IT'S back to FA Cup action for Wednesday tonight when they look to book a place in the fifth round with victory over Blackpool at Hillsborough.
A trip to Goodison Park to take on Premier Leaague Everton awaits the winner of the fourth round replay clash at what's set to be a chilly S6.
The Owls were a minute away from progression without the need for a replay when Clinton Morrison put Gary Megson's men on-course for victory at Bloomfield Road in the original contest.
But that man Kevin Phillips, who so often loves to score late on against Wednesday, netted a last-gasp penalty to level.
There has to be a winner tonight...
Both sides will be keen for progression into the next round but, with the fixtures piling up for Wednesday this month, boss Gary Megson may ring the changes once again.
The Owls will already be without former Blackpool man Miguel Llera, who is cup-tied, and Rob Jones has been struggling through injury of late, meaning there could be a recall for Mark Beevers at the back.
Mike Jones is also cup-tied from his time with Bury, meaning Chris Sedgwick could get the nod in midfield, while Jermaine Johnson is set to play to keep his purple patch of form ticking over.
Megson rested both Gary Madine and Chris O'Grady from the original cup tie and he could do the same again, with Clinton Morrison and Ryan Lowe eager for starting roles.
The Jamaican has been in a purple patch at form and is expected to play some part against Blackpool, whether it be from the start or as an impact substitute.
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is also set to rotate his squad with his focus very much on the league.
The Seasiders are in a rich vein of form of late, moving up to fourth in the Championship, and will be full of confidence for the trip to Hillsborough.
Ian Evatt will be missing through suspension, however, and Kevin Phillips and Roman Bednar could get starting roles in attack after featuring from the bench recently.
Keith Southern will miss out through an ankle injury.
Phillips may be 39 but he shows no signs of slowing down in the goal stakes. His impact has been from the bench in recent weeks, but he could get the chance to show he can do it from the start at Hillsborough.
Wednesday wins: 39
Blackpool wins: 24
Last Time Out:
Blackpool 1-1 Wednesday
Bloomfield Road, 28/01/12
Wednesday were heading for the FA Cup fifth round when the sides met late last month. Clinton Morrison fired them ahead but Kevin Phillips scored a late, late penalty to send the game to a replay.
v Exeter City (A) - 11/02/12
v Stevenage (H) - 14/02/12
