Match preview: Owls v Stoke

28 November 2020

Sheffield Wednesday return to Hillsborough today after back to back away games.

It’s also a first home fixture for new Owls boss Tony Pulis, who faces his former club Stoke City.

Wednesday posted a point in a tough midweek trip to Swansea and will be out to build on that positive display this afternoon in S6.
