Sheffield Wednesday hope to end their winless run in the Championship when they host fellow strugglers Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough Stadium on Wednesday.

Second from bottom in the league table with 28 points from 35 games, the Owls have won only nine times all season and look set to be relegated.

They're currently on a seven-game winless run, including three under Darren Moore, who took charge at the start of March.

He's been unable to lift them out of the lurch so far. With time running out, the Sheffield outfit's decade-long run in the Championship might be heading to a close.

Meanwhile, the Terriers haven't covered themselves in glory either, as they're down in 18th position and just nine points clear of the bottom-three.

However, things have been looking up for them recently, after going three games without a defeat, including a 1-0 away victory to Queens Park Rangers.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield Head-To-Head

In 105 games, Sheffield Wednesday have beaten Huddersfield only 29 times, but lost to them on 41 occasions.

That included a 2-0 defeat away from home in December, which was also their first league meeting since May 2012.
