Sheffield Wednesday team news
Sheffield Wednesday missed out on promotion from League One last season. Darren Moore’s men were eliminated in the play-offs by Sunderland who ultimately secured their return to English football’s second tier. The Owls have subsequently dipped into the free agency market signing up to six new players including former Rotherham marksman Michael Smith.
Sunderland team news
Following an indifferent pre-season campaign — which saw them register one win across five club friendlies — Sunderland got their Championship season underway with a 1-1 draw against Coventry City at home, though they did bounce back by beating Bristol City 3-2 at the weekend. The Black Cats also came into the new season with six new faces with Premier League youngsters Jack Clarke and Ellis Simms joining their ranks.
