Loftus Road, London
Monday, April 13
Wednesday have the perfect chance to bounce straight back from their home defeat to Derby on Saturday with a trip to manager-less Rangers on Easter Monday.
The Owls' away form has been as good as anyone in the league recently, and they'll be looking for more good fortune on the road in the capital against an R's side that's failed to live up to expectations this term.
Paulo Sousa was sacked as manager of the Loftus Road club last week and the R's will very much be an unknown quantity with a caretaker boss at the helm for today's clash.
Brian Laws told www.swfc.co.uk following Saturday's defeat:
'I can't have a go at the players effort and commitment in the second half. We went a bit more direct looking for those opportunities to score and we would have been happy to go away with a result from that but it wasn't to be so we will just have to look to get back to winning ways on Monday at QPR.'
Gareth Ainsworth will take charge of the R's for the first time on home soil since taking caretaker control of the club following Sousa's departure.
Ainsworth will still be without the injured Heidar Helguson through a hamstring injury, while Martin Rowlands, Akos Buzsaky and Patrick Agyemang are still sidelined.
The R's will be keen to bounce back from their 1-0 reverse at Burnley on the road on Saturday.
Routledge would be a threat in any Championship side, and some Premier League side's, and it'll be no different come 3pm on Monday with the Owls defence having a speedy and tricky winger on their hands.
Wednesday boss Brian Laws is set to ring the changes following Saturday's home defeat to Derby County.
Tommy Spurr is likely to go straight back into the back four after missing the clash with the Rams through suspension, while Mark Beevers will also be pushing for a return.
Leon Clarke, Akpo Sodje and Etienne Esajas will all be looking for a starting place after featuring as substitutes following their returns from injury.
Luke Varney will also return to bolster Laws' attacking options after the striker was ineligible selection against Derby due to his loan contract, giving Laws plenty of attacking options.
The on-loan frontman has already made an an encouraging start to his loan spell at S6 and will be fresh for his trip to London after sitting out Saturday's home defeat.
