Bolton Wanderers take on Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday 27 November. With that said, bwfc.co.uk have produced five things to take into this midweek evening clash.
1. Squad Update
During Monday’s press conference in preview on the Sheffield Wednesday away clash, manager Phil Parkinson spoke to bwfc.co.uk and gave an update on the squad.
Parkinson said: “We have picked up a few bumps and bruises from the last game.”
“Will Buckley and Josh Magennis in particular picked up knocks but fortunately we took them off at the right times.
“We will take a big squad with us tomorrow afternoon and pick the team accordingly.”
2. A Game to Remember
In March 2018, Wanderers visited Hillsborough as Phil Parkinson’s men took on Wednesday and on 78 minutes, George Boyd looked to have won it for Jos Luhukay’s side.
However in stoppage time, step forward Aaron Wilbraham to earn a point for the Whites!

3. The Boss
Jos Luhukay took over the role as Wednesday boss in January 2018, replacing Carlos Carvalhal and becoming the Owls’ 33rd manager in the entire club’s history.
Following a ten-year playing career in Germany and his native Holland, Luhukay took over as SV Straelen boss just a month after retiring.
It wasn’t until 2007, when he was managing Borussia Monchengladbach, that he earned his first managerial honour by with the 2. Bundesliga.
He then finished runners-up with FC Ausburg in 2010/11 in the same division, followed by becoming champions again with Hertha BSC in 2012/13.
Following a short spell at VfB Stuttgart, Luhukay joined Wednesday in his first managerial role in English football.
4. New Faces at Hillsborough
