LiveChester 0-2 Sheffield Wednesday: A beauty from Josh Windass and Korede Adedoyin finds the net...

Sheffield Wednesday are back in action today – and there’s going to be fans there!

Sheffield Wednesday face Chester at Deva Stadium.

The Owls face Chester at Deva Stadium as they look to build on the 3-1 defeat that they suffered at the hands of Celtic earlier in the week, and Darren Moore will no doubt be looking to try out some new combinations as he continues his preparations for the campaign ahead.

It has been reported by The Star that former Everton midfielder, Dennis Adeniran, has agreed terms to join the club for next season, and there’s a chance that – if all goes well - he could even have his first run out in Wednesday colours later this afternoon.

Our man Joe Crann is there at the stadium, so he’ll be bringing you all the updates as they come through – can Wednesday get their first preseason win? Only time will tell…

Chester v Sheffield Wednesday LIVE: Dennis Adeniran starts after penning Owls deal

  • The former Everton man was straight into the XI
  • Wednesday lost to Celtic earlier this week

Two goals, a clean sheet, and chants of ‘We’re all Wednesday aren’t we’ from behind Joe Wildsmith’s goal... Darren Moore will be happy with that. Job done.

A couple of minutes added on here... Two minutes for Wednesday to hold out if they’re going to get a clean sheet.

Just after I was saying how well Hunt had done, he’s just hit an absolute thunderbolt. The keeper could do nothing but watch it go past, but sadly it struck the post and went out. Dele-Bashiru’s follow-up strike was blocked.

Alex Hunt has looked good this afternoon. He’s seen as a Barry Bannan type player, and he’s certainly been playing the lynchpin role up to now. Aside from a couple of freekicks that he’ll have wanted to do better with, he’s looked good.

Dele-Bashiru and Waldock have been pretty solid as well.

Hagan breaks with pace, and some good footwork leads to both Adedoyin and Dele-Bashiru having shots saved by the goalkeeper.

First booking for SWFC

Waldock booked for a late challenge. Nothing malicious, but late nonetheless.

Galvin returns to the field for SWFC, with Dunkley off.

Lost a bit of pace...

Wednesday aren’t quite playing at the same tempo since the break, which is unsurprising given all the changes, and Chester are having a lot more of the ball.

But the young Owls are looking confident and keeping them at bay. The goal will have helped there.

Nice work from Dele-Bashiru and Hunt in the build up, and it’s a top turn from Adedoyin before smashing it past the Chester keeper. Wednesday double their lead, and that’ll be a big goal for the young attacker.

721 people here... It’s no Hillsborough, but it’s fans, and that’s lovely.

Looks like Dunkley is the only player who is staying on for the second half... Plenty of changes from Moore, who has brought on a couple of trialists too.

Wednesday lead 1-0 at the break, and deservedly so. They’ve created plenty of chances, with Paterson, Green and Bannan all with opportunities to get a goal on top of Windass’ delightful opener.

We’re expecting changes in the second half, so it could well be all change. Decent half that, though.

Bannan looking very good here

He bends another one top corner, but this one goes just over... He’s looking good in the centre of the park, and seems to be getting forward a fair bit as well. That’s just the latest time we’ve seen him in the Chester box.

Windass breaks after another good ball from Palmer.. He squares it for Green, but his effort goes over the bar (and the small stand behind).
