Saturday, September 1
Wednesday will look to continue their unbeaten start to their Championship campaign at rock-bottom Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Owls are second after three matches and could find themselves top with victory tomorrow, for a few hours at least with leaders Blackpool not kicking-off until 5.20pm at Leicester.
Three points against the Eagles will be no easy feat, however, with Dougie Freedman and his troops desperate for their first point of the season after a sluggish start.
It'll be the first time the side's have met since that relegation decider at Hillsborough in 2010, where Palace sent Wednesday down to League One.
Owls goalkeeper Chris Kirkland told the official SWFC website:
"We`re taking each game as it comes and the next one is Palace away which will be a difficult one. But if we carry on doing the things we have been doing, it will give us half a chance.
"Crystal Palace have had a tough start and they will be desperate for a win. Some will say this is a good time to play them, but is it? We have to make sure we prepare properly and go down there and play well."
There could be last-minute ins and outs and Palace with the transfer window running up until 11pm tonight, but one man who could go straight into the match day squad is Damien Delaney, who's signed a short-term contract with Palace on a free transfer.
Patrick McCarthy won't feature for the Eagles as he sits out six weeks with a groin injury.
But Glenn Murray should be fit to feature following a knee injury as should Jon Williams, who's suffered calf problems lately.
Zaha is being chased by a number of Premier League clubs before the close of the transfer window but should he remain at Palace and feature on Saturday, he'll be their biggest threat to the Owls goal.
Owls boss Dave Jones will make changes to the side that defeated Fulham in the Capital One Cup in midweek.
He could also be boosted by new arrivals before 11pm tonight, but a failure to register them in time to play tomorrow could see Wednesday 'as you were' from Saturday's win over Millwall at S6.
Rodri is expected to return to the starting eleven, and Chris O'Grady could also return to partner him after coming on as a substitute and changing last week's game.
Defender Anthony Gardner could be fit to face his former club but Jones could stick with Mark Beevers and Miguel Llera at the back.
Strong at the back and grabbing vital goals in attack, the Spaniard will once again be crucial for Wednesday at Selhurst Park.
Palace wins: 15
Wednesday wins: 21
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 2-2 Palace
The last time the side's met Palace relegated Wednesday on their own turf, so there could well be a sense of revenge this weekend, amongst the fans at least. Palace twice led through Alan Lee and Darren Ambrose. Leon Clarke and Darren Purse scored the Wednesday goals.
