The Owls are seeking redemption against the Swans following a 3-0 defeat in their last encounter back in September of the previous year.

After an impressive four-game winning streak between mid-February and early March, Sheffield Wednesday faced setbacks with consecutive losses to Leeds United and Ipswich Town, suffering a crushing 6-0 defeat to the latter just before the international break. Manager Danny Rohl faced his heaviest defeat yet, as his team conceded four goals within the first 49 minutes at Portman Road.

Despite their recent struggles, Sheffield Wednesday remains hopeful, sitting just one point away from safety. A victory against Swansea, coupled with favorable results elsewhere, could see them climbing out of the relegation zone.

While Swansea has struggled away from home in recent outings, they aim to replicate their success in their last visit to Hillsborough in April 2021, where they secured a 2-0 victory.
