Wednesday hit three goals for the first time this season – and all in the first half against Swansea in the Hillsborough sunshine – to stretch our unbeaten league run to six games. Steve Bruce, who has been in charge for five of those matches, said his plan was to press the Swans high up […]
Westwood, Palmer, Lees, Hector, Lazaar, Aarons, Hutchinson, Bannan, Reach, Joao, Fletcher. Subs. Dawson, Iorfa, Pudil, Pelupessy, Nuhiu, Matias, Jones.
Rolando Aarons is expected to make the starting line-up for the first time since his deadline day loan move from Newcastle when Wednesday take on Swansea at Hillsborough on Saturday. Aarons caught the eye of watching boss Steve Bruce, scoring a goal and striking the woodwork in the under-23s 2-0 midweek win at Sheff U, […]
Jordan Thorniley is likely to miss Saturday’s home game with Swansea after suffering a head injury at Rotherham last weekend. Thorniley received lengthy treatment on the field following an aerial challenge from Rotherham’s Will Vaulks late in the match and the young defender then had to be helped from the pitch. Owls boss Steve Bruce […]
A strong Wednesday under-23s side beat Sheff U 2-0 at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening. With Steve Bruce and Steve Agnew both in attendance, our starting line-up included Dominic Iorfa from his goalscoring heroics at Rotherham on Saturday and Newcastle loanees Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons. In addition, there were runouts for Sam Winnall and […]
Fernando Forestieri is suspended for Saturday’s home game with Swansea. He has received a one-match ban following his sending off at Rotherham on Saturday. Forestieri was given two yellow cards against the Millers – the first for a foul and then after celebrating with fans following Dominic Iorfa’s 100th minute equaliser. Meanwhile, Wednesday will be […]
Steve Bruce couldn’t hide his disappointment with Wednesday’s performance at Rotherham, despite seeing his unbeaten run as Owls boss stretched to four games. He saw us outplayed for much of the game by a home side who looked hungrier for the points and Bruce said Dominic Iorfa’s late, late equaliser in a 2-2 draw had […]
Debutant Dominic Iorfa grabbed an equaliser 10 minutes into added time and then Fernando Forestieri was sent off as Wednesday salvaged an extremely fortunate point from a poor display at Rotherham. All looked lost for us at 2-1 down but, after a long hold-up for a head injury to Jordan Thorniley in the 90th minute, […]
Westwood, Palmer, Thorniley, Hector, Fox, Boyd, Hutchinson, Bannan, Reach, Joao, Forestieri. Subs. Dawson, Iorfa, Lazaar, Pelupessy, Nuhiu, Aarons, Fletcher.
Tom Lees could return to the starting line-up for Saturday’s lunchtime trip to Rotherham. Lees has sat out the last two games with a shin injury and Steve Bruce waits to see if the skipper is fully fit to step back into the action. And, if Lees is given the all-clear, Bruce then has to […]
