The Addicks are managed by former Sheffield United boss Nigel Adkins and finished seventh last season, missing out on a play-off spot on goal difference.

They are currently third favourites for promotion, with the Owls second favourites despite their ongoing financial issues.

Sheffield Wednesday fans won’t have to wait long for the first South Yorkshire derby of the season – their first home match will be against Darren Moore’s old club Doncaster Rovers on 14 August before another home game against Fleetwood Town three days later.
