Match preview: Bristol City v Wednesday

5 October 2018

The Owls are back on the road this Sunday (1.30pm) travelling to Bristol City and ahead of the Ashton Gate clash, here is swfc.co.uk’s match preview;

Wednesday head to Bristol with just one defeat in their last eight league games.

Following the win away at Aston Villa two weeks ago, Jos Luhukay’s side have drawn both home games with Leeds and West Brom.

The Robins, meanwhile, have gone four games without a win in the Championship, losing back to back games v West Brom (a) and Wigan (a) and picking up draws with Aston Villa (h) and Rotherham (a).

Wednesday and Bristol City head into the game both on 16 points from 11 league outings.

Team news:

Owls: Barry Bannan is back available for selection having served his one-match ban.

Josh Onomah was withdrawn on 82 minutes against West Brom with a minor knock but is available for Sunday.

Sam Hutchinson is back in full training but is unlikely to feature, while Sam Winnall could take another step towards his return with an appearance for the Under-23s next week.

Marco Matias (hamstring) is ruled out.
