TEAM NEWS

SWFC: Izzy Brown will be pushing for a return to the side having missed the Owls’ last two outings through a minor injury but has now returned to training.

Tom Lees (groin) and Liam Shaw (ankle) are unlikely to be available for selection. The game could come a tad too soon for Dominic Iorfa (hamstring).

Loan duo Aden Flint and Jack Marriott could make their first appearances at Hillsborough for Wednesday.

Brentford: Emiliano Marcondes and Ivan Toney suffered minor knocks and left the action early on Saturday as they defeated Coventry 2-0 at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Frank confirmed after the game the pair received contact injuries but both are expected to be involved at Hillsborough.

Ahead of a busy schedule, Franks said: “It won’t be squad rotation, and not 90 minutes for specific players, but something in between and hopefully some early subs. I have told the squad that everyone will need to be ready and I trust them when they need to step in.”

Owls boss ahead of Brentford: “The importance of performing is on everyone, whether you’re a young lad making your debut or a senior lad that has played 300 or 400 games, because of the situation we’re in. Normally, as a manager, you’d let certain things ride and you’d let them go through them for a period. We don’t have that luxury as much this season, we have to get as many points as possible.”

Brentford manager Thomas Frank said: "I feel there is more to come from the team. We are on a good path, but I expect there is more to come from us when we get the engine going. I am fairly pleased with the performances, but I want more. I have the biggest respect for Sheffield Wednesday. I think they are one of the strongest teams in the division. Five games, only one loss, three goals conceded; they look very solid.”

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-2 Brentford

21 October 2020

An end to end contest at Hillsborough ended in favour of Brentford, who emerged triumphant by the odd goal in three.

Man of the moment Ivan Toney scored both goals in the first half, taking his tally to seven with the season barely six weeks old.

Toney was a constant menace and proved his big-money summer transfer credentials with a decisive display.

Callum Paterson posted his first goal in Wednesday colours, cancelling out Toney’s first, but the latter promptly doubled his tally to ultimately seal the win.

The in-form striker got the Bees off to the perfect start, netting inside seven minutes.

Henrik Dalsgaard unleashed a fierce shot from range that Cameron Dawson did well to parry, but only as far as Toney, who slammed home on the angle to open the scoring.

The former Peterborough man hit into the side netting 10 minutes later but the hosts were undaunted and applied the pressure themselves.

Adam Reach brought a fine near post save from David Raya before Brentford motored upfield and Bryan Mbeumo curled just over the bar.

A goal was coming and it went the way of Wednesday on 27 minutes. Kadeem Harris picked out Paterson on the edge of the six-yard box and the Scottish striker glanced past Raya with some aplomb.

But just three minutes passed before the Londoners were back in front. Vitaly Janelt swung a corner into the danger zone and that man Toney stooped to head into the back of the Kop net.

And the Bees were in the mood to add to their tally before half time. Dawson was off his line sharply to thwart Mathias Jensen, then Dalsgaard was not too far off with a blistering drive from distance.

The Owls came out for the second half with the bit between their teeth and put the visitors’ defence under scrutiny.

The Bees stood up to the challenge, though, with a solid platform at the back. And that should have been the base for a Toney treble on 68 minutes when Brentford launched a dangerous counter.

Substitute Sergi Canos pulled back for the loitering striker but this time Toney’s accuracy was absent and the ball flew the wrong side of the post.

Josh Dasilva tried his luck and flashed across Dawson as Brentford sought a killer third goal but it was largely Wednesday through the closing stages.

Time and again they probed, particularly down the flanks, but the Bees’ defenders held firm to guide their side to victory.

Wednesday: Dawson, Harris, Odubajo, Flint, van Aken, Reach, Bannan, Hunt (Pelupessy 46), Windass (Dele-Bashiru 51), Marriott (Rhodes 72), Paterson
