Match Preview: Sheffield Wednesday vs. Cardiff City

The Bluebirds are on the road this Saturday…

18 January 2018

Cardiff City travel to Hillsborough on Saturday evening as they take on Sheffield Wednesday in front of the Sky Sports Cameras.

The Owls secured their first win under new boss Jos Luhukay in the Emirates FA Cup on Tuesday evening, with a 2-0 win at home to League Two outfit Carlisle United.

Away tickets are still available for this match!

What to expect from the Owls…

The change in personnel comes as Wednesday sit 17th in the Sky Bet Championship table, seven points off the relegation places. Luhukay’s first match at the helm was a 0-0 Steel City Derby with arch rivals Sheffield United, before making a number of changes for Tuesday’s Emirates FA Cup victory.

The Owls do have a number of impressive victories under their belt though, with comprehensive wins over Nottingham Forest and Leeds United earlier in the campaign.

Gary Hooper has been the standout performer for the Owls this season, with 11 goals and three assists in all competitions. The 29 year-old has a good goal scoring return since his move from Norwich in 2016, scoring 29 goals in 76 matches.

Hooper’s strike partner Jordan Rhodes is another consistent player within Wednesday’s ranks, with six goals thus far. The former Huddersfield Town striker has appeared against the Bluebirds for four different sides – Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, the aforementioned Terriers and his current employers.

In the hot seat…

Luhukay began his managerial career in 1998, with German side SV Straelen after he retired from playing for them in the same year.

In fact, his entire career as a manager has been in Germany – taking the reins of teams such as FC Augsburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach before moving to VfB Stuttgart in 2016.

After handing in his resignation just five months with Die Roten, the Dutchman replaced Carlos Carvalhal in South Yorkshire two weeks ago.

Previous meetings…

City’s last victory over Saturday’s opponents came back in 2014, as goals from Sean Morrison and Anthony Pilkington secured a 2-1 for the Bluebirds at Cardiff City Stadium.

The largest victory we’ve ever registered over Wednesday was a 4-0 win back in 1971 at Ninian Park, a double from Alan Warboys, Peter King and Gary Bell securing the victory on that occasion. City also won by the same score line in August 1952.

Away tickets are still available for this match!

Club connections…

Current Wednesday club captain Glenn Loovens made 100 appearances for the Bluebirds between 2005-2008, scoring three goals from the centre of defence.

City's No.3 Joe Bennett has spent time in South Yorkshire on-loan in 2016, sporting the blue and white stripes on three occasions.

Other players to play for both clubs include Darren Purse,  Jay Bothroyd, Stephen McPhail, Kenywne Jones and Roger Johnson.

Match Reports

Match Report: Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 Cardiff City

20 January 2018

Hugh Russell-Jones

Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday shared the points following a competitive Sky Bet Championship match at Hillsborough.

Neil Warnock made three changes from the side that beat Mansfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup in midweek as Sol Bamba, Yanic Wildschut, and debutant Marko Grujić came into the starting eleven.

From the outset of the first half, City dominated possession and their first opportunity came after 12 minutes when Sean Morrison diverted a Joe Ralls free-kick just wide of goal. Then a minute later, Kenneth Zohore had a goal disallowed. Superb strength and technique from the Danish forward after appearing to outmuscle a defender off the ball before striking into the top left corner, but the referee ruled it out, punishing Zohore for an apparent foul.

After 21 minutes, Junior Hoilett led the charge and laid the ball off for Wildschut, although his shot from the left edge of the area was saved well by Joe Wildsmith. A first chance for the Owls came after 28 minutes as Lucas Joao broke away down the left, and cut the ball back for Ross Wallace, who fired over from 30 yards.

Just three minutes, it was the Bluebirds on the front foot once again. Ralls received the ball from Hoilett on the edge of the area, before seeing his left-footed effort go just wide of the right post. Liverpool loanee Grujić was enjoying a strong start to his time at Cardiff City, and came close to a debut goal after 37 minutes. A low drive from 35 yards looked to creep inside the right post before Wildsmith tipped wide.

Despite dominating the first 40 minutes, the Bluebirds were forced back for the final minutes of the half. The Owls had a brilliant opportunity to break the deadlock, when Jordan Rhodes found himself free in the area, but he headed over at close range. Rhodes found himself in front of goal again moments later when Joao played him through with a minute remaining in the half but Neil Etheridge did brilliantly to parry the shot away, and Adam Reach couldn’t capitalise on the rebound.

It was a more even second half – with the Bluebirds and the Owls trading chances. Five minutes after the interval, the Bluebirds came close as Ralls dragged his shot wide of the right post from just outside the box.

After 57 minutes, Rhodes put Joao one-on-one with Etheridge, who did well to rush off his line, and pressure the forward before he dragged the shot wide of the left post. Joao was a threat for the hosts, and went near again five minutes later when he connected with Rhodes’ cross but the City No.25 Etheridge was on hand to deny the forward once again.

Wildschut came closest to opening the scoring after sixty-five minutes. The on-loan Norwich City winger showed superb close control in turning on the edge of the area before firing towards goal only for it to go agonisingly wide of the right post.

There was a real positive for the Bluebirds late in the half as winger Kadeem Harris made his first competitive appearance of the season, returning from injury. Chances though were at a premium in the closing stages of the game, and the referee blew his whistle after the three minutes of added time. The Bluebirds taking a point to move up to third place in the Sky Bet Championship.


Sheffield Wednesday: Wildsmith, Palmer, Venancio, Pudil, Thorniley, Fox, Jones, Wallace (Boyd 80’), Reach, Rhodes (Matias 72’), Joao (Nuhiu 80’). Subs not used: Dawson, Hunt, Pelupessy, Clare.

Cardiff City: Etheridge, Richards, Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Bamba, Bennett, Ralls, Grujic (Paterson 78’), Hoilett (Harris 83’), Wildschut (Mendez-Laing 71’), Zohore. Subs not used: Murphy, Pilkington, Halford, Damour.
