EARLY SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY TEAM NEWS

24 September 2021

Couple of changes expected for Owls clash

Matt Penney is likely to start tomorrow afternoon against his former side, Sheffield Wednesday, Paul Cook has confirmed. 

The left-back looks set to replace Hayden Coulson in the starting XI after the Middlesbrough loanee was withdrawn through injury in last weekend's win at Lincoln.

While Paul would've liked to have had the option to name the same team against the Owls, Town's boss says that it presents an opportunity for the players who will come into the fold.

"We have had an injury or two during the week which is disappointing so we won’t be naming the same starting XI," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.

"It would’ve been great to pick the same team again but unfortunately we can’t do that. For one disappointment, there’s always a bit of positivity. It gives somebody else a chance.

"Matt Penney comes in for Hayden Coulson which is a great opportunity for Matt against his former club. We might then make a change or two based on injuries rather than anything else."

A crowd of over 20,000 is expected at Portman Road for tomorrow's game. Be part of what is set to be another great atmosphere by purchasing tickets here.
