Match preview: Owls v Wycombe

26 November 2021

MATCH DETAILS
Date: Saturday 27 November
Kick-off: 3.00pm
League One
Hillsborough

Wednesday will be looking to extend our unbeaten run to 10 games in League One at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The visitors Wycombe lead the way in the division, alongside Rotherham, with 37 points after ending Plymouth’s nine-game unbeaten home run last time out.

The Chairboys picked up an impressive 3-0 win at Home Park to leapfrog Argyle into the automatic promotion spots.

It was a welcome return for Josh Windass in midweek for the Owls as the forward hit a stoppage-time winner to seal the three points against MK Dons and in doing so, ended the long wait for a comeback win on home soil.
