Sheffield Wed V Blackburn – Form Teams & Schemes

Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn Rovers go into this relegation six-pointer on 47 points, remaining outside of the drop zone by virtue of goal difference.  Huddersfield Town 22nd, who entertain Peterborough, in 23rd, could well pounce at one of these big names expense and even leap-frog Barnsley who are away at promotion chasing Crystal Palace.

A massive thank you to Sheffield Wednesday for the free tickets for this one (as well as ex Owls Vadaine Oliver and Todd Jordan who are pulling up roses at the Imps) and so to pay for our supper, for our sins, with a statistical preview as a prelude to a view from The Leppings Lane report on the game itself. If it is anything to go by I have never seen the Owls lose at Hillsborough, with every game being against Arsenal ( I was a season ticket holder for 14 years after the seats came in until moving up to Lincoln to start another story)  thank you for reading the Form of the Foe courtesy of Neil Gentleman-Hobbs
