Match preview: Forest v Wednesday

19 September 2018

The Owls travel to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship.

Here is the swfc.co.uk’s match preview:

The Owls’ unbeaten run in the Championship has now stretched to four games following the 2-2 draw with Stoke on Saturday.

Wednesday, of course, fought back from two goals down to gain a point against the Potters and now head to The City Ground aiming to post their second league win of the season away from home.

Forest have drawn five of their seven league games so far this season.

Aitor Karanka’s side drew 0-0 last time out at Swansea but will be looking to make the most of home advantage, with back to back games on home soil v Wednesday and Rotherham.

Aside from the five draws, Forest have beaten Reading at The City Ground in early August and were defeated 2-1 by Brentford at Griffin Park prior to the international break.

Team news:

Owls: Jos Luhukay has no fresh injury concerns following Saturday’s draw with Stoke.

Josh Onomah and Michael Hector both made their debuts from the bench on Saturday and are pushing for a starting berth.

Fernando Forestieri remains sidelined through suspension, while Sam Hutchinson (groin) has returned to full training but will not feature on Wednesday.

Forest: Striker Daryl Murphy (groin) will be unavailable for selection.

Defender Michael Dawson (calf) will hope to feature on Wednesday evening. The former Hull man has played only twice for Forest since his summer switch to The City Ground.
