THE MATCH

The Owls are back on the road this weekend, facing Cardiff in South Wales.

Xisco’s side are out to put our first points of the season on the board at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bluebirds were off the mark with a point at Leeds on the opening day but have since lost to QPR and Leicester, both by the odd goal in three.

Like Wednesday, though, Cardiff did progress to the second round of the Carabao Cup, beating Colchester on penalties.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Xisco suffered a blow last time out when Momo Diaby limped out of the Hillsborough clash. The midfield new recruit will likely miss out on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Mallik Wilks is nearing a return to contention with injury having impacted his start to the Championship campaign.

LOVE FOOTBALL, PROTECT THE GAME

The EFL, Premier League, FA, FSA, PGMOL, LMA and PFA have come together this season to implement a series of measures to address behaviour across the game.

This includes new policies, procedures, and regulations to eradicate unacceptable conduct on the pitch, on the sidelines and in the stands.

The new measures build on the work launched last season to combat dangerous and illegal fan behaviour, supported by the ‘Love Football. Protect the Game’ football-wide campaign.
