Newcastle take on Championship side Sheffield Wednesday aiming to rediscover their winning touch and confidence.

The Toon are yet to win a Premier League game this season, but could be in for a tough test against an ambitious Wednesday side.

The Owls themselves are still gelling as a team after a summer spending spree, and Carlos Carvalhal and Steve McClaren are both new faces in the dugouts for their sides.

Newcastle lost 2-1 at home to Watford at the weekend, and fans have begun to grow frustrated, with hopes that this season would be different, after £50 million was spent on new players in the summer.

Wednesday currently sit 14th in the Championship table with just two wins and three draws from eight games played so far. A victory away at Newcastle could help galvanise their season, and be disastrous for the home side.
