Stoke City v Leeds United - Sky Bet Championship
Stoke City will host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday

Stoke City will welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Bet365 Stadium for an EFL Championship matchday 20 fixture on Saturday (December 9th).

The hosts are coming into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat away to Plymouth Argyle. They took the lead through Tyrese Campbell's 23rd-minute opener, while Mustapha Bundu drew the game level in the 43rd minute. Adam Randell stepped off the bench to score the match-winner deep into injury time.

Sheffield Wednesday, meanwhile, claimed maximum points in a 3-1 home win over Blackburn Rovers. Bailey Cadamarteri, Marvin Johnson and Josh Windass all found the back of the net to guide the Owls to victory.

Despite the win, they remain at the foot of the standings, having garnered just 10 points from 19 games. Stoke City are 20th with 21 points to their name.

Stoke City vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Stoke City have plummeted down the table with their current five-game winless run. The pressure is mounting on Alex Neil and the Scotsman will be looking to get back on track against the bottom-placed Owls.

Sheffield Wednesday have gone two games without defeat for the first time this season but remain 10 points away from safety. New manager Danny Rohl is the youngest manager in the league but his side have the worst away record, having managed just one point in nine games on the road.

We are backing the home side to claim maximum points with a narrow victory and clean sheet.
