Wednesday could secure their Championship status in Saturday's clash at fellow strugglers Peterborough United this Saturday.
The Owls may well be already safe from the drop before kick-off if results elsewhere go their way from the regular 3pm matches, but if not a win against Posh would be enough to survive.
Victory against Darren Ferguson's men will be no easy feat, however, with United enjoying a similar upturn in fortunes to Wednesday in recent weeks.
Posh suffered a 3-1 defeat at Derby County last time out and will target nothing less than victory against the Owls in the proverbial 'six-pointer'.
Defender Gabriel Zakuani went off at half-time injured at Pride Park but Posh are hoping he will be fit for the visit of Dave Jones's men.
Peterborough have a mini injury crisis at the back with defenders Mark Little and Michael Bostwick also struggling to be fit for the clash.
Gale is Peterborough's top scorer this season so far with 13 goals and will be looking to add more to his tally against Wednesday.
Wednesday's biggest concern will be over the fitness of Jermaine Johnson, who's been the star man in recent weeks.
The Jamaican pulled up with a hamstring injury in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town and he will be assessed before the trip to London Road.
Full-back Reda Johnson is also an injury doubt with a foot problem. Danny Pugh could continue at left-back for the Owls in his absence.
Gary Madine has returned to training and also played for the Owls development squad last week so could be in contention for the match.
Steve Howard could start alongside Leroy Lita if neither Madine or Jermaine Johnson are passed fit to play.
With Jermaine Johnson an injury doubt, Wednesday will look to the on-loan Swansea City man for the goals that could secure their safety. He netted a crucial goal in last weekend's draw with Ipswich.
Posh wins: 5
Wednesday wins: 9
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 2-1 Posh
The Owls bagged all three points when the sides met earlier this season. Ross Barkley and Miguel Llera scored the goals.
v Middlesbrough (H) - 4/5/13
