Match preview: Millwall v Owls

12 February 2019

Wednesday head to Millwall this evening in the Sky Bet Championship.

Nine points and four places separate the two sides with the Owls heading into the game in 16th spot and Millwall 20th.  

The Lions are four points above the drop zone and have produced a mixed bag of results of late with two defeats, two draws and one win in their last five games.

The win came in the FA Cup at home to Everton, while their most recent league victory came back on New Year’s Day away at Ipswich.

Wednesday head to The Den on the back of two wins and a draw from the last three in the Championship, having kept clean sheets in all three (v Wigan, Ipswich and Reading).

Here is swfc.co.uk’s match preview:

Team news

Owls: Tom Lees looks set to miss out this evening after picking up a minor injury in training.

Jordan Thorniley made his first start since mid-December in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Reading and is likely to retain his place.

Josh Onomah (hamstring) will not make the trip.

Millwall: Striker Tom Bradshaw remains sidelined after picking up a knee injury in early November.

The 26-year-old is making progress but faces a longer road to full recovery.

The Lions will hand a late fitness test to striker Tom Elliott who suffered a dislocated shoulder against Blackburn last month.

Goalkeeper Ben Amos (finger) and right back Conor McLaughlin (quad) are also ruled out.
