Match preview: Owls v Burton

28 February 2022


Sheffield Wednesday v Burton Albion
Tuesday 1 March
Sky Bet League One

Wednesday moved up into the top six on Saturday after the 2-0 win over Charlton at Hillsborough.

It was an assured display from Darren Moore’s men, who extended the terrific run of form which now stands at seven wins from the last nine games.


The Owls have hit a rich vein of form as we approach the business end of the season and that consistency of performance had led to a rise into the play-off places for the first time since last September.

On Tuesday night, Wednesday and Burton go head-to-head in League One for the second time in less than three weeks.

The Owls overcame the Brewers 2-0 at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday 5 February, with goals from George Byers and Sylla Sow.


Our midweek visitors arrive at Hillsborough with a mixed bag of recent results.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side lost 2-0 at home to Shrewsbury on Saturday. Prior to that, the Brewers picked up a point from their trip to Sunderland but have just one win from their previous seven League One outings.


Wednesday: There were no fresh injury concerns reported after the win over the Addicks.

It’s likely Wednesday will have a similar squad available to that on Saturday.

Lee Gregory is edging closer and although Tuesday’s game may come too soon, the striker could be available come the weekend when we travel to Lincoln.

Chey Dunkley has resumed training with the squad after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Harlee Dean, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, Olamide Shodipo, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Josh Windass and Tyreece John-Jules remain sidelined.

Dennis Adeniran is set to miss the remainder of the season in recovery from a hamstring injury.

Burton: Assistant manager Dino Maamria has confirmed the club have no fresh injuries heading to Hillsborough.

Midfielder Ciaran Gilligan will miss the game with a hamstring injury.
