Wednesday will be out to book their place in the FA Cup Fifth Round when they visit League Two Rochdale on Saturday.
The Owls have been handed a favourable tie in the prestigious competition but will know the Lancastrians are more than capable of causing a cup shock after knocking Leeds United out at the last stage.
Stuart Gray says he's close to becoming the permanent successor to Dave Jones thanks to a run of seven matches without defeat, and he'll look to celebrate by making that eight and getting Wednesday's name in the hat for the next round.
Rochdale have enjoyed two wins a draw since their cup triumph and will go into the game in confident mood sitting second in League Two and on course for promotion.
Their midweek draw at Chesterfield did see defender Olly Lancashire limp off the pitch, however, and he is a doubt for the match. Rhys Bennett came on to replace him and he'd be his likely replacement at the back this weekend.
Jason Kennedy has returned to Spotland from Bradford City but will not be allowed to feature having played for the Bantams in the competition already this season.
The striker has enhanced his reputation with 'Dale this season having scored 12 goals to help them up the League Two table, and he'll be out to make the national headlines this weekend.
Wednesday will be without striker Connor Wickham, who is not eligible to play as part of his loan arrangement from Premier League side Sunderland.
But Caolan Lavery can play, despite missing out on the last round, and that could mean Atdhe Nuhiu is recalled to the first team to add more options to Wednesday's attack.
Other than that, Wednesday could opt for the same side that drew 1-1 at Burnley last time out.
Maguire has enjoyed life back in the first team at Hillsborough and will be out to build on his goal at Turf Moor last weekend by netting again in Lancashire to fire the Owls into the next round of the cup.
