(Jose Semedo has proved an excellent signing for Sheffield Wednesday from Charlton)
In League One 2nd in the table Sheffield Wednesday take on Stevenage at Hillsborough in a game between two of the league's best teams. Wednesday have been outstanding at home, losing just once & drawing three times with ten wins but they'll have to overcome a side in Stevenage that have conceded just 11 times in 14 away games & who have the 2nd best defence in the league behind leaders Charlton. Thanks to the weather Stevenage haven't played since their FA cup win against Notts County in new manager Gary Smith's first game in charge whereas Wednesday have played three times in the league getting a win, a draw & a loss. Smith surely won't want to change things too much tactically from what predecessor Graham Westley was doing as they have only one league loss since October & they will surely come & try to keep things tight but it will be tough to stop Wednesday scoring as they have 29 goals in their 14 home games. Wednesday will be looking to avenge a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Stevenage at the start of the season & will look to strike partnership Ryan Lowe & Gary Madine to do the damage; they have 20 league goals between them. Stevenage share their goals throughout the team but Chris Beardsley has been a danger man although he's often used as a super sub, the worry for them is trying to get going again after a two week break & although the rest will have been welcomed Sheffield Wednesday can prove a little sharper & take the win at odds of 20/21. We don't expect this to be easy & with that in mind we like the look of a 1-0 win for Wednesday at a tempting 7/1.
