Meet the opposition

Sheffield Wednesday have been on a good run since appointing Steve Bruce as manager at the start of February, winning six and drawing six of their last 14 games.

Their most recent defeats came against Aston Villa, with goals from John McGinn, Tammy Abraham and Albert Adomah cancelling out Gary Hooper’s opener on April 6, with the Owls also losing their last game on Saturday to Leeds United with a second-half goal from Jack Harrison the only goal of the game.

In between those results Wednesday beat Nottingham Forest 3-0 at home, with goals from George Boyd and two from Marco Matias securing the points.

The last time the two sides met was at Hillsborough in November, when City won 4-0 with two goals from Teemu Pukki, and one from both Emi Buendia and Dennis Srbeny.

The Owls’ top goal-scorers so far this season are Steven Fletcher who has netted 10 and made two assists, and Adam Reach with nine goals and seven assists.
