Sheffield Wednesday

Not only that, but Sheffield was eliminated by Sunderland in the semi-finals after conceding the deciding goal in the injury time of the second leg. On the bright side, the team started the new season well, with one win and one draw.

Meanwhile, Michael Smith and Akin Famewo are carrying slight injuries and they are doubtful for this game.

Dawson – J.Hunt, Heneghan, Iorfa – Palmer, Dele-Bashiru, Bakinson, Byers, James – Gregory, Sow

Sunderland

After many unsuccessful attempts, Sunderland finally managed to earn promotion back to Championship, the second rank of English football. The team finished last season in League One in fifth place, but then managed to eliminated Sheffield Wednesday in the semis and beat Wycombe in the final at Wembley. The team also started the new season in good form, with a win and a draw in the first couple of rounds.

Another positive for the team is the fact that they have no injured or suspended players at the moment.
