Owls v Millwall match preview

22 August 2018

Sheffield Wednesday host Millwall this evening at Hillsborough in the Sky Bet Championship.

Preview

The Owls are searching for their first league victory of the campaign.

Jos Luhukay’s side posted their first win of the season in the Carabao Cup last Thursday, defeating Sunderland 2-0 at The Stadium of Light.

In the Championship, Wednesday have tasted defeat twice on the road at Wigan and Brentford, while drawing 1-1 with Hull in the only game of the campaign so far at Hillsborough.

Millwall head to S6 aiming to extend their unbeaten start to the season.

The Lions drew their first two league outings, at home to Middlesbrough and away at Blackburn before defeating Derby last weekend at The Den.

Neil Harris’ side also advanced in the Carabao Cup defeating Gillingham on penalties after a 0-0 stalemate on home soil.

Team news:

Owls: Defender Joost van Aken is awaiting results from a recent scan and has been ruled out of the homes games with Millwall and Ipswich.

Morgan Fox (back) could make his return to action, while the game is likely to come too soon for Lucas Joao (groin).

Adam Reach (knee) missed the Owls’ trip to Brentford on Sunday, suffering injury in the warm-up but could make a swift return to action this evening.

Millwall: The Lions have no injury concerns ahead of tonight’s S6 clash and are expected to name the same side that has started all three Championship games so far.
