After a week of positives so far for Wednesday, Garry Monk’s men will be aiming to end it on a high with a win against Millwall in S6.
It’s the final game before the international break and the Owls will be looking for back to back league victories on home soil.
Wednesday produced a much-improved performance against promotion hopefuls Bournemouth on Tuesday and inflicted a first defeat of the season on the Cherries.
Barry Bannan’s second half penalty was the difference on the night and it was a deserved three points for the Owls.
Millwall represent a tough challenge this weekend and the Lions have made a strong start to 2020/21, sitting eighth in the table.
Incredibly, the Lions have kept 15 clean sheets in the calendar year 2020 – the highest in the Championship and more than any side in Europe’s top five leagues.

Owls boss on Millwall: “I have come up against Gary (Rowett) quite a few times. He's an experienced manager and always sets his teams up and organised.
“Millwall is always a difficult game. They’ve got set piece threats and they’re difficult to beat because of their organisation. It will be an interesting tactical battle.”
Gary Rowett on the Owls: “They got a really good result against Bournemouth and then get six points back. It means they’ve just had a nine-point week and essentially that has to play a huge psychological impact on the group. It doesn’t change anything for us. We have to go there and try and get a result.”
