Wednesday will be looking to extend their unbeaten run and move further away from Championship relegation danger with victory over a Forest side pushing for promotion when the sides meet at Hillsborough on Saturday.
The Owls are on an impressive seven-match unbeaten league run, making them one of the form sides of the division, ahead of a tricky test against Forest in front of the Sky cameras.
Billy Davies has returned to the City Ground, part of a rollercoaster ride for Forest fans this season, and he'll hope he can guide them into the play-offs - with three points in South Yorkshire crucial.
Owls boss Dave Jones told the official SWFC website:
"We are on a good run and now we have to keep that run going.
"In our recent home games against Brighton and Crystal Palace, we have shown how far we have come as a team and won both games - when we lost to the same teams earlier in the season.
"We have grown as a team and as a club and that is showing in the way we are playing.'
Forest boss Billy Davies told the official Forest site:
"They`re a tough Championship side, their recent form shows how difficult this one will be.
"They have got a very experienced manager and we will give them all due respect, but we are looking forward to this next challenge. It should be another excellent game."
Owls boss Dave Jones could stick with the same starting eleven that saw off Crystal Palace at Hillsborough last weekend.
Defender Reda Johnson is the only doubt but Danny Pugh could continue at left-back in his absence.
Loan duo Leroy Lita and Connor Wickham will look to continue forming a lethal partnership in attack, with Lita in top form in front of goal. Sunderland loanee Wickham will be keen to join his strike partner in the scoring charts.
The 28-year-old has been in top form in front of goal since his arrival on-loan at Hillsborough from Swansea City, scoring three goals in four starts. A goal in front of the Sky cameras would be a nice touch.
Forest will be without former Sheffield United loanee Greg Halford, who will sit out the first of a two-game ban for picking up his tenth booking of the season at Charlton last time out.
Davies's men have won their last two matches, emphatically seeing off Huddersfield 6-1 and will arrived in S6 in confident mood, meaning Halford's absence could be the only change for the visitors.
Sharp may not be a starter on Saturday - he started the last match on the bench - but rest assured he'll be desperate to get on the Hillsborough turf and score for Forest as a boyhood Sheffield United fan.
Wednesday wins: 55
Forest wins: 50
Last Time Out:
Forest 1-0 Wednesday
The City Ground, 17/11/12
Owls fans will remember it as Jose Semedo day, but a Miguel Llera own goal condemned the Owls to a slender defeat when the sides met earlier this season.
