Owls v Leicester
Wednesday 29 November
The Owls host league-leaders Leicester City this evening at Hillsborough.
It’s top v bottom as the Foxes head to S6 aiming to strengthen their grip on an automatic promotion spot.
Our visitors look set for an immediate return to the Premier League after winning 14 of their 17 league games this season.
Equally as strong on their travels as at home, Leicester have posted seven wins on the road this season and are 10 points clear of third-placed West Brom with a game in hand.
With that in mind it will be a tough test for the Owls, who head into the contest as firm underdogs.
Performances and stats across the board are heading in the right direction under manager Danny Röhl and the key now over the Christmas fixtures is to turn those performances into points.
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY
As always, we remind supporters to arrive early to avoid unnecessary queues on matchday.
