Match Preview: Sheffield Wednesday V Nottingham Forest: Must win game for The Owls

29 April 2021

Team news, stats and odds ahead of Sheffield Wednesdays must win game vs Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 12:30pm).

 Sheffield Wednesday face Nottingham Forest this Saturday where only a win will do.

The Owls currently sit second to last in the Sky Bet Championship, with only two games left to play, but they aren’t out of it yet.

Derby County are currently just outside the relegation zone and 4 points above Wednesday, meaning a win for Derby would seal their fate.

Most would say it’s been a hard year for football in Sheffield, with Sheffield United being confirmed relegated to the Championship earlier this month.

But there still is hope for Sheffield Wednesday, as Derby have a tough fixture against Play-off-bound Swansea on Saturday at 3pm.

What could make for a thrilling end to the Championship season is if Sheffield Wednesday beat Nottingham Forest and Derby lose to Swansea – Sheffield Wednesday would sit one point behind Derby with one game left to play. Derby away.
