Wolves v Sheffield Wednesday

Saturday 29 September 2012
3.00pm kick-off

The Owls' away allocation has completely sold out for this fixture and no tickets will be made available on the day. Supporters without tickets shoud not travel to Molineux.

Team news

Owls: Rhys McCabe (thigh) and Lewis Buxton (hamstring) are set to miss out this weekend, meanwhile Reda Johnson (foot) may be back in contention.

Midfield man Chris Lines continues to make good progress from a groin injury sustained in pre-season but will again miss out on Saturday.

Otherwise, Owls boss Dave Jones is likely to make changes from the side defeated 2-0 by Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

Wolves: Manager Stale Solbakken will almost certainly revert back to a more familiar line-up following his side's 6-0 thumping at Chelsea in the midweek Capital One cup-tie.

Former Owls loanee Danny Batth will be hoping to make his first league appearance of the season for Wolves.

In other news, George Elokobi has left Molineux this week to join Bristol City on a three-month emergency loan deal.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "We are not that far away. But if we continue to give goals away, we will not win football matches. We will pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and go again at Wolves on Saturday.” 

Stale Solbakken: It wasn't a good feeling after losing 6-0 but if we can get a result against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday I will be fine. It won’t affect the players, we were been beaten by the European Champions.”
