Match Preview: Sheffield Wednesday vs Fulham

In this weekend’s fixture for the Owls, they play Fulham in the last game of the regular season before the 2016/17 Sky Bet Championship playoffs take place next week. The Owls will be surely looking to extend their winning form to 7 games, even though they have already secured a playoff place, as have Fulham.

The last time Sheffield Wednesday met Fulham at Hillsborough in the league, the Owls won 3-2.

 

After the 1-0 win at Ipswich and a playoff place secured, people are predicting that Carlos will line up a changed team for this weekend’s game.

Last time out, the Owls drew against the Cottagers at Craven Cottage back in November, 1-1. Fernando Forestieri struck first for the visitors in the first half to give the Owls the lead, but Fulham equalised late in the second half through Scott Malone.
