Sheffield Wednesday will travel to Wham Stadium this weekend as they go head-to-head with hosts Accrington Stanley in a League One match. Fresh off a 4-1 victory against Crawley Town in the recent FA Cup, Stanley is now looking for a win in front of their home fans as they are hoping to steer further from the relegation zone.

The Owls, on the other hand, suffered a defeat against Southampton on penalty kicks in the EFL Cup earlier this week, their first loss in all competitions since October 4 against Plymouth Argyle. In the match against the Premier League side, Wednesday pushed them to the limit and even gave the Saints a huge scare when Josh Windass scored the opening goal, but Alex McCarthy stopped Dominic Iorfa’s penalty kick to eliminate the Owls.

The Owls are currently in third place in League One, just three points behind the automatic promotion spots, and they advanced to the second round of the FA Cup last weekend with a 2-0 victory against Morecambe on the strength of goals from Josh Windass and Alex Mighten.

Darren Moore’s side has performed particularly well this season, especially in their away games, and that gives Moore hope despite the crushing loss to Southampton. Stanley will also have to take note of the fact that the South Yorkshire outfit has only conceded five goals on the road this season. Here’s what you need to know about the match, including if you can watch it live.
