Sheff Wednesday’s new faces to earn a draw at Burnley
Wednesday are rumoured to have offered Fulham £10million for leading scorer Ross McCormack on transfer deadline day which suggests that the club’s owners are serious about wanting Premier League football back at Hillsborough.
After all the years of counting the pennies, Owls’ fans are getting giddy that their team is apparently prepared to talk in terms of millions for new players, though the club will need to be careful that they aren’t playing their hand too early as prices will surely soar if it’s thought that resources are plentiful.
McCormack stayed put in west London but Wednesday are clearly still in the market for a new striker, which has annoyed some of those already at the club with Atdhe Nuhui speaking out in the local press this week.
Barry Bannan was a deadline day addition, however, and the Scottish international midfielder could join defender Michael Turner and Watford pair Daniel Pudil and Fernando Forestieri in making his debut for Wednesday at Burnley this weekend.
Sheff Wednesday’s squad is now so big, however, that there are going to plenty who won’t make the matchday squad and a few more might be on their way out of Hillsborough now that the loan window is open.
Burnley have lost several key players since relegation from the Premier League but Sean Dyche’s side are in the process of recovering from a slow start and have won their last two games with Michael Keane on the score-sheet on both occasions. They’ve lost striker Lukas Jutkiewicz to serious injury, however, and Sam Vokes has had a busy week with the Wales squad.
Wednesday have a terrific recent record at Turf Moor. They won a Carling Cup tie there last year and have won two and drawn four of six Championship fixtures at Burnley since 2003. Another draw could be on the cards this Saturday (23/10 in our Full Time Result betting). A 1-1 correct score could also pay dividends at 23/5 and we offer Evens for Both Teams to Score.
The match kicks off at 3.00pm on Saturday, September 12th at Turf Moor
