Plymouth v Wednesday
Wednesday 25 October
It’s our longest trip of the season on Wednesday night as the Owls squad get set for the 600-mile round trip to Plymouth.
Both sides have found the going tough since promotion to the Championship in 2022/23.
Last season’s League One champions Plymouth have fared better so far in the tier above having amassed 12 points from 12 games, including wins over Huddersfield, Blackburn and Norwich.
Those victories have all come at Home Park, while Argyle have drawn three and lost three of their six away fixtures.
For Wednesday, the hunt for our first win of the season continues after a narrow defeat at Watford on Saturday.
It was an improved performance at Vicarage Road for Danny Röhl’s first game in charge but a late strike from Yaser Asprilla earned maximum points for the Hornets.
Wednesday: The Owls have no fresh injury or suspension concerns following the trip to Vicarage Road.
Bambo Diaby, Akin Famewo, Barry Bannan and Josh Windass returned to the starting XI on Saturday.
Momo Diaby and Juan Delgado remain sidelined.
Ashley Fletcher was ineligible to face his parent club at the weekend but is an option for Wednesday night.
Callum Paterson and Windass remain one caution away from a suspension.
Plymouth: First choice goalkeeper Michael Cooper made his return to action on Saturday in Argyle’s 0-0 draw at West Brom.
Cooper suffered serious ligament damage during Plymouth’s trip to Hillsborough last season and missed the remaining 17 games of the 2022/23 season. The goalkeeper made his first start since February at the weekend and is expected to line up again in midweek.
Defenders Brendan Galloway and Saxon Earley and midfielder Callum Wright remain sidelined.
Following the passing of England and Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton, there will be a minute’s applause across all EFL fixtures and players will wear black armbands.
Referee: James Linington
Assistant: Andrew Fox

The EFL, Premier League, FA, FSA, PGMOL, LMA and PFA have come together this season to implement a series of measures to address behaviour across the game.
