A brace from Sykes and goals from Leigh and McConville were able to hand a big win for the hosts.

Sheffield Wednesday win

Sheffield Wednesday produced a below-par performance against Rotherham but they are expected to bounce back quickly. Accrington might have produced back-to-back wins but both of these successes have been at home. John Coleman has seen his team struggle in away matches with just four victories on the road this season. Wednesday are looking for a double over this opponent after the narrow win earlier in the campaign.

Total goals over 2.5

Accrington showed their threat from set pieces in the win over Crewe Alexandra. Wednesday had kept four consecutive clean sheets before the loss against Rotherham. In recent weeks, Wednesday have witnessed a strong defence and the last five matches have produced less than 2.5 goals. However, Accrington’s threat from set pieces should push the total goals in this game.

Both teams to score – yes

Accrington have only failed to score once in the last seven league encounters. Wednesday might have kept four consecutive clean sheets before the weekend, but they looked quite shaky in set piece situations. This alone could lead to goals for the visitors.

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have a tough job on their hands to bounce back quickly from the recent loss against Rotherham.
