Bristol City v Wednesday
Saturday 4 November
Wednesday will be looking to build after notching a first league win of the season last weekend.
The Owls came out on top in the South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham for Danny Röhl’s first home game in charge.
Victory over the Millers, combined with an uplift in performances under Röhl and his new coaching staff, has breathed fresh life into the club over the past few weeks.
Our hosts this weekend, Bristol City, have found the going tough since mid-September with five defeats from the last seven outings.
That form saw ex-Wednesday captain Nigel Pearson leave his role as manager at Ashton Gate earlier this week.
The Robins sit 15th in the table and have won two, drawn two and lost three of their seven home fixtures so far this season.
Wednesday: As confirmed during the manager’s pre-match press conference, our squad is in good shape this weekend.
On Thursday, there were 27 players in training, meaning Röhl has plenty of options.
With no fresh concerns after Sunday’s win, Wednesday could line up in a similar way that earned the points against Rotherham.
Momo Diaby is edging closer to a return to action with the next step for the midfielder likely to be an outing for our Under-21s to help build match fitness.
On the suspension front, Josh Windass and Callum Paterson are a caution away from a one-match ban.
Bristol City: Caretaker manager Curtis Fleming will have plenty to consider ahead of the Owls clash.
The likes of Rob Atkinson, Haydon Roberts and George Tanner at the back have all been sidelined.
Fellow defender Zak Vyner has been missing since mid-September but looks likely to make his comeback on Saturday.
Ross McCrorie, Ayman Benarous, Matty James, Joe Williams, Nakhi Wells and Andy King are all injury worries for City.
