Owls v Wolves match preview

28 August 2018

Sheffield Wednesday turn their attention back to the Carabao Cup this evening at Hillsborough.

Having defeated Sunderland 2-0 at The Stadium of Light in the first round, Wolves are next-up in the competition and here’s all you need to know ahead of the game.

PREVIEW

The Owls head in to the game on the back of two successive league wins on home soil, with Jos Luhukay’s squad picking up victories over Millwall and Ipswich.

In what has been a busy start to the campaign, Wednesday host their third game in six days with Premier League side Wolves making the trip for the Carabao Cup clash.

Wolves enter the competition at this second round stage.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side held Premier League champions Manchester City at the weekend, drawing 1-1.

Willy Boly gave Wolves a second half lead before Aymeric Laporte equalised for the visitors.

Beginning the season with an entertaining 2-2 draw v Everton, Wolves were defeated 2-0 next time out away at Leicester but can reflect positively on their return to the top flight thus far.

TEAM NEWS:

Owls: Manager Jos Luhukay has confirmed that Fraser Preston will be available for this evening’s cup clash.

The 19-year-old made his full debut last Wednesday as the Owls defeated Millwall 2-1, but missed the victory over Ipswich on Saturday.

Luhukay made seven changes for the first round clash against Sunderland and is likely to shuffle his pack again this evening.

Wolves: New boy Leander Dendoncker could make his debut against the Owls having failed to make the squad against either Leicester or Manchester City.

There are no fresh injuries for the Molineux side with Ivan Cavaleiro (back) the only notable absentee.
