Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston North End match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting results last time out are set to lock horns as part of the third round of Championship fixtures at Hillsborough this Saturday, August 19th.

The matchup in question will see Sheffield Wednesday act as hosts, in a meeting with Preston North End.

Beginning with the former, Sheffield Wednesday, for their part, have endured something of a rough return to the 2nd tier of English football to date.

First, on opening day, the Owls were condemned to a hard-fought albeit deserved 2-1 defeat at the hands of Southampton.

And this was followed last time out by a 2nd successive loss, on this occasion at Hull City.

Though both Juan Delgado and Michael Smith did manage to find the net, their endeavours ultimately proved to be in vain, as Hull put four past Devis Vasquez at the other end.

Wednesday, all told, therefore find themselves sitting joint-bottom of the table, without a single point to show for their efforts.

Turning attentions towards Saturday’s visitors to Hillsborough, Preston have endured an altogether more fruitful start to the new season.

The Lilywhites kicked their own term into gear by way of a 1-1 stalemate at Bristol City, summer signing Will Keane making the difference courtesy of a late equaliser.

Then, more recently, Ryan Lowe’s men clinched that all-important first three-point haul, owing to a hard-fought downing of Sunderland.

After the aforementioned Keane was again on target midway through the first-half, Mads Frøkjær-Jensen proved himself the hero, bagging what ultimately proved to be the day’s winner on the hour mark.

Preston, in turn, sit 8th in the table, albeit level with Watford all the way up in 3rd.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Saturday’s action in south Yorkshire unfolding?

Though visitors Preston, for obvious reasons, should be considered favourites to take all three points, based on the bookmakers’ odds, we are backing an eventual stalemate as our recommended bet.
