Sheffield Wednesday News

Sheffield Wednesday suffered a huge blow in their hopes of earning an automatic promotion place following their shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Preston North End last weekend and manager Carlos Carvalhal would most certainly have been very disappointed at the missed opportunity for his side.

The Owls still remain among one of the promotion places but they cannot take anything for granted as the table is really tight at the moment and claiming three points when Queens Park Rangers pay a visit to Hillsborough on Tuesday night will be seen as a must win by Carvalhal.

Sheffield Wednesday Probable Lineup: K. Westwood, D. Pudil, J. Hunt, V. Sasso, T. Lees, R. Wallace, K. Lee, B. Bannan, Lucas João, A. Nuhiu, G. Hooper

Queens Park Rangers News

Queens Park Rangers avoided another embarrassing loss after a last minute goal from Matt Phillips earned them a 1-1 draw against strugglers Bolton Wanderers but the Hoops’ inability to secure three points once again means that their promotion dreams for this season is all but over.

Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink still has a lot to prove though and the Dutchman will surely want to finish the final quarter of the season on a high in order to show that he is the right man to lead the Hoops’ promotion charge next year.

Queens Park Rangers Probable Lineup: A. Smithies, P. Konchesky, N. Onuoha, J. Perch, G. Hall, K. Henry , M. Phillips, M. Luongo, J. Mackie, A. El Khayati, C. Washington

Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers played out a 0-0 draw when they squared off against each other earlier on in the season but the two teams have enjoyed contrasting fortunes since as the Owls have made rapid strides while QPR have made little progress.

Heading into Tuesday night’s clash Wednesday are the favourites and should be able to get over their weekend disappointment with a comfortable victory at home.

Sheffield Wednesday 2 – 0 Queens Park Rangers
