Match preview: Bournemouth v Owls

2 February 2021

Wednesday make the long trip south to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in the first fixture of February.

Saturday saw us extend our winning home run to four games with a 1-0 victory over Preston North End and the Owls will be looking for a repeat performance against the Cherries this evening.

A Barry Bannan penalty was the difference between the sides at Hillsborough in November, the Scot slotting home calmly to claim all three points for the Owls.
