Match preview: Bristol City v Owls

26 September 2020

Sheffield Wednesday head to Bristol City on Sunday in the Championship.

The fixture was originally set for Saturday but due to Bristol City’s Carabao Cup schedule, and a meeting with Aston Villa on Thursday, the game was put back to Sunday.

The Robins were defeated 3-0 on home soil in that cup clash, with manager Dean Holden naming a much-changed side from their previous Championship win over Stoke.

Prior to the defeat against Villa, City had won four games on the spin, including two wins from two in the Championship.

The Owls also exited the Carabao Cup in midweek against Fulham, but have picked up four points from two league games so far this season (Cardiff 0-2 and Watford 0-0).

Owls boss on Bristol City: “We are in a phase where we are facing teams where their remits are definitely to be up there. They have obviously had a really good start. It will be a tough game. We have done well so far and we know we can give them a tough time.”

Bristol City manager Dean Holden said: “It’s now all about the league and a positive response is needed. It’s always about what we do next, recovery is big now and Sheffield Wednesday played on Wednesday so they have an extra day but it’s not too big a deal, as long as we recover properly and attack the game as we did in the previous four.”
