Match preview: Bristol City v Owls

27 June 2020

The Owls are back on the road in the Championship for the first time since the restart and head to Bristol City for the Sunday lunchtime kick-off.

Garry Monk was pleased by last weekend’s positive performance by his side in the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

A point was the very least Wednesday deserved on Saturday as Connor Wickham’s first goal during his current loan stint salvaged the draw in stoppage time.

For the Robins, the restart brought about a 3-1 defeat away at Blackburn.

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

TEAM NEWS

SWFC: Sheffield Wednesday are in good shape ahead of the trip to Ashton Gate.

Josh Windass is the only injury concern but Monk issued a positive update on the loanee in terms of his rehabilitation on Friday, with the midfielder expected to make a speedy return to action.

Elsewhere, Steven Fletcher, Morgan Fox and Fernando Forestieri remain eligible to feature before the expiration of their contracts.

Though Fletcher has not trained this week after picking up an injury on Saturday and is therefore unlikely to figure.

Bristol City: Defender Pedro Pereira (thigh) has been ruled out for four weeks.

Ex-Owl Jack Hunt is likely to get the nod in the City backline.
