Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday betting tips: League One preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Two of English football’s fallen giants go head-to-head in the East Midlands.

Of the two, Sheffield Wednesday are better placed to get out of the third-tier, currently sat in third place.

The Owls have won their last three league matches, most recently beating Shrewsbury at Hillsborough; Mark McGuinness the only scorer.

Since, Darren Moore’s team have already reached the FA Cup third round, ousting Mansfield, and will now host Premier League high-fliers Newcastle.

Derby County meantime, having dropped down to this level for the first time since 1986, are currently just below the play-off spots.

Paul Warne’s team are unbeaten in five league matches, the only problem being that three of these have been draws.

The Rams did also win in the FA Cup last weekend, ousting Newport County on Sunday, and will now host Barnsley.

Will there be a winner at Pride Park?
