Sheffield Wednesday win

Sheffield Wednesday vs Hartlepool: EFL Trophy Match Preview
Sheffield Wednesday have the important task of getting back to the Championship after relegation last summer. After having gone through a bad defence of patch of form over the last few weeks, Wednesday will ideally see the home match against Hartlepool as an opportunity to rediscover their form going forward and at the back.
After a brilliant first half to the season, Hartlepool are showing signs of trouble and the team has dropped to the lowest point of the campaign following the defeat against Port Vale. Avoiding more dropped points will be crucial for the club in their efforts to stay in the football league.
