Blackburn were able to make the most of a game against a relegation-threatened opponent to ease their own relegation fears. However, repeating the same feat against a confident outfit like Sheffield Wednesday, who are unbeaten in nine matches, will be a difficult task. Bruce has overseen an unbeaten run since taking over but there have been stalemates along the way. Blackburn’s away form is disastrous with an alarming number of goals being conceded by the team. Our preview would back a victory for Wednesday.

Bruce Arena has seen his team concede just one goal at home since taking over. It has been the foundation behind an impressive set of results for Wednesday, who are now just a few points away from the play-offs. Wednesday have the fourth-best defensive record over the last six league matches. Blackburn, meanwhile, have the second-worst defensive record when it comes to away games in the last six. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-0 win for the home team.
