Match preview: Derby v Wednesday

2 December 2022

Derby v Wednesday

Saturday 3 December
League One
Pride Park


We make the trip to Derby for the early kick-off at Pride Park on Saturday.

It’s a meeting of two sides expected to be in the League One promotion mix come the end of the season.

For the Owls, our league form has been outstanding with just one defeat from our previous 10 outings.


Darren Moore’s side have cut the gap in third position to just one point off the automatic promotion spots and three from leaders Plymouth.

The Rams are on a positive run too, without a League One loss since late October in a tough trip to Ipswich.

In terms of league standings, Paul Warne’s side are eighth, one point away from the play-off spots.


Wednesday: Michael Ihiekwe and Lee Gregory look set to be sidelined at Pride Park after sustaining impact injuries last weekend.

George Byers is making good progress but will not be available for the Rams clash.

Akin Famewo (muscle) is rapidly closing in on a return to action. The defender has been out since our 1-0 win over MK Dons in August.

Josh Windass sat out last weekend’s cup clash with Mansfield and could come back into contention.

Derby: Defender James Chester (calf) will miss Saturday’s game.

Skipper Curtis Davies (knee), Haydon Roberts (hamstring) and ex-Owl Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (hamstring) are in contention after returning from injury.

Former Owl Joe Wildsmith will line up between the sticks for the Rams.




Referee: Dean Whitestone
Assistant referee 1: Daniel Leach
Assistant referee 2: Matthew Smith
Fourth official: Benjamin Speedie

Match Reports

Report: Derby 0-0 Wednesday

3 December 2022

These two League One heavyweights have battled out some memorable head-to-heads down the years – alas this was not one as Derby and Wednesday posted a goalless draw.

The point for the Owls, though, is another step in the right direction, particularly following the favourable results on Friday night.

They had to grind this one out on a bitter Pride Park afternoon, where talking points were few.

Indeed, a low key first half passed almost entirely without incident. David Stockdale had his hands warmed by a David McGoldrick long ranger but that aside, Derby failed to trouble the Owls’ backline.


The reverse was true at the other end in fairness, where ex-Wednesday keeper Joe Wildsmith remained a virtual spectator.

Play was scrappy, with no real fluency from either side through the thirds.

The second half needed an uplift to warm the hands of freezing fans as temperatures plummeted in the Midlands.

And there was more zip to the game after the restart, with the Rams pushing for ascendancy in front of a vocal home crowd.


Darren Moore changed his front two on the hour in a bid to make the ball stick in the final third and the pendulum did nudge more towards the visitors.

On 64 minutes, the Owls came close to a breakthrough. Fisayo Dele-Bashiru showed skill and determination to swivel his marker in the box and shoot but Wildsmith was equal to the low drive.

The closing stages were played out in similar fashion to most of the game, with neither side able to take any consistent authority, leading to a stalemate that was probably the right result.

Wednesday: Stockdale, Palmer, Iorfa, McGuinness, James, Vaulks, Dele-Bashiru, Bannan, Johnson, Mighten (Paterson 59), Smith (Wilks 59)
