Earlier In The Season: SWFC [0]-[0] BHAFC (3/11/16);

It was a tough game earlier in the season at Hillsbrough, but it ended in a 0-0 draw, with both defences on top. Expect more of the same again.


In the 15 games played between the 2 Brighton have won 3, with Wednesday winning 6. Brighton haven’t beaten the Owls since September 2013, and have since lost 3 and drew 3 while only scoring 2 goals in that time. The previous 2 games have finished 0-0, but with both teams in good goal-scoring form and wanting to cement their position in the table, there might be a few goals in the game.

Likely Line-Up;


Bruno, Goldson, Dunk, Rosenior;

Baldock, Hemed;


Brighton 1-0 Sheff Wed
