PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Preston

PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Preston

Well well well.

What a bizarre week for Wednesdayites.

After the hoo-hah around the fans forum, Chansiri announced without doubt that Luhukay would remain in charge and he was selling the club.

So days later, we go into this game with Luhukay no longer at the club, Steve Bruce looks certain to be the replacement.

This move seems extremely positive to be fair, so I and many others are very happy.

I thought it was suspicious when Bullen took the press conference…


Owls Team News

Bullen will take charge for this one.

I half think he’ll go for some of Luhukay’s non-favourites to distance himself from the Dutchman’s regime.

Jones, Hutchinson, Westwood?

The injury concerns largely look the same, no Forestieri, Winnall, etc etc etc.

Barry Bannan is still suspended.


The Opponent’s Camp

Preston seem to have had an appalling season but sit slightly above us in the table.

What a weird league!

With goals flying in at both ends for the Lilywhites, they’re having a similar season to us!

Josh Earl and Lewis Moult are both doubts as they look to secure their third win in a row.
