SHEFFIELD Wednesday will be aiming to repeat or even improve on their admirable home form of last season.

Hillsborough was South Yorkshire’s most difficult place to visit last year, with the Owls relinquishing just 14 points on home soil.

Seventeen victories, four draws and just two defeats on home turf helped the Owls secure automatic promotion and Dave Jones will be hoping for more of the same this season as the Owls look to make an impact on the Championship.

Wednesday’s tally of 55 points (out of 69) gained at home adds up to more than the amount that relegated Doncaster and Chesterfield managed put togethe.

The Owls’ first home game of the season is on Tuesday against Birmingham City.
