A Yorkshire derby, but not quite as we know it. The East Riding Tigers against the South Yorkshire Owls has significance at both ends of the table with Liam Rosenior and Danny Röhl knowing that kicking off 2024 with a win could be vital for retaining the momentum for their respective challenges.
Rosenior has reinvigorated the Hull team by being able to use the tools provided by the recent new ownership and organising them into a highly effective unit. They are solid all over the pitch and have that mixture of youth and experience, and domestic and foreign talent, that is putting them in a really interesting spot going into the new year.
Surely Sheffield Wednesday fans and Dejphon Chansiri must be thinking: if only Danny Röhl had been given the chance to manage the Owls in the summer. The young German coach has managed to change the momentum and show the game style that he would’ve wanted to employ, and whilst it would be over the top to suggest that results have been ideal, Wednesday have picked up points to put pressure on the teams above them.
This is going to be an interesting tactical encounter and whilst both managers will be looking to their owners and recruitment teams to give them some help in January to power them closer to their goals, both also have the ability to use their current tools really effectively.

⚽️ Match stats: Sheffield Wednesday on a Röhl but Rosenior showing consistency with Tigers
⚽ Hull double chance @ 1.30
🎯 Shooting stats: Hull amongst the top shooters in the division
Hull have four different players with 6 goals or more but none in double figures. The goalscoring responsibilities are shared around the forward unit, but, as mentioned above, Hull create a lot of shooting opportunities.
Jaden Philogene-Bidace has been missing through injury recently, but before that he had been putting in consistently threatening performances from the left. Liam Delap has improved markedly under Rosenior from his disappointing 2022/23 loan spells and is currently being deployed from the right to accommodate the goalscoring talents of Aaron Connolly.
The absence of Philogene has also allowed experienced Turkish international Ozan Tufan the chance to make an advanced midfield position his own, and it is he who fires off the most shots on average when he plays.
Wednesday’s shot threat has been few and far between, but the introduction of Bailey-Tye Cadamarteri to their attack has really helped to change the dynamic. The teenager leads Wednesday’s shot production with 2.5 per 90, the problem is that no one else comes close to that total. Marvin Johnson, at left wing-back is the next highest regular starter at 1.58 per 90.
⚽ Hull to have 4+ shots on target @ 1.57
⚽ Ozan Tufan to have 1+ shot on target @ 1.80
🚩 Corners stats: Low corner expectation when Sheffield Wednesday are at home and Hull away
When the Owls play at home there has been the lowest number of corners per match of any other home ground in the competition with an average of 8.83. Wednesday just about edge it in terms of earning more than their opponents, but it is not a substantial lead.
Wednesday should be slight favourites in the market though as Hull follow the usual trend of conceding more corners on their travels than they manage to earn themselves. However, again, the corner expectation is below ten in total for Hull on their travels, earning only around four.
Therefore, the corner match bet market is our port of call.
⚽ Sheffield Wednesday corner match bet @ 1.87
🛑 Fouls & Cards stats: Sheff Wed amongst worst offenders in the Championship
Sheffield Wednesday’s propensity for red cards has gone against them so far this season but they are also up there for fouls and yellow cards.
Wednesday have five players with five or more cautions, which can make it difficult to single out individuals as potential targets for booking bets, but an interesting player in the market is George Byers. The midfielder has 23 fouls this season, just one fewer than Wednesday’s leader Callum Paterson, but has collected only one booking so far.
Hull, despite not being quite so consistent in picking up cautions, do have a group of players who get themselves noticed by the referees more often than others. Jean-Michael Seri and Jacob Greaves have seven yellows each and Liam Delap has five, those three are Hull’s most common foulers.
However, Lewie Coyle is in fourth for fouls but so far has picked up only two yellow cards and could be a value alternative for a bet builder.
⚽ Lewie Coyle to be shown a card @ 3.40
⚽ Liam Delap to commit 1+ foul @ 1.36
⚽ Liam Delap to commit 2+ fouls @ 2.70
