Darren Moore could well name an unchanged squad for tomorrow’s top-of-the-table clash with Ipswich at Hillsborough.
Wednesday sit in fourth place on 16 points, four behind league leaders Ipswich who come to S6 unbeaten in their eight league games played.
Manager Moore reports just “a few minor knocks and scrapes” from the squad that returned from Morecambe in midweek with three points, three goals and a clean sheet and is likely to stick with the same 18 for the visit of the Tractor Boys.
There should be a crowd of 25,000-plus at S6 tomorrow, including more than 3,000 from Ipswich, and there will be a minute’s silence before kick off in memory of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the singing of the national anthem.
Moore said today: “You can imagine what the atmosphere is going to be like. There will be a large crowd at Hillsborough tomorrow and we as a football club want to pay our respects to our beloved Queen.”
On the game itself, he added: “It will be a great game. There will be real high-level football played from the teams tomorrow.
“It is a top-of-the-table clash and we look forward to it.
“Every manager will tell you they want to win every match but we know the magnitude and difficulty of the game.
“You have to earn the right to win. If we are to come away with three points tomorrow, the team and individuals will have to play well.”
One familiar face in the Ipswich line-up will be striker Tyreece John-Jules who came to us on loan from Arsenal last season. However, he picked up a serious quad injury when he came on as a sub in his debut – ironically against Ipswich – and had to return to his parent club for treatment, without seeing further action for the Owls.
He joined Ipswich on a year-long loan in the summer and has made 10 appearances across all competitions, scoring one goal.
