Match Preview - Sheffield Wednesday v Rovers

25 October 2022

A trip to Hillsborough awaits the Gas

Rovers head to Hillsborough on Wednesday evening to take on Sheffield Wednesday in Sky Bet League One. Joey Barton's side will be buoyed after Saturday's second-half comeback against Plymouth Argyle. More than 700 Gasheads will be making the trip tomorrow, with the game also being shown live on Sky Sports (kick-off 8pm).

Manager's Preview

Boss Joey Barton has said that Rovers have 'everything to gain and nothing to lose' ahead of the trip to Hillsborough:

"I think they went to a back three on Saturday and they’ve got some really talented boys. Josh Windass played with me and Jordan Rossiter at Rangers and is a really talented kid, Michael Smith, who they took from Rotherham and Lee Gregory and the quality Barry Bannan and Will Vaulks in midfield produce.

They are a top side. Hillsborough will be full and we’ll go there with a spring in our step because of the second half against Plymouth, but also with no fear. We are going there to attack them and we’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose."


Last Time Out

Form Guide

Darren Moore's side sits just outside the automatic promotion places in the league standings, currently residing in third place with 30 points to their name so far this season. Currently three games without defeat, The Owls could go second in the table with a win tomorrow evening, if results go their way elsewhere. 


In Wednesday's last game, a 1-1 draw away at Lincoln City, Lee Gregory netted his fourth league goal of the season inside 10 minutes, before Daniel Mândroiu equalised a minute after the second half had begun. Previous to the Lincoln game, The Owls had beaten Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town.


The previously-mentioned Gregory is tied in first place with Josh Windass in the top goalscorer standing for Sheffield Wednesday. Windass also holds four assists to his name in the league so far this season.

Match Reports

Match Report - Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Rovers

26 October 2022

A big point at Hillsborough for the Gas.

A second-half strike from Josh Coburn secured a point for Rovers against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Joey Barton made two changes to the side that drew with Plymouth Argyle last Saturday. In came James Gibbons and Josh Coburn who replaced Luca Hoole and Harry Anderson. 


The first clear-cut chance of the game fell to Rovers. Aaron Collins was played in one-on-one with Wednesday 'keeper David Stockdale. Aaron delayed before pulling the trigger and Stockdale was out quickly to smother the effort.


Belshaw was called into action for the first time in the tie shortly after Collins' effort. Josh Windass let fly from the edge of Rovers' penalty area and Belshaw was down smartly to push the attempt away from the target.

Rovers were forced into an early change. Ryan Loft being forced off with an injury saw Harry Anderson enter the fray after half an hour on the clock.

The hosts came close to taking the lead after 35 minutes. A dangerous ball was whipped in by Owls captain Barry Bannan towards the lurking Johnson who was creeping in at the back post. A crucial touch from Gibbons took the ball away from the Wednesday attacker but almost rolled into his own net with Belshaw on hand quickly to clear the danger.

Rovers looked to hit the hosts on the counter-attack following the chance. Collins raced past the Wednesday defence and was blatantly pulled back as he rushed past the opposing defenders. Referee Langford waved play on with the chance ending with Stockdale saving Coburn's shot. 


Wednesday opened the scoring just before the interval. Banna's free-kick was hit deep and met by Palmer who helped it into the middle of the penalty area where it was met by Smith who made no mistake with his header. 

Belshaw heroics kept Rovers within one of the hosts. The Rovers no.1 did superbly well to deny Gregory's close-range effort.

The Gas had themselves level just before the hour mark. Antony Evans played a pass in towards Collins who cleverly let the ball run through to Josh Coburn who calmly lobbed the ball over the onrushing Stockdale and into the net in front of the travelling Gasheads.


As the clock edged closer to the 90-minute mark, Belshaw was yet again called into action. Our no.1 pulled out a stunning save from close range to deny Smith's headed effort from about five yards out.

There was to be no late dramatics at Hillsborough as both sides would have to settle for a point. 

Next up for Rovers is a trip to Pride Park to take on Derby County on Saturday, 29th October. (3pm)

Wednesday: Stockdale, Palmer, Ihiekwe, McGuiness, Brown, Johnson, Byers, Bannan, Windass, Smith, Gregory.

Subs: Dawson, Vaulks, Iorfa, Wilks, Paterson, Dele-Bashiru, Mighten.

Rovers: Belshaw, Gordon, Gibson, Thomas, Gibbons, Finley (c), Rossiter, Evans, Collins, Loft, Coburn.
