Match preview: Millwall v Wednesday

16 August 2019

The Owls are back on the road for the second time this season with a trip to Millwall on Saturday.

Wednesday have begun the campaign in strong style with six points from six, including an away win on the opening day at Reading and last weekend’s home victory over South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.

The Lions, meanwhile, are unbeaten from their first three outings this season.

Neil Harris’ side began the season with a 1-0 home win over Preston before picking up a point in the 1-1 draw away at West Brom.

But Millwall travelled back to the Hawthorns in midweek for the EFL cup-tie and advanced with a 2-1 win, as goals from Tom Bradshaw and Aiden O’Brien secured a place in round two.

Team news

SWFC: Keiren Westwood and Dominic Iorfa are back from suspension.

The Owls goalkeeper has served a one-match ban after his dismissal at Reading on the opening day, while Iorfa’s three-match suspension dating back to last season is complete.

Barry Bannan (calf) missed out in the 2-0 win over Barnsley but could return to action this weekend at the Den. The midfield man will be assessed ahead of the trip to the capital.

Adam Reach (toe) suffered a knock in the clash with the Reds but has trained all week and is fit for selection.

Millwall: Frank Fielding (thigh) is ruled out for the clash with Wednesday.

Bartosz Bialkowski was named in goal for the Championship clash with West Brom last Saturday, while Luke Steele was handed the gloves for the midweek cup clash at the Hawthorns.

Bialkowski is likely to be given the nod.

Mahlon Romeo, Ben Thompson and Shaun Williams all appeared off the bench in midweek and could come back into the starting XI this weekend.
