Check out our free top betting tips. The first Sheff Wed vs Peterborough prediction is below:

Over 0.5 Peterborough Goals

Peterborough have one of the strongest attacks in the entire League One. They also have the league’s leading goalscorer Clarke-Harris. Posh scored 8 goals in just the last 3 rounds. They are very aggressive on the road too as they average 1.38 goals per game in away matches (22 goals in 16 fixtures). Posh have been able to score at least 1 goal in all of their last 9 matches against Sheffield Wednesday too.

Peterborough or Draw

Our second Sheff Wed vs Peterborough prediction might seem a bit brave at first glance. However, we take into consideration the fact that Peterborough have actually won 4 of the last 5 games between the sides, including a 2-0 home win back in August. Also, despite winning their last 2 games the Owls looked unconvincing both times. They were second-best for larger periods in those matches and against stronger opponents, they would have been punished.

Clarke-Harris to Score Anytime

The League One leading goalscorer Clarke-Harris (18 goals) enters this match full of confidence. He has scored 5 times in just the last 7 rounds. He also opened the scoring back in August when the Posh beat the Owls 2-0 at home. Due to all that our final Sheff Wed vs Peterborough prediction is for the Posh captain to be on the scoresheet again.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Peterborough Lineups & News

Sheffield Wednesday

The Owls are undefeated in the last 20 rounds and they look in a very strong position right now to secure a direct promotion. The team’s position looks very solid to secure direct promotion even if they start to stumble a bit. Signs of that were witnessed in the last 2 rounds with Wednesday not playing very well for long periods and being somewhat lucky to win both times.

Missing 4 sidelined players, among which important defender Ihiekwe is the only notable absentee. Still, added to that is the fact that another regular defender Johnston is also out due to suspension and Wednesday’s back line will be a bit stretched for this match. At least the expectations are that the slightly battered James will be fit enough to return.

Peterborough

Peterborough were reduced to ten men early on Tuesday when hosting Charlton. Still, the Posh didn’t panic and deservedly earned a 0-0 draw. Last weekend they trashed the other top 2 team Plymouth 5-2 at home to show that on a good day, they can beat anyone in this division.

There are no serious injury issues in the squad with all of the regulars fit and raring to go right now. The one notable absentee will be the suspended Knight. However, in Kent a very good replacement for the centre-back role is available.
