Match preview: Cardiff v Wednesday

17 October 2019

Championship football resumes on Friday as Sheffield Wednesday travel to Cardiff (7.45pm).

The Owls headed into the break on the back of a positive result almost two weeks ago, having beaten Wigan 1-0 at Hillsborough.

Under the management of Garry Monk, Wednesday have taken ten points from a possible 15.


Cardiff were beaten away at West Brom 4-2 before the international break but will be buoyed by a return to the Cardiff City Stadium, given their home form this season.

The Bluebirds have won 13 points on home soil – a tally only bettered in the Championship by Preston, who have amassed 16 points at Deepdale.


Neil Warnock’s side head into the game in 11th position with 16 points, while the Owls are in 8th spot on 19 points.

Team news

SWFC: Liam Palmer (Scotland) and Atdhe Nuhiu (Kosovo) have returned from international duty and are available for selection.


Massimo Luongo, who didn’t travel with Australia due to a knee injury, is fit for selection, while Fernando Forestieri and Sam Hutchinson are back from suspension.


Tom Lees (hamstring) is making progress and is expected back in full training next week.

Cardiff: Midfielder Joe Ralls (groin) is back in training and could be recalled.


Neil Etheridge (Philippines) and Junior Hoilett (Canada) returned to Cardiff on Thursday having been away on international duty.

Sheffield Wednesday are reminding supporters of their conduct whilst following the team both at Hillsborough and away from home.

The launching of missiles from the stands, including pyrotechnics, are criminal offences and the club have a zero-tolerance policy to these.
