Match preview: Owls v Wigan

7 February 2022

Sky Bet League One
Hillsborough

The Owls are in strong form ahead of the home clash with Wigan after posting a third win on the bounce at the weekend over Burton.

It was the first time since August that Darren Moore’s side have notched three consecutive league wins and a first away triumph since our trip to Crewe in mid-December.

Visiting sides have found the going tough at Hillsborough this season as Wednesday vie for a fourth successive win in S6 on Tuesday night. This season we have won eight, drawn four and lost just once on home soil.

Wigan, though, boast the strongest record in League One when it comes to away days.

The Latics have won a league-high 10 games on the road this season and have lost just once on their travels – an opening day 2-1 defeat at Sunderland.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: There were no fresh injury concerns following our 2-0 win at Burton on Saturday.

The gaffer indicated after the victory at the Pirelli Stadium that he would have a similar squad for selection on Tuesday at Hillsborough.

Harlee Dean, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and Josh Windass all picked up injuries in the win over Morecambe at Hillsborough last week and are unlikely to be available.

Lee Gregory (toe) is also unlikely to be fit in time for the Wigan fixture.

Wigan: The Latics are expected to be without top scorer and ex-Owls loanee Will Keane, Jordan Cousins and Tom Pearce due to injuries.

Gwion Edwards serves a one-match suspension and will miss the trip to Hillsborough.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-0 Wigan

8 February 2022

The Owls put a dent in the best away record in the division and posted a fourth successive win along the way.

Barry Bannan’s second half penalty was enough to dismantle automatic promotion contenders Wigan, who arrived at Hillsborough with 10 victories on the road this season.

And that number was unmoved as the Owls, defending one of the best home returns, took another step towards the coveted top six.

Wednesday had the better of the opening exchanges, playing neat, composed football but could have fallen behind nine minutes in.

Tom Naylor ghosted into the box and had a clear sight of goal from a Josh Magennis nod back but skewed wide on the volley.

It was a let-off for Wednesday, who almost made the Latics pay moments later when Jordan Storey was inches away from converting Jack Hunt’s curling corner.

The first half developed into an even affair, with the next chance falling to the visitors. Naylor crossed for the advancing Magennis but the ball was slightly behind the striker, who arched to head over the bar.

Back came the Owls and after Bannan cleverly played in Marvin Johnson on the angle, keeper Ben Amos parried straight into Florian Kamberi and was relieved to see the ball land just past the post off the Albanian.

So too was Bailey Peacock-Farrell at the other end three minutes before the break, albeit the Owls’ shot-stopper could do little to divert a thunderous drive from Magennis that cannoned back into play off the upright. Tendayi Darikwa prodded home the rebound but the celebrations were short-lived as the assistant referee’s flag went up.

There was no stopping Wednesday joy, though, as they took the lead from the spot seven minutes into the second 45. A wonderfully intricate build-up culminated in Jack Whatmough tripping Massimo Luongo and up stepped Bannan to fire the penalty past Amos.

Kamberi swivelled to narrowly miss the target as the Owls sought a second and it nearly came via a Bannan corner as Storey’s header brushed the top of the woodwork.

Callum Paterson’s swerved a teasing shot wide before Bannan was denied a second goal by the fingertips of Amos, who leapt to glance over the top.

Wigan were on the back foot but only a goal down and threw bodies forward in search of an equaliser.

But the Owls, in a rich vein of form, displayed increased calm and game management to see out the game on top and post what could prove a hugely significant win.

Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell, Hunt, Storey, Hutchinson, Palmer, Johnson, Byers, Luongo, Bannan (Brennan 90), Paterson, Kamberi (Mendez-Laing 76)
