The City Ground, Nottingham
Tuesday, January 27
Wednesday look to continue their impressive league start to 2009 with a tough trip to a rejuvenated Nottingham Forest side on Tuesday night.
Forest, many people's favourites for the drop earlier in the season, have enjoyed a vast improvement in performances of late, aided by the appointment of Billy Davies.
And former Forest defender Brian Laws knows the trip will be tougher than it could well have been before Christmas.
But Wednesday themselves will travel to the City Ground in good form, following the 4-1 stuffing of Charlton Athletic last time out and an encouraging 1-1 draw at Ipswich Town last time on their travels.
Forest boss Billy Davies will be forced to make at least one change to the side that drew with rivals Derby County in the FA Cup at the weekend with winger Paul Anderson injured for the next six weeks.
Arron Davies and Garath McClearly will both be chomping at the bit to impress Davies by coming in to replace Anderson out wide for the hosts.
Centre-back Wes Morgan could be ready to return to the heart of the Forest defence after missing out at Pride Park to be with his ill son, although Kelvin Wilson could continue in his place.
The former Cardiff City and Norwich hitman took tim to settle into life at the City Ground but has since got a lease of life that could well see the best of Earnshaw return under the guidance of Billy Davies.
Wednesday have been boosted the permanent capture of versatile defender Lewis Buxton, who made his loan move permanent this week to allow him to continue in the squad for Tuesday night.
Laws could also be boosted with the return of Leon Clarke from injury to give him more options in attack, though Francis Jeffers and Marcus Tudgay are set to continue in attack following their goals against Charlton.
With the Owls not in action at the weekend, Steve Watson could also be available to return to the squad after picking up a toe injury.
Wednesday fans, and Jeffers himself, will no doubt be hoping goals from Jeffers are like the proverbial London bus - he doesn't get one in ages and then a few come at once. His confidence will no doubt be boosted with his first goal in a year against Charlton last time out.
Forest: Smith, Chambers, Wilson, Breckin, Lynch (McCleary 46), Anderson (Davies 78), Perch, McGugan, Cohen, Tyson, Earnshaw (Garner 90). Subs Not Used: Darlow, Byrne, Thornhill, Heath.
Wednesday:Grant, Buxton, Beevers, Wood, Spurr, Johnson (Small 64), O'Connor, Potter (McAllister 84), Gray, Tudgay, Jeffers (Boden 74). Subs Not Used: Hinds, Modest.
Forest wins: 47
Wednesday wins: 55
