In-form Sheffield Wednesday to continue play-off push against struggling Burton Albion

Written by James Wilson

After moving into the play-off places with an imposing victory over Charlton at the weekend, Sheffield Wednesday will go in search of another three points against Burton Albion at Hillsborough tomorrow night.

Overcoming the Addicks on Saturday thanks to goals from George Byers and Callum Paterson, Sheffield Wednesday appear to be battling through their injury problems as they prepare to welcome 14th-placed Burton to South Yorkshire.

Saturday’s triumph means the Owls have now won six of their last seven games in League One, and will fancy their chances of continuing this good run of form against a Burton side who have contrastingly won only one match over this same period.

In the last meeting between the two sides at the Pirelli Stadium at the start of this month, Wednesday ran out 2-0 winners courtesy of goals from George Byers and Sylla Sow. Owls manager Darren Moore will be hoping for a repeat at Hillsborough tomorrow as he aims to cement the club’s position in the play-off spots.

Speaking after his side’s win over Charlton on Saturday, the Wednesday gaffer was pleased to see the Owls move take their place in the top six.

Moore said: “That’s what we wanted to do. That’s been one of our aims and then from the top six we start working and continue to look up the table. We’ve got another game here on Tuesday and we have to turn our focus and attention towards that.”

Sheffield Wednesday’s match against Burton Albion in League One will take place at Hillsborough at 7:45pm tomorrow night.
