Latest Sheffield Wednesday team news pre-Wycombe, what will the Owls XI look like tonight?

Published

on

Sheffield Wednesday will be hoping they can pick up an important three points on Tuesday evening against relegation-threatened rivals Wycombe Wanderers. 

The Owls were thrashed 4-1 by Millwall at the weekend, in what was a disappointing defensive display against Gary Rowett’s side.

It means that Sheffield Wednesday are sat 23rd in the Championship table, and three points adrift of safety heading into the final 27 matches of their season.

They take on a Wycombe Wanderers side that are rooted to the bottom of the second-tier standings in their first season in the Championship.

It remains to be seen as to whether Neil Thompson will make any major changes to his team, although he is waiting to see if Massimo Luongo will be deemed fit enough to feature in the game against the Chairboys this week.

Were each of these Sheffield Wednesday players left or right footed?

Luongo was absent from the matchday squad in their defeat to Millwall, and the midfielder is being assessed on a thigh problem heading into Tuesday’s match.

Sheffield Wednesday don’t have any other new injury concerns for their game against Wycombe Wanderers, and the club’s supporters will be eager to see a response from their side after the heavy defeat on Saturday.

Dominic Iorfa remains a long-term absentee, although the void left by the defender has been filled by Chey Dunkley this season, with the former Wigan Athletic man making seven appearances in all competitions this term.

Jordan Rhodes could be pushing for a place in the starting XI, after being named as a substitute in their match against Millwall, despite stepping off the bench and scoring in their 2-1 win over promotion-chasing AFC Bournemouth.

Kadeem Harris is another player that could be challenging for a start against Wycombe, having been used as a second-half substitute in Sheffield Wednesday’s last two matches in the Championship.

A win for the Owls on Tuesday evening could see them move out of the relegation zone, and they’ll be hoping they can pull clear of one of their relegation rivals tonight at Adams Park, with Wycombe currently nine points adrift of Neil Thompson’s side.
