All you need to know: Sheffield Wednesday v Norwich City

1 November 2018

Norwich City travel to the Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday in their latest Sky Bet Championship match on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The Canaries currently sit fourth in the table, two points off Wednesday’s rivals Sheffield United who are placed top of the Sky Bet Championship.

The Owls have fell to 15th after losing three games on the bounce, meaning they have yet to pick up a point since returning from the international break.

Here's all you need to know ahead of City's trip to Sheffield:

Getting to the Hillsborough

The postcode for the Hillsborough is S6 1SW. For directions from Carrow Road, click HERE.

The stadium is in the north-west of the city of Sheffield, about 2.5 kilometres from Sheffield city centre. Supporters are advised to avoid this route and approach the ground from the north instead.

When driving to the ground, exit the M1 at junction 36, follow the A61 towards Sheffield. Continue for approximately four miles until you go past Sainsbury’s. Turn right (Leppings Lane) - the ground is situated on the left-hand side.

Both train and tram is accessible for supporters. Sheffield Railway Station is situated in the town centre, three miles from the ground.

By Supertram, take the South Yorkshire Supertram towards Middlewood Road (yellow route). Exit at the Leppings Lane stop, which is a short walk from the ground.

Parking for away supporters is provided behind the Kop, named the Wednesdayite car park and is open to fans of both teams. It costs £7 for visitors and its post code is S6 1QE.

The away supporters section of the stadium is located in the upper tier of the West Stand.

Meet the opposition

The Owls come into the game against City on the back of three defeats, conceding eight goals in the process. Manager Jos Luhukay will be hoping to turn his sides form around on Saturday.

Adam Reach and Lucas Joao share the top scorer spot for Wednesday, both scoring five league goals this season. However, Reach also has two assists to his name, meaning he has directly contributed to the most goals this season.

Wednesday’s last win came on September, 7 beating Bristol City 2-1 at Ashton Gate, Joao netting both goals for the Owls that day. Although, their last home win came against East Anglian opposition, Ipswich back in August.

Last time City played Wednesday was a day to forget for the Canaries. The last game of the 2017/18 season saw the home side put five past Angus Gunn in the Norwich goal, winning 5-1.
