Match preview: Owls v Huddersfield

14 July 2020

Wednesday will be looking to build on the positives from Saturday’s 3-0 win over QPR on the road.

It was a welcomed return to winning ways for Garry Monk’s side, who halted their three-game losing streak.


The Owls dominated from start to finish against the R’s with goals from Dominic Iorfa, Josh Windass and Jacob Murphy sealing the three points.

Wednesday have won twice on the road since the restart (Bristol City, 2-1 and QPR 3-0), and are the division’s leading scorers away from home (36 goals).

Huddersfield have picked up five points since the restart but have slipped dangerously close to the bottom three after defeat on Friday at home to Luton.

Here’s what you need to know ahead of the game in our detailed match preview:

SWFC: Liam Palmer, Kieran Lee and Connor Wickham could be back involved for Wednesday.

Palmer was ruled out of the trip to QPR with a knock, while Lee and Wickham had returned to full training but the clash in West London came too soon.


Though after an impressive 3-0 win over the R’s, Monk may opt to name a similar side with no fresh injuries reported.

Huddersfield: While manager Danny Cowley hasn’t reported any significant injury concerns, Huddersfield are expected to make changes.

The Terriers slipped to a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Luton on Friday and head into tonight’s game two points above the drop zone.

Defender Tommy Elphick (knee) remains the only long-term absentee.
