The Owls have won the last three in a row.

Charlton Form


Charlton missed out on the League One play-offs on goal difference last season as they failed to secure an immediate return to the Championship.

Nigel Adkins' side won their final two games of the season with victories over Lincoln 3-1 and champions Hull 1-0, but it wasn't enough to get them into the top six.

In pre-season, Charlton started with a 2-1 loss to Celtic before defeating non-league Welling United 3-0 and Dartford 2-1.

A 1-1 draw with Championship side Reading and 2-2 stalemate with Premier League Crystal Palace followed. They finalised preparations with a 1-0 loss to Championship Fulham.

Charlton Team News


Charlton have brought in goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray from Portsmouth, midfielders Sean Clare and George Dobson from Oxford and Sunderland and forward Jayden Stockley from Preston.

Young centre-back Akin Famewo has also joined on loan for the season from Norwich.

Among the departures from last season are goalkeeper Ben Amos, midfielders Darren Pratley, Erhun Oztumer, Junior Quitirna and Andrew Shinnie and striker Chuks Aneke.

Ben Purrington, Alex Gilbey and Ronnie Schwartz are not fit enough for the season opener.

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday finished bottom of the Championship last season with manager Darren Moore unable to save the club from the drop after taking over the reins.

The Owls had a mixed pre-season with wins over non-league Alfreton 2-0 and Chester 1-0 and League Two Port Vale 2-1.

They also lost 3-1 to Scottish Premiership Celtic and 2-0 and 2-1 respectively against Championship outfits Barnsley and West Brom.

Last Saturday, Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 with Huddersfield in the EFL Cup before losing on penalties.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News


The Owls start the League One season without forward Josh Windass, who has a hamstring injury.

Olamide Shodipo was withdrawn after 33 minutes of the EFL Cup tie with Huddersfield and is doubtful. Jaden Brown replaced him in that game.
