Match Preview | Sheffield Wednesday (H)

All the information you need ahead of Saturday's match...

26 February 2021

The Hatters welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Kenilworth Road tomorrow afternoon looking to end a winless run of three games in the Sky Bet Championship.

After conceding a late equaliser to Millwall on Tuesday night, Town will be keen to make sure they try and put things right against The Owls – who have one win in their last five matches.

Who?

Sheffield Wednesday have plenty of history to their name since they were formed in 1867. The Owls have lifted the FA Cup three times but more recently they won the Football League Cup in 1991.

Early in the 1900’s they were First Division champions four times, but they have been absent from the top-flight for 20 years now.

 

The Manager – Neil Thompson

Following the dismissal of both Garry Monk and Tony Pulis during this season, Neil Thompson has remained in caretaker charge of the club for the time being.

Thompson has been at Sheffield Wednesday since early 2011 when he was brought in to work with then-manager Gary Megson, and he has since had stints coaching the academy, including taking the under-23s to a Professional Development League triumph in 2016/17.

 

Main threat – Callum Paterson

Callum Paterson is Sheffield Wednesday’s top scorer this season with seven goals to his name and his physical presence will be a challenge to come up against.

The Scotland international has missed just three matches for the Owls in the league this term and will be ever important as they look to avoid relegation.

 

When and where?

Kick-off is 3pm at Kenilworth Road on Saturday 27th February.

 

Man in the middle?

The referee for Saturday’s match is Michael Salisbury – who most recently took charge of the Hatters during the home loss against Brentford in October.

 

Played before?

Town were victorious in the last two meetings against Sheffield Wednesday and by the same scoreline too – 1-0.

The latter of which, thanks to Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu’s goal, is available to watch on YouTube here…
