Wednesday vs. Bury

Hillsborough, Sheffield

Tuesday, March 6


Owls v Bury preview

New Owls boss Dave Jones will take charge of his new team for the first time tonight when Bury visit Hillsborough in npower League One.

Jones, appointed as Wednesday manager last Friday, sat in the stands as the Owls could only manage a draw at relegation-threatened Rochdale.

But he'll take charge of first-team affairs against the Gigg Lane club tonight and look for three crucial points in the battle for promotion.

Vital Quotes:

New Owls boss Dave Jones told the Sheffield Star:

'What I`ve said to the players is they`re in a fantastic position. I`m looking to add to that.

'They seem a really good bunch. They all stick together. You can see that in training. They work hard.

'The biggest thing we have seen so far is there`s a lot of competition. I`ve also said to them they`ve done all right so far; can they go one stage further?'

Wednesday Team News:

Who knows what Wednesday fans can expect for a starting eleven tonight as Dave Jones takes full control for the first time.

Jones could well make a whole host of changes to his starting eleven, especially after sitting in the stands as Wednesday drew 0-0 with Rochdale at the weekend.

Defender Reda Johnson is the only player who could miss out through a hamstring injury, but he'll be given until the last minute to prove his fitness.

Other than that, the Owls have no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

Former Bury players Ryan Lowe and Mike Jones will both be keen to feature.

Player to watch: Dave Jones

Not a player, but he'll be the man everyone's watching in the dugout tonight. He'll be looking for impressive performances from all eleven starters at S6 tonight.

Bury Team News:

Giles Coke will be unavailable to feature against his parent club as part of the loan agreement between Wednesday and Bury.

Coke is on-loan at Gigg Lane until the end of the season after agreeing a switch in January.

Bury have no other injury or suspension doubts going into the match.

They haven't won since mid-January but will come into the game boosted by their come-from-behind 3-3 draw with Huddersfield Town at the weekend.

Player to watch: Steve Schumacher

Schumacher has been a regular in Bury's midfield and has also chipped in with five goals so far this term.

Won't be easy tonight especially with Bury on a high after coming from 3-0 on Saturday to draw with Huddersfield, they did us a favour then and hopefully they'll do us another one tonight by losing 4-0 to a rampant wednesday out to impress DJ.
I see the poll stats are changing ... which just goes to prove that when you're right, you're right, and it takes balls to stick to yer guns when everyone else just doesn't get it WTID
4-1 and our best scoreline all season - ALL season. Enuf said.
**** off megson_out you self righteous ****
Get in Walsall you little dancers!!! :-) Megson out weve not heard from you in weeks months even untill now! How predictable you are! Uto wtid
ozzietheowl,dont think ya right in wot ya saying to Megson_out.Hes only saying wots he been saying all season and even said he would say sorry if he was proven wrong,but that didnt happen and hes entitled to his opinion jus like rest of us on ere.Up The Owls
Megson_out, your right though!! Few more of them against the s&@t sides in the league and we would be well clear of the pigs and town.
Great win, standard guff from megson_out who's clearly been logging on to as many computers as possible to affect the 'Megson poll'. The players owed the fans and GM this result, shame for meggo it wasn't against Chesterfield. Lets hope this is the start of Maddy finding his touch in front of goal.
What a start,come on wednesday !,anything could happen yet,it wont be this sort of score every game so lets keep it real and back DJ and see where we end up. UTO
