Match preview - Doncaster v Owls

18 February 2022

MATCH DETAILS

Doncaster Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday
Saturday 19 February
3:00pm
Sky Bet League One
Eco-Power Stadium

Following the midweek postponement of our clash with Accrington Stanley at Hillsborough, Wednesday return to action this weekend in another South Yorkshire derby.

The Owls make the short trip to Doncaster on Saturday for the 3.00pm kick-off and will be backed by another sell-out allocation – 4,067 tickets have been sold for the away end at the Eco-Power Stadium.

Darren Moore knows what will be in store this weekend having managed Rovers between 2019 and 2021 before taking charge at Hillsborough. It will be the gaffer’s first return to Doncaster since making the S6 switch.

In terms of the bigger league picture, a win for Wednesday could mean a return to the top six, depending on results elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Rovers picked up a 1-0 win at Lincoln in midweek to keep alive their hopes of League One survival.

It has been a season of struggle for Saturday’s hosts, though two wins from their last four outings has brought renewed confidence to Doncaster, who are six points from safety in 23rd position.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Nathaniel Mendez-Laing picked up a knock in our recent clash with Rotherham and will miss the trip to Doncaster.

Sam Hutchinson is rated at 50-50, striker Lee Gregory will not be risked this weekend, while Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and Josh Windass remain unavailable.

Lewis Gibson, Dominic Iorfa and Chey Dunkley are all back on the training pitches with the squad and making good progress towards their respective returns.

Loanee Harlee Dean is weeks away from a return with the gaffer keen to ensure once fit, the experienced defender remains that way for the run-in.

Tyreece John-Jules is back with Arsenal receiving treatment and is a longer-term injury concern.

Doncaster: Midfielder Ethan Galbraith will not feature on Saturday as the loanee is back with parent club Manchester United suffering with a sciatica problem.

Defender Charlie Seaman (knee) is unlikely to figure against the Owls.

Match Reports

Report: Doncaster 1-3 Wednesday

19 February 2022

Wednesday and Doncaster played out an incident-packed derby at the Eco-Power Stadium and it was the Owls that emerged triumphant, whilst burying an unwanted statistic along the way.

Some six years have passed since Wednesday have come from behind on the road to win but second half goals from substitutes Callum Paterson, Saido Berahino and skipper Barry Bannan overturned Dan Gardner’s penalty to do exactly that.

Bannan missed a penalty himself before finding the target and it mattered not as Darren Moore’s men stormed to victory.

The Owls started well, Bannan fired an early warning shot just over the top and Sylla Sow planted a header straight into the grateful arms of Jonathan Mitchell.

In between, Gardner’s looped drive from distance threatened the Wednesday goal but Bailey Peacock-Farrell dealt with the danger.

That served as Rovers’ most enterprising effort in the final third during a largely one-sided first half – until two minutes before the break when the hosts stole into the lead.

A combination of Massimo Luongo and George Byers sent Kyle Knoyle tumbling to the turf and the referee pointed to the spot.

Gardner stepped up to smash into the top corner, giving Peacock-Farrell no chance from 12 yards.

There was still time for a Bannan corner to panic the Doncaster rearguard, with Mitchell tipping onto his own crossbar and over, preserving the lead at the interval.

The Owls made a double change up top for the second half which would prove key as Paterson and Berahino came on but it was defender Ciaran Brennan who went close moments after the resumption, heading a Jack Hunt corner narrowly wide.

But Rovers hit back and spurned a golden opportunity to double their lead. Ro-Shaun Williams delivered an inviting feed from the right but the advancing Joseph Oluwo fluffed his lines from inside the six-yard box.

And the hosts were almost made to pay for that profligacy when Jordan Storey glanced Marvin Johnson’s cross inches over, before Bannan had Mitchell scurrying across his line but the shot was just off target.

The visitors continued to press and on 70 minutes got their reward. Paterson was thwarted by Mitchell at the first attempt to convert another Johnson cross but the keeper could do nothing to stop the Scot burying the rebound.

But just seven minutes later it was Wednesday’s turn to be wasteful and this time from the penalty spot. Williams handled in the area and again the referee had no hesitation, Bannan went for power and placement but Mitchell, diving to his left, came out on top.

The visiting hoards need not have worried, though, as a two-goal salvo on 80 and 83 minutes sealed the win.

First, Berahino took a feed from fellow substitute Lewis Gibson, span his marker, and slammed high into the net.

Three minutes later the game was all but over. Johnson careered down the left and found the on-rushing Bannan, who atoned for his penalty miss with a deft half volley that put the Owls on the cusp of the top six.

Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell, Hunt, Brennan (Gibson 71), Storey, Palmer, Byers, Luongo, Bannan, Sow (Paterson 46), Kamberi (Berahino 46)
