Will the big man start today?

The manager spoke about the new boys ahead of today's clash

Well that's a bit exciting..

We were expecting changes, but that many? And that attacking?

It's fair to say the Owls won't die wondering at Oakwell today.

Congratulations to nine-year-old Wednesdayite Shay O'Grady who together with some friends has walked the 13 miles from Hillsborough to Oakwell this morning.. and got here in plenty of time!

It's all to raise money for Bluebell Wood Hospice.. he's smashed his £1000 target and has raised a whopping £8,775 so far.. and counting! Anyone wishing to donate can do so via this LINK.

1' - Aaaaaaaand we are off

There's a tingle of excitement in the air as Barry Bannan gets us underway here at Oakwell to the strains of 'Hi ho'..

Let's av it.

The full-back, over on the left today, suffers a knock and is down for a little while.

He appears to have shrugged it off and will continue.

Just once or twice Wednesday have been a little sloppy in possession. Nothing has been close to being punished yet but they'll want to sharpen up.

15' - GOOALLL WEDNESDAY!!!

And it's a goal on debut for JOSH WINDASS!! It fell kindly to him in the box and he smashed it past a hapless Brad Collins.
