Match preview: Owls v QPR

2 October 2020

The Owls are back at Hillsborough for only the second time this season after five away games from six to start 2020/21.

QPR are the visitors on Saturday and will arrive in S6 with a mixed bag of results so far.

The R’s began their season with a Carabao Cup defeat away at Plymouth and have since posted a win, a draw and defeat in the Championship.

The win came at home to Nottingham Forest (2-0), which was followed by a defeat at Coventry in front of the Sky cameras (3-2) and a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough last week.

League-wise, it’s a similar story for Wednesday, with a win, draw and defeat after last Sunday’s 2-0 loss at Bristol City, though Wednesday posted victories in rounds one and two of the Carabao Cup.

The sides last met as recently as July, when Garry Monk’s side picked up a 3-0 win over the R’s at Loftus Road.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the game;

TEAM NEWS

Callum Paterson is eligible to make his debut for the club having completed his switch from Cardiff City this week.

One or two niggles aside, nobody is ruled out in terms of the game at the weekend.

Osaze Urhoghide has stepped up his recovery with minutes for the Under-23s, who are set to face Birmingham on Monday and Urhoghide is expected to play.

Regarding Chey Dunkley, Monk provided another positive update, saying:

“Chey went to see a specialist for a regular check with his injury and he was delighted with it. He has had pins removed which was always part of the process. He’s had a couple days off it to recover from that mini surgery and should be on the grass pitches today (Thursday)."

QPR: Seny Dieng is expected to start in goal, with doubts over the future of Joe Lumley.

The R’s have added to their frontline ahead of the trip to Hillsborough with the signing of Macauley Bonne on a three-year deal from Charlton.

Owls boss Garry Monk on QPR: “As a manager, everybody expects you win games and that's the life of a manager. You have to work in the best way you can and put your team in a place to win games. QPR have experienced Championship players and on their day they can be very dangerous.”

QPR manager Mark Warburton said: “I’m stating the obvious but I know Sheffield Wednesday will be very focused on Saturday. They got beat last week at Bristol City but should have been two up in the first half so will maybe feel hard done by but they’ll be ready for Saturday. They are a very good team, they have pace and power up top, experience in midfield, passing range, physicality at the back and pace on the wings. We know what we face.”

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-1 QPR

3 October 2020

A second half own goal by Yoann Barbet appeared to give Wednesday a valuable win against QPR at Hillsborough – before substitute Macauley Bonne salvaged a point deep into stoppage time.

Both sides hit the woodwork and both would argue their case for the points but Barbet managed to reverse his fortune as his cross fed debutant Bonne for the equaliser.

Right throughout the contest until the very end, Rangers could not penetrate Wednesday’s defence that suffered a blow when Liam Shaw succumbed to injury in just the third minute.

Liam Palmer made a far swifter introduction than anticipated although he too would pick up a knock that dictated an exit at half time.

The contest developed into an even affair in driving S6 rain, with chances at a premium.

Barbet miscued on the volley from a corner, which represented the best opening of the early exchanges at both ends.

Then from the other side of the park 35 minutes in, another corner caused problems in the Owls’ backline and QPR came within a lick of paint of the lead.

Ilais Chair’s delivery was menacing and skipper Geoff Cameron flicked onto the inside of the post before the ball rolled into the grateful arms of Cameron Dawson.

New recruit Callum Paterson had a snapshot on the turn deflected wide as Wednesday sought the opener and moments before half time Josh Windass was sent clear by Adam Reach but Rob Dickie recovered well to block.

When Palmer failed to emerge for the second half it may have been seen as one of those days for Wednesday but they pressed on in pursuit of the breakthrough.

Barry Bannan forced Seny Dieng into a near post save as Garry Monk’s men were brighter after the break, and they got their reward on 55 minutes.

Bannan opened up the R’s rearguard with a fine ball to Reach, whose low feed was poked into his own goal by the unfortunate Barbet.

Provider Reach turned hunter on the hour with his side’s tails up, firing a fierce volley goalwards from a Kadeem Harris cross that Dieng did well to parry.

But the Londoners refused to buckle and committed bodies forward in pursuit of an equaliser. Tom Lees and Joost van Aken made crucial stops in the box before Wednesday broke and Massimo Luongo crashed against the crossbar with five minutes to go.

A second goal would have been decisive but as events transpired, Luongo’s hit was a mini turning point.

The R’s headed back upfield and Bonne made an immediate impact for his new employers with a late, late leveller from Barbet’s deep cross.

Wednesday: Dawson, Shaw (Palmer 3, Odubajo 46), Lees, van Aken, Harris, Reach, Bannan, Dele-Bashiru (Pelupessy 69), Luongo, Paterson, Windass
