Tuesday, October 2
Wednesday will be out to avoid a seventh straight defeat and get their Championship form heading back in the right direction at Burnley tonight.
The slender 1-0 loss at Wolves was the Owls' sixth on the spin and Dave Jones and his men will be desperate to stop the rot at Turf Moor tonight.
The Lancashire club haven't exactly raced out of the traps themselves this season but are unbeaten on home soil in all competitions so far this campaign.
Owls defender Joe Mattock told the Sheffield Star:
'It's still early in the season, and we've got the ability. I don't see why we can't get a couple of wins and see what happens from there.
'We're just sticking together. We're all in it together, even the lads who aren't playing; as long as we stay like that, I don't think we'll have any problem pulling out of where we are.
'Burnley is a hostile place, where the crowd are a bit on top of you. It's going to be a tough game, but nothing '`m afraid of, and nothing for the lads to be afraid of either.'
Burnley will give a late fitness test to skipper Jason Shackell ahead of tonight's match.
The 29-year-old aggravated an injury in the warm-up to the Clarets' 2-2 home draw against Millwall on Saturday and was forced to withdraw from the starting line-up.
It's touch and go whether he'll be fit to return against the Owls but a return will give the Lancastrians a big boost.
Burnley have no other injury concerns going into the contest.
Possibly not a 'key man' as such, but Wednesdayites will know all about Clarets goalkeeper Lee Grant from his stint as Owls stopper.
Wednesday boss Dave Jones may have to continue fielding a makeshift defence due to a number of injuries at the back.
Reda Johnson, Kieran Lee, Lewis Buxton and Mark Beevers are all struggling with injuries, meaning Jermaine Johnson may have to start at right-back again.
Rhys McCabe and Chris Lines will also miss out through injury.
Jones could tinker with his attacking options, however, after his side drew a blank at Molineux. Rodri and Gary Madine will both be pushing for starts.
Yet to show the class he's produced at Everton, Owls fans will be keen for a spark that will hopefully see the young midfielder become a big hit at Hillsborough.
