Our Swansea City v Sheffield Wednesday predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).
Swansea City, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-0 Championship victory over Rotherham United.
In that game, Swansea City had 54% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Swansea City was Matt Grimes (28'). Rotherham United had 8 attempts at goal with 3 on target.
Under three goals per match were scored during 6 of the past 6 meetings where Swansea City have been participants. In terms of the goal distribution in that period, opposition teams scored a total of 3 and The Swans managed the sum of 7.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Swansea City:
- have not been beaten in the league by Sheffield Wednesday in their last 2 games.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Preston North End in Championship action, Sheffield Wednesday will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Sheffield Wednesday had 26% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 0 on target. For their opponents, Preston North End got 9 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Tom Barkhuizen (48') was the scorer for Preston North End.
It is worth noting that Sheffield Wednesday have been starved of goals over their last six encounters, recording the unsatisfactory return of just 1. In those fixtures, The Owls have also seen the collective goal tally of opposing teams equal 6. It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Ahead of this meeting, Sheffield Wednesday haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Swansea City
George Byers (Groin Injury) and Morgan Gibbs-White (Fractured Foot) will not be taking part for Swansea boss Steve Cooper. Declan John is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Sheffield Wednesday
Sheff Wed manager Tony Pulis has to choose a team with limited availability. Massimo Luongo (Knee Injury), Aden Flint (Hamstring Injury), Liam Shaw (Ankle Injury) and Chey Dunkley (Fractured Leg) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Kadeem Harris, Josh Windass and Keiren Westwood.
Our feeling is that Sheffield Wednesday are likely to find the back of the net against this Swansea City lineup, but it might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Swansea City when all is said and done. Should be a good one.
