Wednesday back in action

11 September 2014

The Owls head to Bolton this weekend as Sky Bet Championship action resumes after the international break.

While Bolton are seeking their first league win of the season, Stuart Gray’s men will of course be out to continue their promising start, which took place during the first month of the campaign.

Wednesday go into this fixture as the form side having accumulated eight points from the opening five Championship outings.

After overcoming Notts County and Burnley in the Capital One Cup, the Owls also have a third round cup-tie with Manchester City on the horizon.

Bolton, on the other hand, have endured a tough start to the season and sit in the bottom three with one point that came from their 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest on home soil.

Other results have included defeats to Watford (3-0), Middlesbrough (1-2), Brighton (2-1) and Leeds (1-0).

The Whites have, however, advanced in the League Cup with extra time wins over Bury and Crewe.

The Owls’ last two visits to Bolton have yielded four points for Wednesday.

Last time out, the points were shared in a 1-1 draw in a game that saw the visitors reduced to ten men late in the contest when Jose Semedo was dismissed.

Prior to that, Mamady Sidibe secured all three points for the Owls on Boxing Day 2012 as Wednesday emerged 1-0 winners.
