Match preview: Blackburn v Wednesday

30 November 2018

The Owls travel to Blackburn in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday and here is swfc.co.uk’s match preview:

Wednesday will be looking to build on the midweek victory over Bolton.

Tom Lees’ second half goal against the Trotters sealed a first win in seven for Jos Luhukay’s side.

Blackburn head into the Ewood Park clash without a win in three and have lost in their previous two outings away at Preston and Wigan.

On home soil, Rovers have won three, drawn five and lost just one game.

Team news

Owls: Steven Fletcher was withdrawn from action early against Bolton on Tuesday after suffering a head injury.

The striker will be assessed following Friday’s training session.

Ash Baker will miss out through suspension with the right back picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 1-0 win over Bolton.

Blackburn: Darragh Lenihan is a doubt (hip), while Elliott Bennett returns from a one-match suspension.
