Match preview: Owls v Wigan

4 October 2019

After back to back away fixtures, the Owls return to Hillsborough on Saturday.

Wigan Athletic are the visitors and will arrive in S6 in good spirits after winning two games from their previous three in the Championship.

The Latics endured a difficult start to the new campaign. After defeating Cardiff on the opening day, Paul Cook’s side went on to lose five consecutive fixtures – four in the Championship and one in the Carabao Cup.

The recent wins came over Charlton (2-0) and Birmingham (1-0) at the DW Stadium. Away from home, the Latics have won just one of their previous 27 games.

Wednesday will be looking to bounce back from defeat at Hull in midweek.

The Owls have won five of their last six meetings with Wigan.

Team news

SWFC: Sam Hutchinson is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season away at Hull on Tuesday.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-0 Wigan

5 October 2019

Massimo Luongo’s maiden goal for the Owls was enough to beat Wigan at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The Australian ace struck in the second half to give Wednesday a deserved three points having dominated the game.

Barry Bannan hit the woodwork before Luongo’s decisive strike but when the breakthrough came it was fully merited to ensure a return to winning ways for Garry Monk’s men.

Wigan’s vulnerability on the road was evidenced as early as the second minute when Luongo shot narrowly wide and Steven Fletcher followed suit moments later.

The Latics soaked up the pressure and went close themselves on the quarter of an hour mark as Keiren Westwood denied Gavin Massey before Julian Borner hooked the rebound off the line from the same player.

But Wigan were soon back under the cosh and only a brave and well-timed block from Antonee Robinson stopped a Fletcher volley arrowing in.

The Owls turned the screw even further as half time approached and were a whisker away from taking the lead on 39 minutes but Bannan’s curling effort from distance struck the frame of the goal.

The second half saw a similar theme as Wednesday bossed possession and they were rewarded on 56 minutes.

Kadeem Harris’ cross caused problems in the Wigan defence and the ball landed at the feet of Reach, who teed up Luongo to slam past David Marshall.

The Owls had their tails up and Bannan beat Marshall from range but also the far post.

While the lead was slender, though, the Latics had the capability to break and this they did on 70 minutes, with a rare sortie upfield leading to Keiffer Moore forcing a fabulous save from Westwood, who tipped the substitute’s header onto the crossbar.

Fletcher had the ball in the net at the other end but a linesman’s flag cut the celebrations short and there was to be no further boost for the Latics as Wednesday enter the international break on a high.

Wednesday: Westwood, Odubajo, Iorfa, Borner, Palmer, Reach (Murphy 80), Bannan, Luongo (Lee 75), Pelupessy, Harris, Fletcher (Nuhiu 89)
