Sheffield Wednesday News and Form
The Owls have been in good form since just before Christmas. They have lost just two league fixtures in their last twenty played in the Championship. They have suffered only the one in their last fourteen, which was at home against Aston Villa. That means that the Owls are on a six-match undefeated streak of away form on the road at the moment and they have kept each of their last three road games to under 2.5 goals. While they are a tough side to beat on the road, they are W2 D4 in their last six road fixtures.
The overall away record of the Owls this season is W6 D6 L8. They have produced 21 goals in total which is nothing spectacular. They have taken a clean sheet in 30% of their away games and they have earned a clean sheet in four of their last six away from home. Of the goals which they have scored on their travels, two-thirds of them have been in the second half of games. They have also conceded two-thirds of their away goals after the halftime break. The Owls have been level at halftime in 9 of their 20 away games. Can they frustrate the Whites at Elland Road?
