Things don't get any easier for Wednesday and Brian Laws, with table-topping West Brom making the trip to Hillsborough looking to heap further woe on the Owls tomorrow.
Wednesday are in danger of being in the bottom three positions over Christmas and will be desperate for three points against an in-form Baggies side.
It'll be a somewhat new-look Owls side too, with loanees Tom Soares and Warren Feeney both set to be part of the squad just days after signing.
Former Owl Chris Brunt told the official West Brom website:
'Sheffield Wednesday fans were good to me after I left and when I was there as well,' said Brunt.
'I'll probably get some stick - that's the way football is - but I'm looking forward to going back.
'I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and I owe them a lot for where I am now.
Both of Wednesday's deadline day loan signings, Warren Feeney and Tom Soares, will go into the squad for the visit of the Baggies.
Stoke City man Soares is expected to get the nod in midfield, with Tommy Miller failing to recover from injury, and he could come in to replace James O'Connor, although Darren Potter's place isn't safe, either.
Feeney could well feature for the bench, with Laws looking to keep faith with Marcus Tudgay and Luke Varney before looking to change his attack.
Wednesday are likely to revert to their usual 4-4-2 formation after changing to 4-3-3 at Ipswich Town last time out.
Francis Jeffers is an injury doubt, but other than that Laws has no fresh injury concerns.
It had to be both loan players on player watch this weekend, with Soares and Feeney both being included in the matchday squad. The duo will both be looking to impress the Wednesday faithful in their first outing for the club.
Wednesday fans will no doubt give a mixed reception to former midfielder Chris Brunt, who will return to his former home ground with the high-flying Baggies.
But, although Roberto Di Matteo's men are high on confidence coming into the game, they do have a few injury problems to deal with.
Jerome Thomas has a back problem, while Felipe Teixera has a thigh problem and Robert Koren has a hernia problem.
All three, as well as former Leicester City man Joe Mattock, and Shelton Martis, are set to be sidelined for the clash.
Although the Baggies have a host of top drawer players as their disposal, it just has to be Brunty for the danger man. No doubt he'll up his game on his return to S6, and will be looking to help fire West Brom to three vital points.
Wednesday wins: 53
West Brom wins: 34
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 0-1 West Brom
Wednesday more than matched their visitors at Hillsborough but were dealt a cruel, cruel blow in the final minute as Kevin Phillips popped up to steal a dramatic late winner.
