Neil Warnock predicts Sheffield Wednesday v Cardiff City

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City will face each other in the Championship this weekend.

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock predicted on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, April 25) that Sheffield Wednesday will not lose to Cardiff City at home this weekend.

Wednesday will take on Cardiff at the Hillsborough Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

“I think Sheffield will have a bit too much, if I am honest,” said Warnock on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, April 25).

“I don’t think they will lose the game, and I think that’s all they have got to do. And I tell you, they are not a bad shout in the playoffs.”

Wednesday are sixth in the Championship table at the moment with 71 points from 44 matches, four points above Cardiff, who are currently seventh in the standings.

The Owls are in a brilliant position to claim the final playoff spot, and a win against the Bluebirds at Hillsborough Stadium on Saturday afternoon will ascertain that.

A defeat is going to dent Wednesday’s chances of finishing in the top six of the Championship this season, but they will still have their destiny in their own hands.

It is hard to see Carlos Carvalhal’s side lose this weekend, especially as they are at home and the pressure is all on Cardiff.

The Welsh outfit have to win the match in order to retain their chances of claiming the final playoff spot.
