Uncertainty avoidance is the name of the game for Sheffield Wednesday. They know better than anyone what the pain of a play-off defeat feels like, having missed out on promotion at Wembley last season following one lapse in concentration. Now they intend to make sure that single lapse doesn’t occur anywhere and if that means boring us all to tears in the process, so be it.
Carlos Carvalhal’s men lacked any real ambition in the first leg on Sunday but came away perfectly content with a 0-0 draw. Now the return game could follow a similar pattern, except this time the Owls will expect a big opportunity to drop their way at some stage. And, in front of a fervent 34,000 Hillsborough crowd, they would back themselves to take it.
If the cauldron of noise from the 2-0 first-leg win over Brighton last season is repeated, then the atmosphere alone should ensure Huddersfield spend much of this game on the back foot. Wednesday will attack more often, just don’t expect them to pile bodies forward without adequate cover. With that in mind, back the Draw/Wednesday half time/full time bet at 19/4.
Once the breakthrough arrives, and assuming Wednesday get it, Town simply have to throw caution to the wind and they haven’t been too clever in that scenario since the turn of the year. Eight of their nine defeats in 2017 have arrived by two clear goals or more. A repeat of the Wednesday 2-0 correct score from this fixture in January is also worth a nibble at 10/1.
