We haven't beaten that lot since 2011 (I think?), so ordinarily I'd go for a comfortable home win here...

But this season seems to be one of things evening themselves out. Fulham were long overdue a win against us which they got, Preston were long overdue a win against us which they got but also we were long overdue a win against Birmingham which we finally got.

For that reason, I'm going for a surprising away victory for the Bees, 0-2 :) Jozefzoon to get his first for the club and Vibe to get the other.

I'll clutch at our good Tuesday night form. 1-1 Jota. 280 Bees in attendance.

SW played Saturday and they have an apparent local derby against Leeds this Saturday. They have a big squad, so expect some rotation. We now have some speed in the side, so it could be an opportunity to get a point or three if we can defend.

Quite right Sir. Sheff W 10/11 is seriously tormenting me.

Hopefully DS has been drilling our back four to play in a line and when either Colin or Field go forward make sure that the space they leave behind them is covered properly by a midfielder dropping in to cover and not by pulling our CBs all over the place. Wednesday are on a roll a the moment and whilst we can cause them problems unless we are solid at the back we will get stuffed up there. However, there is often a game which goes against form and this could be the one, a spot of Wednesday complacency and we play to our strengths and decisions go our way, who knows? I go for a cautious 1-1 (Canos) with us scoring first.

Rose tinted specs will see us get 2-3 win, Jota and Vibe x2. However if I was a betting man (with any decent form) I would go for a 2-2 draw. We must surely get a ref to be on our side, it's about time and it's this game!

Darren Bond, tomorrow's referee, has reffed us 3 times in the last 3 seasons, including Leeds away this season. We've lost them all and haven't even scored a goal.

If we can get a win we will have 40 points. Exactly the same as after 32 games last season....then we were 14 points away from third bottom.....can only see a 2-0 home win here.

No I don't think that's on, the target I want is 54 points. A few years back Peterborough went down with 56 points
54 and that's the highest since the Championship started.

PS The average for third bottom is 45. Corrected. Hanworthbee right.

Peterborough went down with 54 points. You're obviously expecting Wigan and Blackburn to suddenly go on title winning form runs. We won't even need 50 points imo.

Over the last 10 seasons the third bottom team has averaged 45 points (44.8) with the highest being 54 and the lowest being 40

Agree but there will doubtless be wailing if Bees lose. albeit away to a team 20+ points better off.

Of course............. A loss and thats the norm. SW are a good side and not an easy ground to play at. They will have their tails up and have a real chance to go up this season.

We all know an away win is very unlikely (3/1 with bookies) but if we did do it wouldn't surprise me all that much as we've been so up and down all season.

Well, we can only go on current form. It will be difficult for us to stop them scoring and I'm not sure we can match their goal rate. Heart is hoping but head says loss.

Cannot see anything but a home win, not to say that is what it will be. SW to score 2 or 3, without reply.

2-0 Owls. A draw would be a great result...a victory and promotion is back on

Maybe when we're the big club against, errr, Burton, we will get the ref on side!

Our game in hand, so we need something out of it.
Somebody remind Dean......keeping a clean sheet is not against the rules!
So, 0-0

I can't see us getting anything at Wednesday, starting to be a bit concerned only two home games in March, it was one until Wolves game was moved,
makes 3 points against Rotherham look very important.
