Tuesday April 1
Wednesday will be hoping it's third time lucky as they look to drag themselves out of the Championship bottom three with a crucial victory over rejuvinated Coventry City tonight.
City looked to have been heading for League One before former Fulham boss Chris Coleman turned things around at the Ricoh Arena, and they'll be keen to cement their place in next season's Championship with victory over the Owls.
But Owls boss Brian Laws will be hoping for no April Fools with their game in hand against the Sky Blues giving Wednesday the chance to leave the bottom three.
Owls boss Brian Laws told SWFC.co.uk:
'This is our game in hand and these are the ones where we have to start picking up points. We can certainly do the damage in terms of the teams above us and it can improve our situation.
'You can't have a bigger game than this especially as they are in our predicament. If we win we go above them and move up four places so there is a a huge significance. This game is as important to us as it is to five other clubs looking at this one on Tuesday evening.'
Wednesday's biggest concern is over right-back Richard Hinds, who made an early exit from the 1-1 draw with Stoke at the weekend to be replaced by Steve Watson.
And the former Everton and Newcastle man could return to make his first start for a while for Wednesday, filling in for the injured Hinds.
Other than the blow to Hinds, Laws is set to stick with the same team that drew with City.
Enoch Showunmi has returned to Bristol City following his loan spell at S6, meaning Wednesday can't make the same mistake as having six loan players in their matchday squad as Saturday.
Wednesday will be looking towards the goals from Israel international Sahar and his strike partner Deon Burton to put Chris Coleman's men to the sword.
The Sky Blues will come in to the clash full of confidence after their impressive 3-1 victory over play-off hopefuls Plymouth Argyle at the weekend.
But they'll be without striker Leon Best, who enjoyed a loan spell at S6, with the former Southampton man out through suspension for the trip to S6.
The Sky Blues have been short in goals of late but Doyle fired two in the 3-1 success over Plymouth, and will be hoping to do the same to the Owls tonight.
