Saturday, November 29
Wednesday boss Brian Laws will be hoping to celebrate signing a new two-year deal at Hillsborough with three more points against an up-and-down Norwich City side at Hillsborough on Saturday.
Tuesday night's 2-0 victory at Blackpool will have given Laws' troops a much-needed boost after the weekend defeat by Coventry City.
But the Canaries' hit and miss form so far this season will no doubt cause problems for the Wednesday boss in his selection and approach.
Despite some high-profile signings in the shape of Arturo Lupoli and Leroy Lita, City have struggled so far this season, despite tonking current league leaders Wolves on home soil not long ago to show signs of just what they can do.
Wednesday boss Brian Laws could well throw new loan signing Bartosz Slusarski straight into the squad to face the Canaries tomorrow having seen Deon Burton leave for Charlton.
Slusarski could have to settle for a place on the bench after haivng little first team experience so far this season, with the chance for Francis Jeffers to return to the starting line-up alongside Leon Clarke.
Akpo Sodje remains sidelined for at least another four weeks through injury.
Tony McMahon will play his final game in the blue and white stripes after enjoying a successful loan spell with the Owls from Middlesbrough, while Tommy Spurr will also undergo a late fitness test.
The Polish striker will no doubt be hoping to hit the ground running in his second loan spell at S6, as will boss Brian Laws, with Slusarski set to prove he's more than a good replacement for the departing Deon Burton.
Norwich have been given a boost ahead of the clash with the return of duo Gary Doherty and Darel Russell from suspension, but Elliot Omozusi and Ryan Bertrand are both injury doubts.
The experienced former Manchester City man Antoine Sibierski will also be available for selection for the Canaries.
But with just 16 first team players to choose from, manager Glenn Roeder has been given little choice in his squad selection for the trip to S6.
He told the official Norwich City site: 'We have 16 fit seniors, we've got to a situation where unfortunately at the moment the squad picks itself, it's not quite the situation where the team picks itself yet, but we are very short on numbers at the moment. We need to have a bit of luck in that department over the next few weeks, now through December, because it's such a heavy programme.'
The Reading striker has been in top form since his loan arrival at Carrow Road and will be hoping to fire the Canaries to victory with his power and pace on Saturday.
Wednesday wins: 20
Norwich wins: 14
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 4-1 Norwich
Wednesday took it to the last game of the season last term to secure their Championship status but did so in fine style infront of a full house at Hillsborough. Darren Huckerby gave the Canaries the early lead before a brace for Deon Burton, and goals for Ben Sahar and Leon Clarke sealed the win.
Wednesday: Grant, Buxton, Beevers, Wood, McMahon, Tudgay, McAllister (Watson 46), O'Connor, Johnson (Esajas 57), Burton, Clarke. Subs Not Used: Jeffers, Smith, Simek.
Norwich: Marshall, Otsemobor, Drury, Kennedy, Bertrand (Fotheringham 46), Croft, Clingan, Pattison, Bell (Lupoli 88), Sibierski (Hoolahan 46), Lita. Subs Not Used: Nelson, Cureton.
