3 goals at home all season. How do The Owls solve their scoring problem?

Sheffield Wednesday have managed just three goals at Hillsborough all season, and with just 1 in their last five games overall, they are in trouble.

Despite a promising start to the season for Stuart Gray's side, Sheffield Wednesday are looking more like relegation candidates than top six contenders. One goal in their last five games has seen them pick up three points, and if it weren't for a tight backline then they would be a lot lower down the table.

Wednesday fans haven't been getting their moneys worth in terms of goals this season. Their goals for column reads just 12 overall, only Blackpool have scored less with eight. There is also just one team who have conceded less than The Owls, with Middlesbrough's defence shipping just 12 goals compared to the 14 that have hit the back of Keiren Westwood's net.

Whilst Stuart Gray clearly needs to work on the attacking aspects of his tactics at least he doesn't have to worry about a leaky defence. Wednesday aren't far away from being one of the top sides in this division. He deserves credit for the job he has done since taking over last season, but they do lack a prolific striker.

A decent amount of money was spent on Stevie May; brought in from St Johnstone, and whilst he has shown promise he has only managed three goals in the league. As has Atdhe Nuhiu and the loan signing of Gary Taylor-Fletcher represents a hard-worker perhaps capable of creating goals rather than scoring them.

What they are lacking, is a pacey, creative winger in the mould of Michail Antonio. He was a huge presence for them last season and has settled into life at Nottingham Forest with ease. He scores and creates goals aplenty and Wednesday should be looking to the loan market to find someone to fill his boots.
