Ticket Information: Sheffield Wednesday

20 December 2018
The Hillsborough clash is the teams’ final game before Christmas and will stand as the season’s mid-point and a chance to reflect and look ahead to the second and deciding part of the campaign.
Alex Neil’s side go into the game looking to make it three wins on the bounce, and with just one defeat in their last 12 matches, they will be optimistic, despite the horrific injury list that has ripped through the squad in recent weeks and months, leaving the manager with limited options, particularly in the forward areas.
For the Owls, they will be looking for an early Christmas present, after a difficult couple of weeks, however, with a talented and expensively assembled squad at the disposal of manager Jos Luhukay, PNE know that it will be a very tough test of their form.
