The Owls are back on their travels this weekend and face a Preston side that have won their two home games so far this season.

Wednesday’s fine start to the term continued in midweek with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Luton at Hillsborough, to make it three wins from four.

Preston, meanwhile, have won two and lost two in the Championship this season.


The two defeats have come away at Millwall and Swansea, while the Lilywhites have beaten Wigan and Stoke at Deepdale.

Alex Neil's side also progressed in the EFL Cup with a 4-0 win away at Bradford.
