Match preview: Owls v Plymouth

3 February 2023

Wednesday v Plymouth Argyle
Saturday 4 February
League One


A mouth-watering contest awaits as the top two in League One go head-to-head at Hillsborough.


Plymouth have led the way for much of the campaign but Wednesday can leapfrog the Pilgrims at the summit with victory this weekend.

Both sides have lost only three games all season, the last of which for the Owls was against Plymouth at Home Park back in early October.

Wednesday have since embarked on a 21-match run of resistance in all competitions.


Wednesday: Barry Bannan is in the frame following a spell on the sidelines and likewise George Byers.


The midfield duo came off the bench last weekend in the Emirates FA Cup against Fleetwood.

Darren Moore confirmed that Akin Famewo came off against the Cod Army with cramp and is available on Saturday.

Plymouth: Brendan Galloway and Mikel Miller have returned to training and could come into contention.

With no new fitness or suspension concerns, manager Steven Schumacher is set to select from a full squad.



An extremely limited number of tickets remain for home supporters, while Plymouth have sold out their allocation for the West Stand.

The 1867 Lounge and Wednesday Tap will open at midday, while the Fan Zone, with its brand-new canopy to keep out the elements, also opens from 12 noon.
