Owls defender Peter Gilbert could make a controversial return to Home Park on Saturday, just weeks after Wednesday reported Argyle to the FA for an illegal approach for the defender.
Argyle were alleged to have made an illegal approach for their former left-back back in August, a move which prompted Wednesday to report the Home Park club to the FA.
But since then, Gilbert, who arrived at S6 from Plymouth via Leicester City, has been a regular feature in the Owls' backline, and has helped Wednesday rise up to a play-off spot in the Championship.
Though whether Laws wants to play him or not at Home Park, Gilbert could miss out through a hamstring problem picked up the victory over Forest, or could even be droppped to the bench with key defender Mark Beevers fit and ready to return from action following injury.
Either way, Gilbert is sure to be the talk of some Plymouth and Wednesday fans on Saturday, though Argyle boss Paul Sturrock revealed that he hasn't heard anything about the matter since the initial complaint.
'I haven't heard anything since then. Nothing seems to have bitten us on the bum so far,' he told This Is Plymouth.
At the time, Owls boss Brian Laws told the official SWFC website: 'Whilst I knew about this and was very disappointed to hear about it I was not going to allow anything to detract from our preparations for the start of the new Championship season.
'Thankfully this has not detracted from our build-up to the new season, but we will deal with the matters accordingly.'
Gilbert handed in a transfer request as a result of the interest of his former club, but Laws insisted his defender would be going nowhere unless his valuation was met.
The saga could well continue when the transfer window re-opens in January.
