Owls face tough away trip this weekend

Cardiff Vs Wednesday: Team news & preview

Sheffield Wednesday travel to Wales this weekend to take on Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City on Saturday as they look to build on their 2 home wins in the past week.

The Owls make the trip with midfielders Almen Abdi and George Boyd who face further frustrating spells on the sidelines along with Fernando Forestieri. Sam Hutchinson and Glenn Loovens are also unlikely to be fit to return for this fixture.

Neil Warnock felt his side looked tired in midweek and he could choose to make a few changes in a bid to inject renewed energy. The likes of Lee Tomlin, Danny Ward and Craig Bryson could all come into contention.

Cardiff are still in 2nd place despite only taking 1 point from 2 away games in which they suffered their first defeat of the season at Preston. The have however won all 3 of their home games so far this season and the Owls have not won away to the Bluebirds since they moved to their new stadium in 2009. Wednesday beat Cardiff at Hillsborough towards the end of last season and have drawn on their last 2 visits to the Welsh capital.
