It is top against bottom on Saturday, in the form guide at least, as Wednesday welcome Wolves and new manager Dean Saunders to Hillsborough in the Championship.
The Owls have won four, drawn one and lost one of their last six matches, helping them out of the relegation zone, while Wanderers have lost four, drawn one and won of their last six.
Saunders has recently arrived at Molineux to try and stem the flow of the Wolves tide and he'll be out to secure his first league win as the club's manager in South Yorkshire.
Owls boss Dave Jones told the Sheffield Star:
"We`ve had them watched at Blackburn last Friday; we know they have their dangerous players. They probably think they shouldn`t be in the position they`re in.
"They`re a great club, as big as ours, tradition-wise. They`ve had a taste of Premier League football and want more of it.
"I had four good years there - good times, nice people. There are a lot people still there from when I worked there. I`ve nothing bad to say about Wolverhampton Wanderers, because I had good times there."
Wednesday boss Dave Jones is expected to ring the changes to the side that bowed out of the FA Cup with defeat at MK Dons in midweek.
Jones made seven changes for that third round replay clash in Milton Keynes and a similar number are expected to return to the Owls' starting line-up this weekend.
Goalkeeper Chris Kirkland will be one, while others such as Anthony Gardner, Michail Antonio and Reda Johnson are expected to bolster the Owls ranks as Jones as a fully fit squad to select from.
Jermaine Johnson is set to be passed fit despite leaving the pitch early in midweek with a back injury, while Jeremy Helan will be back and available for selection after being cup-tied and David Prutton returns from suspension.
Jones could stick with the same eleven that bagged a big win at high-flying Hull City last weekend, with Johnson and Antonio leading the line.
Giles Coke will be hoping to continue in the heart of the Owls' midfield following his performance at the KC Stadium, but Daniel Jones has moved on to Port Vale this week.
Jones caused a shock by including Giles Coke at Hull last weekend but he performed well and could be included in the starting eleven again this time out. Owls fans will look on with interest to see how he gets on after being left out in the cold.
New Wolves boss Dean Saunders grabbed a point in his first game in charge at Blackburn Rovers last Friday night.
The former Doncaster Rovers manager will have had over a week to assess his squad ahead of the trip to Hillsborough and could make changes to that side that featured at Ewood Park.
Saunders has no fresh injury concerns going into the match.
The former Reading man started in Saunders's first game in charge of Wolves last week and will be keen to impress his new boss with goals at Hillsborough.
Wednesday wins: 35
Wolves wins: 43
Last Time Out:
Wolves 1-0 Wednesday
A Bakary Sako goal just before half-time was enough to give Wolves all three points when the sides met earlier in the season.
v Charlton Athletic (A) - 26/1/13
Brighton (H) - 2/2/13
