Ian Holloway predicts Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves games

Ian Holloway Vs Chelsea

Sheffield Wednesday will face Brighton & Hove Albion, while Wolverhampton Wanderers will take on Bristol City in the Championship this evening.

Brighton & Hove Albion v Sheffield Wednesday

Former Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway has told Sky Sports that today’s game between Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield Wednesday will end in a goalless draw.

Brighton and Wednesday will face each other at the American Express Community Stadium in the Championship this evening.

“This is going to be a belting game - Wednesday will be looking over their shoulder, won't they?” Holloway told Sky Sports.

“And Brighton at home are a tough, tough nut to crack, so I am going to go for a goalless draw in this one as I just cannot see anyone breaking the deadlock.”

Both Brighton and Wednesday are going strong in the Championship at the moment, and both teams are aiming to finish in the top six.

The Seagulls are just four points behind leaders Burnley in fourth place, and they will fancy their chances of getting automatic promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Wednesday currently find themselves in the final playoff spot in sixth, and the Owls will be determined to pick up at least a point from their trip to the American Express Community Stadium.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Bristol City

Holloway has backed Wolverhampton Wanderers to pick up all three points from their home match against Bristol City this evening.

The former Crystal Palace boss has predicted Wolves to register a 2-1 win at Molineux in the Championship.

“I have to give this one to Wolves, who are enjoying a great little resurgence at the moment and I think that, at home, they will just have too much for City and so I am going to go for a 2-1 win,” Holloway told Sky Sports.

Wolves are 13th in the Championship table at the moment and are unlikely to finish in the top six.

Kenny Jackett’s side will head into the game against 20th-placed City on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough away from home at the Riverside Stadium in the league.
