Tuesday, February 3
Wednesday and Barnsley will both be hoping the snow stays away as they look for vital wins in the South Yorkshire derby.
For the Owls, it's the first of three derby matches on the spin, with trips to Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers following hot on the heels, with a victory getting Brian Laws and his men off to the perfect start for the trio.
But for Barnsley and Simon Davey, the fixture will be much more than just a derby clash, with the Reds desperate for maximum points to halt their recent poor form, and end their terrible run of results at S6 over recent years.
It could be a case of the same again for Brian Laws as Wednesday take no fresh injury concerns into the clash.
Leon Clarke is set to continue up front with Marcus Tudgay with Francis Jeffers still serving a suspension for his sending off at Nottingham Forest.
Steve Watson could return to give the Owls boss options in midfield.
Johnson has been the biggest threat for the Owls in recent matches and Laws, and the Wednesday fans, will be hoping the Jamaican international offers more of the same on Tuesday night.
Barnsley have bolstered their squad with the additions of three players before the close of the transfer window, with all likely to go into the squad for the trip to S6.
Michael Mifsud, Adam Hammill and Andranik Teymourian have all arrived at Oakwell to bolster Simon Davey's squad, and the trio will all be looking to impress on their debuts.
The tricky attacker has always been a problem to Wednesday defences recently and it's likely to be more of the same on Tuesday night after his move from Coventry City on Monday.
Wednesday wins: 30
arnsley wins: 20
