Dean Court, Bournemouth
Tuesday, February 22
Gary Megson's task of securing a first win as Wednesday boss gets no easier on Tuesday night when his side makes the long trip to promotion-chasing Bournemouth on Tuesday night.
Owls fans will have been hoping it was they who sat in the top two as March approaches, but Bournemouth have been a surprise package this season and sit second going into the clash with Wednesday.
Bournemouth's home form is the best in the division, having won eleven, drawn three and lost just two of their games at Dean Court so far this season.
In contrast, Wednesday have one of the worst away records in the division and will face a big task of taking anything away from their trip to the south coast.
Owls boss Gary Megson said, following the 3-0 loss against Birmingham:
"Our fans deserve better. Their support is as good as anything in the country and, given the fact that we are a team that is struggling in Division One and has not won for 10 games, it is a bit humbling.
"If we can show half as much desire and passion as those supporters show, we will be okay - but we are not."
Jayden Stockey is set to be included in Bournemouth's squad after he was recalled from a loan spell at Dorchester Town to cover for the injured Ben Williamson.
Williamson suffered an ankle injury in training and is expected to be missing for up to three weeks for the Cherries.
Former Owls striker Lee Bradbury is the the boss at Dean Court but he won't take it easy on his former club as he aims to take Bournemouth into the Championship via automatic promotion this season.
The Cherries have no other injury or suspension worries for the visit of the Owls.
Feeney provided the cross for Bournemouth's goal in their 1-1 stalemate against Huddersfield Town at home on Saturday and he'll be key in Bournemouth's attacks again against Wednesday.
Striker Gary Madine is expected to return to the starting line-up after he was cup-tied for the FA Cup clash at Birmingham City on Saturday.
Madine is expected to return to the Owls attack alongside skipper Clinton Morrison, with Neil Mellor the man likely to make way and make do with a spot on the bench.
Young midfielder Liam Palmer has a good shout of a first league start for Wednesday after impressing in midfield as a second-half sub on Saturday. He could partner Isaiah Osbourne in the Owls midfield.
Richard Hinds has also put his hand up for selection after he was brought on at St Andrews early in the game - both Michael Morrison and Mark Reynolds' starting roles will be under threat.
Wednesday may be woeful at the back at present but they'll also have to score goals if they're to get them out of their current poor position. Madine has been the man finding them of late and he'll be fully fit after missing out at St Andrews at the weekend.
Bournemouth wins: 4
Wednesday wins: 3
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 1-1 Bournemouth
Ryan Garry put Bournemouth ahead in the game at Hillsborough earlier this season before Neil Mellor rescued a point for the hosts with a late leveller. Wednesday have never beaten Bournemouth in the league, with all their wins coming in cup competitions.
