It's a relegation 'six-pointer', a real humdinger and a South Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough this weekend as Wednesday welcome Barnsley for a huge clash at S6.
Bragging rights are important but three points that would haul either side away from relegation danger are the main aim as the Owls and Tykes go head-to-head at what's set to be a packed Hillsborough.
Defeat for either side could leave them in the relegation zone, and sap morale going into the 'business end' of the season, while victory would provide the opposite.
May the best team win...
Wednesday are set to be boosted by three new loan additions for the South Yorkshire derby clash.
Boss Dave Jones was busy before Thursday's loan transfer deadline, with Seyi Olofinjana arriving from Hull City, while Stuart Holden penned a one-month deal from Bolton and Steve Howard came in until the end of the season from Hartlepool.
All three players are expected to take their places in the squad, but it's unknown who, if any, will make their full Owls debut.
Wednesday will be without Michail Antonio, who is out injured for the rest of the season through a groin injury.
Wednesday's defence has looked solid enough recently but the goals have been lacking. Leroy Lita started well following his loan move from Swansea City but has failed to find the net in his last four games and will be eager to end that unwanted run.
The Reds have not been as active in the loan window as Wednesday but they have brought in Dennis Knight, a former Newcastle United youngster, on a deal until the end of the season and he's set to go straight into the Tykes' squad.
Chris O'Grady has been playing well for the Oakwell club since his loan move there from Wednesday, but will not be allowed to feature against his parent club as part of the loan arrangements.
Jim McNulty and Scott Golbourne will both miss out through injury.
Dagnell has found a new lease of life since Keith Hill's departure from Oakwell and is the Reds' leading goalscorer with ten to his name this season.
Wednesday wins: 32
Barnsley wins: 21
Last Time Out:
Barnsley 0-1 Wednesday
Chris O'Grady, now on-loan at Barnsley, scored the Owls' winner when the sides met at Oakwell just before Christmas.
v Bristol City (A) - 1/4/13
