Sheffield Wednesday travel across the Pennines to the DW Stadium to take on league leaders Wigan Athletic this evening, in what promises to be an enthralling League One tie.
After narrowly surviving last season, Leam Richardson’s Wigan have set the pace in the third tier through the first two months of 2021/22.
Both clubs were busy in the summer transfer window but things are yet to click properly for the Owls, though they were minutes away from a fourth victory of the campaign against Ipswich Town on the weekend.
Despite a dramatic late equaliser, Darren Moore’s side will likely take heart from their performance against the Tractor Boys but they’ll have to be at their best to get past the league leaders, who are unbeaten at home in League One.
The Latics were comfortable 2-0 winners against Cheltenham Town on Saturday in what was their fourth league win at the DW Stadium in 2021/22.
