For Sheffield Wednesday the equation here is simple. Defeat will see them relegated from the Championship with a game still to play. They host a Nottingham Forest side sat safely in midtable, but without a win in four league matches which should provide the Owls with hope that they can capitalise.
Forestboss Chris Hughton will no doubt have his eyes on the summer now, assessing his squad and identifying which players to keep and who to ship out. Questions must be raised over whether the visitors will be up for the fight here against a side who will surely be leaving everything out on the pitch as they battle for their lives.
That extra desire to cover every blade of grass and win every 50-50 could be the difference in this one and providing the Owls’ frontline can show their obvious quality in front of goal that has been absent far too often this season, then they may just be able to take their relegation fight to the final day with a precious three points here.
Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to keep their slim survival hopes alive when they take on Nottingham Forest in the penultimate round of Championship fixtures this weekend.
The Owls find themselves in a precarious position going into the weekend. Rotherham’s defeat by Brentford on Tuesday was good news for Darren Moore, who has been absent from the dugout of late after contracting pneumonia, but Wednesday are still up against it in their fight to stay up.
In truth, it has been an uphill battle for the Yorkshire outfit all season long. Wednesday began the season with a 12-point deduction, and although that was later reduced to six on appeal, they have occupied a place in the relegation zone for the vast majority of the campaign.
Moore is Wednesday’s third permanent manager of 2020/21, and with Wednesday four points adrift of safety ahead of this must-win game, the former Doncaster boss looks set to be competing in League One again next term. Defeat here would confirm the club’s demotion, and a draw may do the same if Derby avoid defeat by Swansea.
Nottingham Forest were themselves troubled by relegation fears earlier in the season, but Chris Hughton has now achieved his objective of keeping the East Midlanders in the second tier. Forest have lost only one of their last seven outings and have risen to 17th, with a 12-point cushion above the bottom three. Hughton will hope to be even more clear of the drop zone this time next term.
