The Owls are on the road for the first time this season with a trip to StadiumMK.

Both Wednesday and MK Dons are looking for their first win of the new campaign.

Following a dramatic season-opener at Hillsborough, the points were shared between the Owls and Portsmouth in a six-goal thriller.

Meanwhile, Liam Manning’s side began 2022/23 with a 1-0 defeat away at Cambridge.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Michael Smith is set to miss out on Saturday. The striker has a minor injury sustained in pre-season and Darren Moore says the former Rotherham man will not be risked.

Callum Paterson is available for selection after missing out on the opening day against Portsmouth due to a minor knock in training.

Fisayo Dele-Bashiru was substituted late in the clash with Pompey as a precaution but has trained all week and will be in the squad on Saturday.

Dennis Adeniran is also available for selection.
