The72’s writers offer their Plymouth Argyle vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction ahead of the Championship clash on Wednesday night.
Plymouth Argyle come into their midweek clash with Sheffield Wednesday off the back of a good point away at West Brom. The two sides played out a 0-0 draw, with goalkeeper Michael Cooper making a successful return to action.
It marked a good result for the Pilgrims but they’ll view this game as a great chance to end their four-game winless run in the Championship.
As for Sheffield Wednesday, they were defeated by Watford in their first game under the management of Danny Rohl. The Owls are still without a victory in the league this season, leaving them bottom of the table as a result.
Wednesday have gathered just one point on the road while all three of Plymouth’s wins have been at home.
Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…
“Both teams should be viewing this as a good chance to get three points. Plymouth are without a win in four but at home to Sheffield Wednesday, Schumacher’s men need to take the chance to get back on track.
“The Pilgrims’ lack of momentum could be something the visitors pounce on though. The hope will be that Wednesday can take strides forward with every passing game under Rohl but Home Park is not an easy place to go at the best of times.
“I feel like a big win is coming for Wednesday, but I’m not sure if it comes here. I’ll back the hosts to get a much-needed victory of their own.”
Plymouth Argyle vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction: 2-1
“Plymouth have the capability of beating anyone in the Championship when playing at home, so for Sheffield Wednesday, this is another difficult game.
“And with Plymouth having slipped down the table, expect them to go and attack Wednesday tomorrow night as they go in search of three points.
“Wednesday may be better prepared for this one under Rohl, but I still think he faces an uphill task this season, and I think the Owls could suffer another defeat in this one.”
