Match preview: Owls v Norwich

12 March 2021

Sheffield Wednesday host league leaders Norwich on Sunday at Hillsborough.

The fixture will be broadcast live on Sky Sports at 12:15pm.

The Canaries head to Hillsborough in outstanding form with seven straight league wins and a healthy cushion in top spot – 10 points clear of Watford and Swansea ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures.

The odds are stacked against the Owls, who are looking to halt the run of six straight losses.
