Fulham Empire Vs Sheffield Wednesday Rebels
Venue: Cottage Star
The Imperial Forces -- under orders from cruel Darth Slaviša Jokanović
hold Princess Chansiri hostage,
in their efforts to quell the rebellion against The Wednesday Empire.
Atdhe Nuhiu and Carlos Carvalhal,
captain of the South Stand, work together with the companionable droid duo TN-GO
and R-3WO (Ross Wallace) to rescue the beautiful princess,
help the Rebel Alliance, and restore Faith and Victory to the Wednesday.
Sheyi Ojo could make his Fulham debut after joining on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
The Cottagers will be without Lucas Piazon after he broke his leg in their midweek draw at Leeds,
while Tomas Kalas returns from a one-match ban.
Glenn Loovens could return from a back injury for Wednesday,
although Frederico Venancio may deputise.
The Owls must decide whether to recall forward Fernando Forestieri after a reported training ground lightsaber incident.
Fulham have kept just one clean sheet in their last 16 matches against Sheffield Wednesday in all competitions (4-0 in Dec 2014),
with Marcus Bettinelli keeping net in that clash.
The Owls won all three matches vs Fulham in 2015-16 but failed to win either Championship fixture against the Lilywhites in 2016-17 (D1 L1).

Sheffield Wednesday have lost just one of their last six Championship away games (W3 D2), though it was their season opener against Preston.
