Preview: Sheffield Wednesday v Rovers

Tony Mowbray’s men are looking to make it back-to-back victories

14 March 2019

Rovers are on the road this weekend as they travel to face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, (3pm).

Here’s our guide to the game…

STATE OF PLAY

The Blues got back to winning ways with a dominant 3-0 win over Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park on Tuesday night. 

Danny Graham scored his 50th Rovers goal to open the scoring, and also bagged a second, before Bradley Dack finished off the scoring late on. 

That result moves Rovers up to 16th place in the Sky Bet Championship table, 11 points adrift of the play-offs and the same amount clear of the relegation zone. 

As always, we'll be bringing you team news and live updates on the game at Hillsborough via social media. Fans can follow all the action on our official Twitter account, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm. 

TEAM NEWS

Rovers will give late checks to Danny Graham, Amari’i Bell and Jack Rodwell ahead of the game. 

Rodwell has missed the last two but has a chance of making the squad, while Graham is struggling with a hamstring injury - but could also be passed fit.  

Bell is a doubt after limping off, while Charlie Mulgrew is a major doubt with a hamstring injury and Darragh Lenihan is still ruled out.

Harry Chapman and Jacob Davenport will play for the U23s. 

OUR OPPONENTS

Sheffield Wednesday are yet to lose under new boss Steve Bruce, who has turned their fortunes around since taking the Hillsborough hotseat. 

Nine games and 17 points later, the Owls sit in 11th position, four points outside the play-offs spots. 

Wednesday beat Bolton Wanderers 2-0 on Tuesday night thanks to strikes from Steven Fletcher and Newcastle loanee Rolando Aarons. 

The Blues were victorious in the reverse fixture at Ewood, with Graham netting his first Rovers hat-trick in a 4-2 win.
