Sept 30 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to fall on Wednesday, tracking a selloff on Wall Street, with an overnight drop in oil prices also likely to put pressure on the benchmark. Wall Street snapped a three-day winning streak on Tuesday, as investors took money off the table hours before the first U.S. presidential debate, while oil prices dropped over 3% over demand concerns. The local share price index futures fell 0.9%, a 73.1-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index close. The benchmark closed little changed on Tuesday. New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index rose 0.1% in early trade. (Reporting by Arundhati Dutta in Bengaluru; editing by Richard Pullin)
