Sheffield Wednesday: Predicted XI vs Accrington Stanley

Sheffield Wednesday return to League One action on Saturday as they face Accrington Stanley away from home.

Darren Moore’s side were unlucky to lose out on penalties against Premier League Southampton in midweek, having eased past Morecambe at Hillsborough in the FA Cup the game prior.

After the excitement of two cup ties, it is now back to the bread and butter of the league for the Owls, with three points a must against John Coleman’s strugglers if automatic promotion is still the aim for Sheffield Wednesday this season.

Here is how we at Football FanCast expect Moore to line his side up on Saturday, with three changes from the team that started against Southampton on Wednesday evening.

Predicted Sheddield Wednesday XI: Stockdale; Palmer, Ihiekwe, McGuinness, Johnson; Bannan, Byers, Vaulks; Windass; Wilks, Gregory

David Stockdale seems almost certain to continue between the sticks, although Moore has the welcome boost of having Cameron Dawson back available as second-choice as he looks set to return from his concussion.

Liam Palmer also seems likely to return after missing the trip to Southampton with an ear infection, so he replaces of Dominic Iorfa at right-back, with Michael Ihiekwe, Mark McGuinness and Mavin Johnson keeping their spots in the back four.

Will the Owls win today?





There are two changes in midfield, as George Byers also returns from injury to start at the Wham Stadium in place of Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, who picked up a knock at St Mary’s.

There is also a start for Will Vaulks in place of the “important” Calum Patterson after he made a rare appearance in the League Cup fixture.

This sees Josh Windass drop into attacking midfield after scoring as a striker in midweek, with Malik Wilks earning a start up front with Lee Gregory, having been cup-tied for the game against Southampton.
