Sheffield Wednesday’s Alex Lopez sends message on Twitter ahead of Preston game

Sheffield Wednesday will face Preston North End at home in the Championship this afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Alex Lopez has taken to social networking site Twitter to rally his teammates and the fans ahead of today’s game against Preston North End at home.

Wednesday will take Preston at Hillsborough in the Championship this afternoon and will be looking to maintain their recent run of good form.

The Owls will head into the encounter on the back of a 2-1 victory over Brentford away from home at Griffin Park in the league.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side have won their last three competitive matches, which included a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park in the third round of the League Cup.

Wednesday are 12th in the Championship table at the moment with 12 points from nine matches, just three points behind sixth-place Birmingham City.

The Owls will be determined to pick up all three points against third-from-bottom Preston this afternoon, and Celta Vigo-owned midfielder Lopez is looking forward to the game.
