The Matchroom Stadium, London
Saturday, March 24
Wednesday have the chance to move into the League One automatic promotion spots this weekend when they visit Leyton Orient.
Victory for Dave Jones and his men would move the Owls up to second, with Sheffield United not playing their match against Chesterfield until next week.
Orient are battling to avoid an end-of-season relegation scrap but Wednesday found the going tough against another side at the wrong end of the table in Walsall in midweek.
Three points are a must for Wednesday at the Matchroom Stadium if they're to keep their top-two hopes alive this season.
New loan signing Keith Treacy could make his debut and he told the official SWFC site:
'I've had a long chat with the manager and I'm really looking forward to getting started.
'I've not been playing for Burnley so this is a great opportunity for me to hopefully get some football under the belt.
'I play mainly on the left but I can also play on the right but I'll be happy to play anywhere in the team.'
Orient still need a few wins to make sure they're not involved in an end-of-season relegation scrap and will be battling for every ball against the Owls on Saturday.
They go into the game looking to bounce back from a disappointing 4-1 loss at MK Dons last time out, but having won their last home match 2-0 against Brentford.
Russell Slade's men, who beat the Owls 4-0 in the same fixture last season, could be boosted by the return of a trio of players.
Ryan Dickson, Dean Leacock and George Porter could all be back fit and available for the O's this weekend.
But goalkeeper Jamie Jones is definitely sidelined.
The former Charlton Athletic striker is Orient's top-scorer this season with nine to his name so far. He netted in the midweek loss at MK Dons but will be hoping to net in a victory for his side this weekend.
Owls boss Dave Jones is expected to name new loan pair Nile Ranger and Keith Treacy in his squad for the trip down the M1.
The duo, from Newcastle United and Burnley respectively, signed on Thursday to help boost the Owls' automatic promotion hopes - and Owls fans will be hoping their impact is instant.
It could mean Jones changes his starting line-up for the first time since taking over as boss, especially after a disappointing 2-2 home draw against Walsall in midweek.
Defender Danny Batth will also be assessed on a hamstring injury, and if he misses out Miguel Llera could come in to replace him. Reda Johnson is still struggling to be 100 per cent fit.
Winger Jermaine Johnson will be pushing for a starting role after playing for the first time under Jones as a second-half substitute against the Saddlers.
It could have been Ranger or Treacy, but with Wednesday missing a hatful of chances against Walsall in midweek, Owls fans will be hoping to see the on-loan Newcastle hitman find the back of the net.
Orient wins: 9
Wednesday wins: 18
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 1-0 Orient
Reda Johnson's 19th-minute strike was enough to give Wednesday maximum points when the sides met in S6 earlier this season.
