Match preview: Owls v Oxford

1 October 2021

It’s Wednesday v Oxford this Saturday at Hillsborough as Darren Moore’s Owls look to build on the impressive midweek win at Wigan.

It was a welcome return to winning ways for Wednesday at the DW Stadium after going four games without victory.

Our form on home soil has been strong at the start of the campaign with two wins and one draw in League One action.

And Wednesday will be out to extend the unbeaten S6 start against an Oxford side who sit eighth in the table after 10 games.

The midweek round of fixtures also saw Oxford end a four-game winless run as Karl Robinson’s side picked up an emphatic 5-1 home win over Accrington.
