Match preview: Owls v Bournemouth

3 November 2020

Sheffield Wednesday host Bournemouth this evening at Hillsborough.

After what was a positive start to the campaign, the Owls have stuttered in the past week and a half and will be looking to bounce back to halt the four-game losing streak.

It’s been a different story for the Cherries, who have adapted back to life in the Championship superbly.

Jason Tindall’s side are unbeaten in nine games, with four wins and five draws.

They sit third in the division, five points off top spot.

SWFC: Tom Lees is back from suspension and goes straight into contention tonight at Hillsborough.


The defender was sent off in the trip to Rotherham and sat out the weekend clash with Wycombe.

Fellow defender Joost van Aken remains suspended, as he serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Izzy Brown will be pushing to be involved from the off after returning from injury to feature at Adams Park on Saturday.


The Chelsea loanee played half an hour in Wednesday’s 1-0 loss against the Chairboys.

Massimo Luongo and Aden Flint remain sidelined.

Bournemouth: Jefferson Lerma (hamstring) is in contention for a return for the visitors.


David Brooks made his return from injury and illness last time out in the 1-1 draw with Derby, coming on from the bench for the final 20 minutes.

Owls boss on Bournemouth: “I will try and give them best preparation that I possibly can to try and help them to give them confidence and belief and push them as hard as I can like I have always done.


“It’s a tough moment, it’s the toughest situation I’ve been in. I have got belief in myself and know what I deliver on a daily basis and I believe I can help the club get out of this situation.”

Manager Jason Tindall on Owls: “They started the season well and picked up some really good points. Results haven't quite been as they'd like in the last three or four games but I'm sure it's something they're looking to put right, starting against us.


"They're a really solid Championship side and we have to make sure we go out there and perform the way we know we can."
