Sheffield Wednesday lost 2 vital points at the weekend as they let Hartlepool equalise with only 3 minutes to go to draw 2-2 in a game they were expected to win convincingly.
The Owls are now in 4th place league 1 but can draw level on points with Huddersfield who are 2nd with a win over local rival Scunthorpe United tonight.
Gary Megson’s men need a good result after slipping up in the last 2 games and will be buoyed by the fact that Scunthorpe have only 1 win in 13. United don’t win many but have drawn 4 of their last 5, so are also hard to break down.
The Owls have 5 away victories out of 6 and Scunthorpe are the only team yet to keep a single clean sheet at home in the league this season. Another note with this fixture is that there have been 17 goals in the last 4 meetings, so if the trend continues we could be in for a high scoring game.
Sheffield Wednesday should get back on the winning trail tonight and put the heat back on the top 3 in league 1, but don’t expect Scunthorpe to lay down easily.
