Lee Bullen offers Sheffield Wednesday insight as Millwall await

Sheffield Wednesday caretaker manager Lee Bullen has hinted that he will make changes to his side for their Championship tie with Millwall on Saturday.

The Owls have made a fantastic start to the season and sit top of the league after winning their first two Championship fixtures.

An opening weekend 3-1 victory against Reading was followed up by a resounding 2-0 win against Barnsley in their first home game of the season.

Wednesday face a trip to the Den to play Millwall on Saturday and, speaking ahead of the game, Bullen suggested he may make some changes to his side.

He told the club’s media: “I like continuity with team selection but you have to assess the opposition and select accordingly and there may be one or two changes. It will be a very physical game.

“We’re under no illusions, mentally and physically it will be a tough game but the lads are in a good place at the moment and they will be ready.

“All my focus is on Millwall and after that, Luton. We just want to continue how we have started this season. The lads have been terrific.”

The Owls’ last trip to the Den finished in a 0-0 draw but Bullen will undoubtedly be hoping his side can continue their winning start on Saturday.

Championship Picks

The Verdict

Millwall are unbeaten this season, after beating Preston North End and drawing with West Bromwich Albion, and the visit to the Den looks set to be a stern test for the Owls.

Under Neil Harris, the Lions are a direct and physical side, so it could be a smart decision from Bullen to make some changes in preparation for that.

With Wednesday not yet having made a decision over a full-time manager, a win on Saturday would make it nine points from a possible nine for Bullen and would surely strengthen his chances of getting the job.
