Match preview: Owls v Everton

24 September 2019

The Owls’ focus switches to the Carabao Cup this evening where they host Everton in the third round.

Wednesday defeated Rotherham 1-0 to reach this stage of the competition with Atdhe Nuhiu’s stoppage time goal the difference at the New York Stadium last month.

Everton advanced to round three after overcoming Lincoln 4-2 at Sincil Bank.


The Toffees had to come from behind after the Imps opened the scoring inside the first minute but goals from Lucas Digne, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi and Richarlison saw the Premier League side go through.

Marco Silva is likely to name a strong line-up as Everton bid to bounce back from successive league defeats, that have left them 14th in the table.


Team news

SWFC: Owls captain Tom Lees (hamstring) will be assessed ahead of the game.

There are no fresh injury or suspension concerns for Wednesday following the 1-1 draw with Fulham at the weekend.


Fernando Forestieri will serve the third game of his six-match suspension.

On the back of the Owls’ fightback against the Cottagers three days ago, manager Garry Monk may opt to make changes for tonight’s cup clash.

Everton: Andre Gomes (rib injury) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) are ruled out for the Toffees.

Goalkeeper Jonas Lossl (calf) is closing in on his return to the squad.
