Match preview: Watford v Wednesday

1 April 2021

The Owls return to action on Good Friday following the international break.

A trip to high flying Watford is next up for Darren Moore’s men.

The Hornets are second in the Championship and have won nine of their last ten outings.

But Wednesday headed into the recent break with four points from our last two games and the Owls boss is looking for his side to continue where they left off two weeks ago.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game:

TEAM NEWS

Owls: Keiren Westwood (ribs) has returned to training and will be assessed ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road. Joost van Aken is also back out on the pitches at Middlewood Road but the Good Friday clash may be too soon for the Owls duo.

Sam Hutchinson, Liam Shaw and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru have all returned to full training.

On Moses Odubajo, Cameron Dawson and Massimo Luongo, Moore said: “They’ll be back on the training ground running probably in the next two or three weeks.

“By the time they get to any level, the season will be nearly upon us, really. They’re making good progress but in terms of contributing to this season, it looks unlikely at the moment.”

Watford: Tom Cleverley is back in full training having recovered from a knee ligament problem.

Ismaïla Sarr (hamstring) is a doubt and a late decision will be made as to his inclusion in the squad.

Troy Deeney (Achilles) is sidelined.

Tom Dele-Bashiru – brother of Fisayo – is back training outdoors after suffering an ACL injury back in October.
