Sheffield Wednesday vs. Forest preview..

It seems like so long since we’ve played a game, given the contemplation of the football against Derby was largely overshadowed by the over-reaction to the afters it seems even longer – so tomorrow’s trip up to Sheffield can’t come soon enough!  I actually quite like Sheffield Wednesday mainly because of Brian Laws being there, and perhaps because I don’t like Sheffield United very much!

We have some good news on the injury front – after a couple of friendly appearances Kelvin Wilson is likely to make the squad – although given the fact he’s not a left back, it’s limitedly good news.  Joel Lynch and Moussi are unlikely to feature – so I would hazard a guess that Cohen will remain at left back with Chambers and Wes in central defence, Gunts at right back and Kelv on the bench, presuming Gunter hasn’t picked up a knock during international duty.

In midfield Paul McKenna will be available despite picking up what looked like a serious ankle knock against Derby after a challenge with Paul Dickov, so I would expect him to partner Majewski in midfield, then it’s anyone’s guess what Billy decides to do on the wing or up front.  So Lynch and Moussi are now our short-term injury concerns, with Bennett and Perch the long term casualties.

The Owls are without Francis Jeffers who is serving a suspension, and probably will also be missing Leon Clarke who is recovering from a hamstring injury – so former-Ram Marcus Tudgay and current-Ram Luke Varney are likely to be Brian Laws’ front pairing of choice.

Wednesday have had a marginally better start to the season than we have – two wins, two draws and one defeat play our one win, two draws and two defeats.  A win for us would neatly even the scores!  Wednesday are unbeaten at home this season, we are unbeaten away – so maybe the smart money would be on a draw?  You would think so, but the last time we drew at Hillsborough against the Owls was in the late 1960s!

A good away following will hopefully spur the Reds on to victory.

  1. Last time I was at Hillsborough we won 7-1… ah those were the days. Jumped out of my seat so many times I lost my keys. Had a big smile on my drunk face as I shinned up the drainpipe to the unlocked first floor window… hmm, I’ll settle for one nil and some points please… but that was a fine day.

  2. Can not make the game today,but sent my 2 lads to represent the family name,also i hear from a very good source that Perch looks like being out for the rest of the season,the source being his mum.

  3. No Majewski? No Tyson?
    McGugan!!
    Moussi!!

    U REDS!!

  4. Thats enough for Sheffield today, United beat Derby! lol

  5. 1-0 Blackstock! Yeah!

  6. listened on the radio, sounded like we had a few chances to seal it towards the end… ref was favouring the home side somewhat…

    bit frustrating, but just keep in mind how poor were for the 1st half of the season last year! thankfully we’re a world away from that and on the up n up, hope Davies gets a few loan deals sorted…
