take place between Sheffield Wednesday and Shrewsbury at the Hillsborough Stadium.

As the season nears its halfway point, the home team will believe that they are promotion contenders after a largely successful campaign.

In their most recent match, they defeated Accrington Stanley by a slim but well-deserved score of 1-0. Midway through the first half, Alex Mighten scored the game’s lone goal.

With 37 points from 18 games, Sheffield Wednesday is third in the league standings. When they play this coming weekend, they’ll be hoping to keep up their winning streak.

In contrast, despite having a strong start to the season, Shrewsbury has found it difficult to flourish in League One. Their previous match ended in a 1-0 loss to Barnsley, and they had no cause for complaint given that they failed to generate any meaningful chances to influence the outcome.

The visitors sit 14th in the League One standings with 23 points from 18 matches and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this Saturday.

The 25th meeting between Sheffield Wednesday and Shrewsbury will take place this match.

In their previous meetings, the hosts had only triumphed three times while the visitors had done so eight times. 13 draws have occurred between the two teams!

What more is just one of the last four games in this series has been won by the home team.

And Sheffield has only suffered one of its three league losses at home this year. In their last seven games across all competitions, the visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet!

One would have a really brave to bet on anything but a win for Sheffield Wednesday!

Well, anyone’s call huh?
