The Owls, beaten play-off semi-finalists last season, are the visitors on August 5.

North End then go to Elland Road to play Leeds United the following weekend, with the Carabao Cup trip to Accrington Stanley in between.

A tough looking August continues with a midweek visit to Derby County, a home game with beaten play-off finalists Reading and a visit to Middlesbrough.
