Stoke City v Wednesday
Saturday 9 December
The Bet365 Stadium


Wednesday’s upturn in form helped produced four points from two tough home fixtures last week.

A draw against league leaders Leicester followed by an impressive win over Blackburn has provided a much-needed boost down in S6.

The improvement of the team under Danny Röhl has been evident from the off and now the Owls boss wants the accumulation of points to match those performance levels.

Heading to Stoke this weekend with confidence, Wednesday will be looking for a first away win of the campaign.

The Potters, meanwhile, have stumbled over the past month and are winless in five, losing their last three on the bounce.

Those games include a 3-0 home loss to Rovers followed by back-to-back defeats on the road at QPR (4-2) and Plymouth (2-1).

That form has seen Stoke drop to 20th in the Championship.


Wednesday: Pol Valentin and Michael Smith have returned to training this week but the trip to Stoke may come too soon for the duo.


Dominic Iorfa is unlikely to be available after picking up an injury last time out.

Stoke City: The Potters can welcome Daniel Johnson, Wouter Burger and Enda Stevens back from suspension this weekend.


Ben Wilmot and Sead Hakšabanović have both been ruled out through injury.

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.
