MATCH DETAILS

Sheffield Wednesday v Hartlepool United
Wednesday 1 December
Kick-off - 7.00pm
Papa John’s Trophy Round Two
Hillsborough

Following 10 unbeaten games in League One, we turn our attention to the Papa John’s Trophy and the visit of Hartlepool United.

The Owls go into the fixture having won all three of our first-round group games and will be hoping to build on an impressive run of form in the league. Wednesday sit seventh in League One following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Wycombe at Hillsborough.

Pools finished second in their Papa John's Trophy group and currently lie 17th in League Two. The Durham-based side have lost four of their last five games in all competitions but will be looking to impress new manager Graeme Lee after the former Owl was appointed on Wednesday morning.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: We have no new injury concerns following our weekend draw with Wycombe.

Darren Moore said he would be picking from a similar squad to the one that faced the Chairboys at Hillsborough.

Hartlepool: Jamie Sterry will miss the S6 cup-clash through suspension. Long-term absentee Tyler Burey remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.
