- Swansea have lost just one of their last five Championship games
- Recommended bet:
Tie and under 2.5 goals

Sheffield Wednesday will hope to climb out of the relegation zone on Friday when they take on Swansea at Hillsborough in the Championship.

Successive defeats to promotion-chasing Leeds and Ipswich have ensured that the Owls remain 23rd in the table, eight points behind 15th-placed Swansea but just a point from safety.

The Swans are almost safe from relegation, as they have a seven-point buffer to the drop zone, and the club may already be thinking about plans for the next campaign.

Team news

Wednesday coach Danny Rohl will be without Josh Windass, Callum Paterson, Kristian Pedersen, Ian Poveda and Juan Delgado through injury.

Club captain Barry Bannan is a doubt due to a muscle problem, adding to Rohl's selection issues.

Swansea manager Luke Williams also has a lengthy injury list to handle, with Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango, Harrison Ashby, Josh Ginnelly and Liam Walsh all in the medical room.

Mykola Kukharevych has been sidelined since February but is in contention to feature in this fixture.

The stats

The Owls have lost back-to-back games in the Championship, going down to the promotion-chasing duo of Leeds and Ipswich.

Wednesday have lost just one of their last six home matches in all competitions, picking up victories over Plymouth, Birmingham and Bristol City during this period.

Swansea's sole defeat in their last five came against the Robins.

The Swans have struggled to pick up results on the road, winning just two of their previous 10 road assignments in all competitions.

Prediction

This game certainly means a lot more to Wednesday than Swansea, who have very little to play for at this stage of the season given the play-offs are out of reach.

The Owls have been tough to break down at home of late, keeping clean sheets against Watford, Birmingham and Plymouth, and it is tough to see Swansea racking up the goals.

The Swans have scored two or more goals in just one of their last six away encounters, and these two sides look like they will cancel each other out.
