Match preview: Owls v QPR

3 May 2019

The curtain is set to close on the 2018/19 season on Sunday as the Owls host QPR at Hillsborough (12.30pm).

Wednesday will be looking to finish the campaign on a high and head into the game with just two defeats from their last 18.

The R’s, meanwhile, have struggled during the second half of 2018/19.

The club have managed just two league wins from their previous 21 outings and have suffered three consecutive defeats heading to Hillsborough.

Here is’s match preview:

Team news

Owls: Keiren Westwood is a doubt with a knee injury.

Manager Steve Bruce has confirmed Achraf Lazaar will not make the clash with the R’s.

Dominic Iorfa begins his three-match suspension after receiving a red card last week at Preston, while Josh Onomah is an injury doubt.

Elsewhere, there are no fresh concerns from the eventful 3-3 draw at Deepdale last week.

QPR: The R's are likely to rotate their squad after caretaker boss John Eustace made several changes for the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest last time out at Loftus Road.

Luke Freeman, Matt Smith and Nahki Wells were named on the bench last weekend and could be recalled to the starting XI for the season finale at Hillsborough.

The coronation of King Maha Vajiralongkorn

Prior to kick-off, in a display of unity and reverence for our chairman Dejphon Chansiri and the people of Thailand, the Owls will mark the coronation of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
