Nothing less than three points will do for Wednesday as they continue the fight for automatic promotion by welcoming struggling Yeovil to Hillsborough this weekend.
Gary Johnson's men will arrive in South Yorkshire battling hard to retain their League One status but, with all respect to Yeovil, these are games Wednesday simply must win if they're to achieve a top-two finish this term.
Victory for Gary Megson and his men could see Wednesday move back into the automatic promotion spots should other results go their way, but Yeovil arrive in somewhat rejuvenated mood following the return of Johnson as boss.
Midfielder John Bostock could make his Owls debut against Yeovil. Bostock arrived at Hillsborough until the end of the season from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this week and was a substitute in the 1-1 draw at MK Dons.
Owls boss Gary Megson said it was probably too early to throw Bostock straight into the starting eleven at Stadium:mk but he could play from the start this weekend.
Megson must decide whether to recall skipper Rob Jones to the Owls' defence after he missed Tuesday night's game. Miguel Llera took his place and the Owls boss was delighted with the performance of the Spaniard, saying he did 'brilliantly.'
David Prutton also impressed against the Dons after being used mainly as a substitute over the last few months. Chris Lines was the man to miss out in midweek and he could miss out again this weekend.
Daniel Jones is the only Owls man to definitely miss out through injury. The former Wolves man is sidelined for up to six weeks with a calf injury.
Owls fans got a glimpse of the Tottenham Hotspur loanee as a substitute at MK Dons but he could play from the start on his home debut - and Owls fans will be looking for that creative spark to his play.
A familiar face is set to be in Gary Johnson's squad for the trip to South Yorkshire. Former Owls player and lifelong supporter Richard Hinds penned a short-term deal with Yeovil this week and could make his debut at Hillsborough.
Paul Huntington will be missing, however, through suspension.
The former Leeds United man was sent off in Yeovil's game against Preston North End last time out and will sit in the stands with a three-game ban.
Former Owls hitman Steve Maclean is expected to be named in Yeovil's squad.
No worries about Hinds getting a hostile reception back at S6. The defender was a well-liked figure around Hillsborough, and is a lifelong Wednesday supporter. Interesting to see how he gets on with Yeovil if he plays on Saturday.
Wednesday wins: 3
Yeovil wins: 0
Last Time Out:
Yeovil 2-3 Wednesday
Huish Park, 17/09/2011
A controversial match saw the Owls leave with all three points in the reverse clash back in September. On-loan David McGoldrick gave the Owls the lead before Yeovil hit back with two goals from Kieran Agard - one of which came with the Owls expecting the ball to be returned to them following a stoppage. But second-half strikes from Julian Bennett and Gary Madine gave the visitors maximum points.
