One change, no Hutchinson: Sheffield Wednesday’s predicted XI vs Watford

The international break is finally over and we’ve got a feast of football this weekend as Good Friday sees Sheffield Wednesday face Watford.

The Owls actually managed to win their last game in the Championship, turning Barnsley over at Oakwell, and they will be hoping to carry that momentum into this one.

Unfortunately, the Yorkshire outfit probably couldn’t have asked for a tougher task here, with high-flying Watford looking almost unbeatable as of late.

However, after two weeks of training with Darren Moore, Wednesday should be prepped and ready for this one, but if they are to get a win, Moore will have to get his team selection spot on.

With that in mind, we’ve had a go at predicting Wednesday’s starting XI for this one.

We think that there will be just one change for this match with Keiren Westwood returning after dropping out of the XI with injury before the Owls’ game against Barnsley.

The old adage is, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, so we don’t think that Moore will want to tinker too much with what proved to be a winning formula last time out.

We think the formation will remain the same, but we expect it to look like more of a back five than a back three for this one as Adam Reach and Liam Palmer attempt to counter the threats posed by Ismaila Sarr and Joao Pedro.

There’s no place in this side for Sam Hutchinson despite the fact he was pictured back in training this week, while Jordan Rhodes continues up top after his brace against the Tykes.
