Championship Betting Tips: Swansea v Sheff Wednesday

Championship action on Sunday sees two sides with mixed records since lockdown - each recording a win, a defeat and a draw - face-off, as a Swansea side still chasing a top-six finish host midtable Sheffield Wednesday.

One more defeat could potentially be fatal for Swansea’s playoff hopes, but still within four points of the top six, they have everything to play for, a position they’re perhaps a little fortunate to be in given they’ve won just two of their last 12 Championship outings. 

 

Swansea made a statement on their return by racing to a three-goal lead against Middlesbrough within 15 minutes, seeing out the 3-0 win comfortably, but they’ve failed to maintain those standards since by losing 0-1 at home to Luton and drawing 1-1 with Millwall.

 

Liverpool loanee can consider himself a little unlucky not to be credited with a goal in midweek after his well-struck free-kick bounced off the crossbar and went in off the head of Millwall keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, but he can be satisfied with his six goals since joining from parent club Liverpool in January and will be looking to punish an out-of-form Sheffield Wednesday outfit here. The teenage striker is 15/8 to score anytime, 11/2 to score first or 11/1 to notch twice. 

 

Only relegation-battlers Hull City have picked up fewer points than Garry Monk’s Owls in 2020, but they made a reasonable return to action by drawing 1-1 with Nottingham Forest, claiming a point with an injury-time equaliser, going on to beat Bristol City 1-2 away, but they returned to earth with a thud in midweek with a sorry 3-0 defeat to promotion-chasers West Brom. They could yet be dragged into trouble amid the threat of an EFL points deduction.

 

Sheffield Wednesday returned looking much-improved after the break, but their sorry 3-0 home defeat West Brom saw them return to their concerning poor throughout 2020. Given that, we recommend backing the hosts here at 6/5.

     Swansea City 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday - Match Report

    Swansea cling onto vital win to keep slim Championship play-off hopes alive

    Swansea kept their slim Sky Bet Championship play-off hopes alive with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday thanks to goals from Rhian Brewster and Andre Ayew.

    Steve Cooper’s side struggled in the first half as they struggled to adapt to their head coach’s new formation, but they improved after the break.

    Brewster opened the scoring before Ayew’s penalty doubled the advantage. Wednesday manager and Swansea great Garry Monk saw Atdhe Nuhiu pull one back in added time but it was too little, too late for the visitors.

    Swansea’s defensive crisis saw full-back Kyle Naughton forced to step in as an emergency centre-back before Wednesday winger Jacob Murphy had three fine early chances.

    The second saw Adam Reach’s cross deflect slightly off Naughton to Murphy at the back post, but with plenty of space he could only spoon over the bar.

    Minutes later, Murphy was in on goal again. This time his powerful low shot was saved by Freddie Woodman.

    Swansea were operating with a three-man defence with Connor Roberts and Wayne Routledge as wing backs. They looked vulnerable, confused and too narrow, especially on the left with Murphy benefiting.

    The home side’s shoddiness at the back was coupled with a lack of an attacking threat and Jay Fulton was booked for a poor tackle on Julian Borner.

    Alessio Da Cruz had a shot blocked by Marc Guehi and he also headed over but the Owls failed to make their opportunities count in the first half. Brewster’s poor free-kick summed up Swansea’s struggles.

    Swansea’s persistence with their shape at the break finally paid dividends after the break, with Ayew having a free-kick saved before the hosts moved ahead.

    Roberts crossed from the right, Fulton flicked on, and Brewster was quickest to react as he fired home to open the scoring.

    In the 63rd minute, Swansea swapped Routledge for centre-back Mike Van Der Hoorn for his first appearance since January 2 and soon it was 2-0 to the home side.

    Roberts attempted to get on the end of Jake Bidwell’s cross but was fouled by Reach, who was booked and then replaced, with Ayew stepping up to convert the penalty for his 16th goal of the season.

    The fact Wednesday were two behind must have been of huge disappointment to Monk, especially after his team’s first-half showing.

    Brewster should have made it 3-0 when he raced in on goal from a brilliant Naughton pass but he could only hit the side netting.

    The Liverpool loanee left the field late on using his shirt as a makeshift sling to nurse what looked like a shoulder injury.

    Nuhiu headed in a cross from fellow Wednesday substitute Kadeem Harris to halve the deficit but Swansea held on.
