Championship

Joao and Penney must start against Norwich today

Joao and Penney must start against Norwich today

Sheffield Wednesday haven’t enjoyed the rub of the green in recent times as they continue to disappoint under Jos Luhukay.

The Owls suffered their third successive Championship defeat against Birmingham City last time out, so they’ll be desperate to return to winning ways later on today.

Interestingly, Sheffield Wednesday will welcome Norwich City to Hillsborough in their next Championship fixture. The Canaries have been in sublime form recently and have their sights set on securing a play-off place, so the Owls will be up against it once again later on today.

With that in mind, Jos Luhukay must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Sheffield Wednesday stars…

Lucas Joao

Lucas Joao just hasn’t been able to find his feet in front of goal in recent times, which forced him to take a seat on the substitutes’ bench last time out.

Indeed, the Portuguese forward has displayed moments of class and promise in the current campaign but he hasn’t found the back of the net in his last three appearances, despite scoring five so far this season.

Nevertheless, the 25-year-old must get the nod later on today against Norwich City as he could cause them some problems by making use of his height and heading ability.

Matt Penney

Matt Penney has been one of the standout performers for the Owls in the current campaign, with his constant hard work and defensive solidity helping his side massively.

The left-back signed a new contract at the club recently, so he’ll be desperate to celebrate by putting in a promising performance to help secure all three points for his side.
