Boundary Park, Oldham
Tuesday, March 8
Wednesday will be looking to bounce back from a woeful performance against Plymouth at the weekend by recording back-to-back away wins when they travel to Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night.
Owls boss Gary Megson kept his men in the dressing room for an hour following the 4-2 loss against the Pilgrims, and he'll demand a big improvement for the trip across the Pennines.
A defensive display similar to the one that bore success at Carlisle two weeks ago will be required against a Latics side who'll be looking for maximum points to keep their League One play-off hopes alive.
Owls midfielder Giles Coke told the official SWFC website:
'It's going to be tough, like it was against Plymouth, but every game is tough.
'We have to go there and put in a much better performance than what we did against Plymouth. We set out to win the game and we didn't do that and as a group we were very disappointed.
'As players, we have to look at ourselves and we need to improve. It's up to us to put it right.'
Oldham boss Paul Dickov told the official Latics website:
'When you look at their players, many have appeared in the Championship and some in the Premier League.
'I am sure new manager Gary Megson will get things right as he is experienced and had a good track record and he won't put up with any nonsense.'
Oldham boss Paul Dickov is still looking for his side to make the play-offs, despite a recent injury-crisis at Boundary Park.
Jean-Yves M'voto, Reuben Hazell, Dale Stephens and Dean Furman will all be missing for Athletic.
Furman was due to return from a two-match suspension but has been struck down by illness and is set to miss the clash with Wednesday.
Hazell could return following injury, but he's more likely to have to settle for a place on the bench rather than going straight back into the starting eleven.
Dickov could change his hand though, following a 3-0 loss to high-flying Bournemouth on Saturday. The former Leicester City and Manchester City striker will be looking for a big improvement from his side.
Feeney may not strike fear into the hearts of Wednesdayites following a less-than-successful loan stint at S6 recently, but it'll be interesting to see if he comes up with the goods to prove a point. The Northern Ireland striker has yet to score in the league from ten appearances for the Latics.
Wednesday have no new injury or suspension worries for the trip across the Pennines but boss Gary Megson could make changes following the 4-2 reverse against Plymouth.
Giles Coke returned from suspension and was a second-half substitute on Saturday, but is likely to be recalled to the starting eleven, with Liam Palmer the man likely to drop to the bench.
Megson could also be tempted to include Jermaine Johnson from the start against his former club following his second-half impact on his return at the weekend.
Paul Heffernan is another former Latic in the Wednesday squad, but he's likely to have to make do with a spot on the bench.
The striker has failed to score in the last few games and, as the Owls' loan striker, will be looking to get back on the scoresheet at Boundary Park to get the Owls back to winning ways.
Oldham wins: 14
Wednesday wins: 19
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 0-0 Oldham
A bore draw was the result the last time the side's men, in the reverse fixture at Hillsborough last September.
v Notts County (H) - 12/03/11
