The Owls have struggled and are currently nine points from safety with just three points from their first 12 games. They recently appointed Danny Röhl as their new manager after parting ways with Xisco Munoz. Röhl’s debut match in charge was a close game against Watford, even though they ultimately lost.
Schumacher has warned his players not to underestimate Sheffield Wednesday, especially since they have a new manager and are likely to be highly motivated to improve their performance. He acknowledged that there has been disruption and challenges behind the scenes at Sheffield Wednesday, but the change in leadership might bring new ideas and motivation to the team.
Despite their difficulties, Schumacher believes that Sheffield Wednesday, with their core squad and new players, still possess the quality to pose a challenge. He pointed out their strong performance in League One last season, where they were part of an intense promotion battle.
Plymouth Argyle, currently in 21st place, is aware of the importance of the match and will look to replicate their strong home form, as seen in their victory over Norwich. On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday is determined to secure three points in this game before their upcoming South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham United on Sunday.
