Match preview: QPR v Owls

9 April 2021

The Owls head to the capital this weekend to face Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

There have been plenty of positives from our recent performances that have produced wins over Barnsley and Cardiff, and manager Darren Moore is looking for that consistency to remain for the rest of the campaign.

Wednesday stunned the Bluebirds with a 5-0 victory in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Easter Monday and now head to QPR looking to build on that excellent display.

The R’s are the next challenge and they head into the game in mixed form.

Last time out, Mark Warburton’s side were defeated 3-1 away at Nottingham Forest but have won their previous two games at home against Millwall (3-2) and Coventry (3-0).

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game:

Van Aken also played 45 minutes for the Under-23s last week in their 3-0 win over Hull.

The Owls boss says the duo now need that volume of training under their belts to edge closer to a first team return.

Keiren Westwood is back to full fitness having recovered from a rib injury, while the Owls boss is hopeful Chey Dunkley can make a return from the sidelines before the season is out.

QPR: In a big blow to the R’s ahead of the game, striker Charlie Austin has been handed a three-match ban for violent conduct following a clash with Ryan Yates during their 3-1 defeat to Forest.

A stamp on the midfielder was not picked up by the match officials and a charge was later issued on the basis of video evidence.

Match Reports

Report: QPR 4-1 Wednesday

10 April 2021

There was no capital gain for Wednesday as they went down 4-1 to QPR at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

A Lyndon Dykes brace caused the bulk of the damage, with Stefan Johansen and Chris Willock also on the scoresheet to leave the Owls in grave danger towards the foot of the Championship.

Josh Windass added to his tally but despite being the better team for long periods, Wednesday left London empty handed.

After Willock brought Joe Wildsmith into action at his near post inside three minutes, the Owls really settled into the contest, imposing their passing games on the hosts.

Rangers keeper Seny Dieng got a vital touch to Liam Palmer’s cross 10 minutes in, from which Jordan Rhodes was waiting to pounce.

The Owls players converged in the box from a Barry Bannan corner were adamant Dieng connected with Tom Lees as well as the ball but the R’s were awarded a free kick.

And from the next meaningful attack on 27 minutes, QPR took the lead. Yoann Barbet swung over a delicious cross deep from the left and Dykes positioned himself well to glance into the far corner.

But the lead would last only three minutes as Wednesday deservedly drew level with a sublime reply.

Bannan worked possession wide to Adam Reach, who touched inside for the marauding Windass to expertly finish beyond Dieng with the outside of his boot.

From that point on it was all Wednesday for the remainder of the first half - Windass shot down the throat of Dieng almost on the whistle – and Rangers could count themselves fortunate to head down the tunnel on terms.

And fortune was on the R’s side five minutes after the resumption when the lead was restored. Johansen’s curling effort from the edge of the penalty area was covered by Wildsmith before a wicked deflection off Osaze Urhoghide diverted the ball into the back of the net.

The Owls needed a second response and Rhodes was a fraction away from converting a Reach cross.

But just as the visitors looked to be forging a route back into the contest, Rangers scored a third. A hanging cross from Rob Dickie was nodded back across goal by Willock and Dykes applied the finishing touch to give the Owls a mountain to climb.

They did take the game back to Rangers – Windass saw a vicious drive deflected wide and when Dieng palmed into his own net from the resulting corner, the goal was disallowed for a foul on the keeper.

The Owls made a triple change with 20 minutes to go and one of the substitutes, Elias Kachunga, was thwarted right in front of goal by Dickie.

Windass went close with a rasping drive from distance before the scoreline was given a rather flattering look in stoppage time.

Substitute George Thomas burst down the left and played an inviting feed for Willock, who made no mistake from six yards to conclude a crushing blow to the Owls’ survival hopes.

Wednesday: Wildsmith, Palmer, Urhoghide (Harris 71), Lees, Börner, Reach, Hutchinson (Pelupessy 83), Bannan, Paterson (Green 71), Windass, Rhodes (Kachunga 71)
