Match preview: Owls v QPR

30 August 2019

Ahead of the first international break of the season, Wednesday host QPR on Saturday.

The Owls have four wins from their first six games in all competitions.

A much-changed Wednesday side defeated Rotherham 1-0 in midweek to advance in the Carabao Cup, with victories also over Reading, Barnsley and Luton in the Championship.

The two defeats have both come on the road at Millwall and Preston.

QPR have posted two league wins, the first coming on the opening day away at Stoke and more recently at home to Wigan.

But the R’s have lost three of their last four games, with those defeats coming in the Carabao Cup at home to Portsmouth (0-2) and Championship games v Bristol City (2-0) and Swansea (1-3).

Team news

SWFC: Liam Palmer has recovered from a back injury and is available for selection.

Sam Winnall will be assessed on Friday at Middlewood Road after sustaining a head injury in the cup-tie at Rotherham.

The Owls made nine changes for the Millers clash and are likely to mix things up again this weekend.

QPR: Although nearing returns, the trip to Hillsborough is likely to come too soon for Luke Amos, Geoff Cameron and Lee Wallace. Olamide Shodipo’s knee injury will keep the winger out for a further two weeks.

Supporters

Supporters are reminded that the North Stand is currently running at capacity with Season Ticket holders, therefore match by match tickets are not available for this area of the stadium.

This situation will be ongoing until we advise otherwise. Regarding safety measures, there will be no access to the South and North Stands from Leppings Lane and exiting the North Stand is via Penistone Road only.

Penistone Road will be closed on both carriageways from 4.30pm up to an hour after the final whistle on Saturday matchdays, with the same closure in place for midweek games.

The exception are disabled supporters and one carer, who can gain entry from Leppings lane through the blue gate to the South Stand underpass.

Disabled supporters will also be allowed exit onto Leppings Lane at the end of the game from the South Stand underpass but not the North Stand.

Safety

Sheffield Wednesday are reminding supporters of their conduct whilst following the team both at Hillsborough and away from home.

The launching of missiles from the stands, including pyrotechnics, are criminal offences and the club have a zero tolerance policy to these.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-2 QPR

31 August 2019

A quickfire second half double from Jordan Hugill overturned Steven Fletcher’s penalty as Wednesday were beaten at Hillsborough by QPR.

Fletcher’s opener gave the hosts a platform on which to build but try as they might, the Owls couldn’t find their rhythm and paid the price.

Rangers grew into the game, particularly in the second half, and their efforts reaped the reward of a second away success.

The Owls were dealt the first blow of a game to forget as early as the warm-up when skipper Tom Lees was forced to withdraw from the contest before a ball was kicked. Barry Bannan took the armband, but Wednesday did take the mantle from the off.

Adam Reach and Kadeem Harris were causing problems down the flanks, with Fernando Forestieri looking lively on his first start of the season.

And the Argentine was central to the Owls taking the lead on 23 minutes when he was hauled to the ground by Grant Hall in the area and the referee pointed to the spot.

Fletcher stepped up to confidently send Joe Lumley the wrong way from 12 yards.

QPR began to see plenty of the ball themselves but struggled to make any real inroads in the final third until the half-hour mark when Ryan Manning’s free kick brushed the side netting.

Nahki Wells brought a fine near post save from Keiren Westwood before the break but overall the Owls were good value for their half time advantage.

Westwood was called into action again just after the break, darting off his line to save at the feet of Wells, but was beaten on the hour as Rangers levelled.

Wells threaded a fine ball through the Owls defence and Hugill rounded the keeper before calmly slotting home.

Then, three minutes later, the Londoners burst into the lead. Manning ran into space down the left and fed the advancing Hugill, who slotted across Westwood from close range.

Wednesday introduced Massimo Luongo, Jacob Murphy and Atdhe Nuhiu from the bench to ignite a spark going forward and the big man almost produced with nine minutes to go but there was just too much on Bannan’s cross to the back stick.

That really summed up the Owls’ afternoon, one of frustration, losing Lees from the start and their 100% home record by the end.

Wednesday: Westwood, Palmer (Murphy 75), Borner, Iorfa, Fox (Luongo 67), Reach (Nuhiu 75), Hutchinson, Bannan, Harris, Forestieri, Fletcher
