The Owls will be eager to build on their 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers last weekend, and it’s unlikely that Darren Moore will be making too many changes after such a professional display at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wednesday go up against a Forest Green side that have won one out of four games in League One so far since their promotion at the end of last season, but it has to be noted that their one victory – against Bristol Rovers – came away from home.

Three subs, actually.

A couple of subs coming...

Adeniran and Wilks getting kitted up.

Bannan with the freekick...

Just misses the target... Things have calmed down a bit now. But FGR not able to get into the Wednesday half at all.

A wicked cross into the box finds Gregory, and he bundles it home from close range. Lovely ball in from Bakinson there.

Palmer brought down?

Not according to the ref! He cut onto his right inside the box, and seemed to get clipped, but the ref waves play on.

Meanwhile, Gregory is down in the box. Seems to be holding his face.

Second half underway

FGR kick off for the fifth time today.
