Nottingham Forest face Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday in the Championship, and HITC pundits give their predictions on the likely outcome.

Dan Coombs

Nottingham Forest 1-3 Sheffield Wednesday

Both sides are spoilt for choice up front, but there is a big difference in the quality at the back. Forest have conceded eight goals over their last two games and Wednesday should be able to take advantage of this and keep up their play-off momentum.

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday

Forest score a fair few but, thankfully for Wednesday, their defensive record leaves a lot to be desired. Expect goals then when these two go head to head though the hosts have shown their spirit under Gary Brazil.

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday

Games involving Nottingham Forest have invariably meant goals this season, and that trend could continue against promotion hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday. Forest are a good team at home, whilst Wednesday have an indifferent away record. A score-draw could be very possible.

Nottingham Forest 2-3 Sheffield Wednesday

This could be a humdinger of a match and while Wednesday should come out on top, Forest should make this interesting. Wednesday will understand the importance of maintaining their promotion push and have the players to fight out an entertaining win.

Nottingham Forest 1-2 Sheffield Wednesday

Forest have slipped to a couple of disappointing defeats recently, conceding eight goals in just two matches. Wednesday on the other hand are on the up, with three straight victories and only one goal conceded in those games. The Owls look in good form for the playoffs in my opinion, boosted by their attacking additions.

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Forest have lost their last two games by an aggregate score of 8-3, while Wednesday have won three in a row since signing Jordan Rhodes. The form guide points at another win for the Owls, who will climb to fifth if they win their next two. However, something tells me it won't be quite so easy.
