Wednesday travel to Huish Park looking for a third straight league win that would edge them closer to Championship survival.
The Owls have won their last two matches and have enjoyed good fortunes on their travels, having gone nine unbeaten in a run stretching back to mid-December.
The Glovers are in some decent form of their own, however, thanks to an unbeaten run of four games and they'll be scrapping for every ball to make it a fifth and boost their own survival hopes.
Owls boss Stuart Gray told the official SWFC website:
"My team talk to the players is that this will be our hardest game so far because you have got a team who are fighting and scrapping for their lives.
"Any team who can go to Reading and lose three men and still get a draw out of it shows the commitment of the players.
"We go there in very high confidence but we have to impose our game on them from the off and match their work rate and commitment."
Yeovil will be in confident mood going into the game thanks to an unbeaten run stretching four matches that has aided their Championship survival efforts.
The Glovers will be down on numbers for the match though after seeing three men sent-off in an incredible match against Reading last time out - a match they managed to hold on for a point in.
Byron Webster was one of those given his marching orders last week but he will be eligible to feature this weekend after Yeovil won an appeal over the decision.
But Joe Ralls and Kieffer Moore will both be absent through suspension, leaving Glovers boss Gary Johnson needing to change his starting eleven for the visit of the Owls.
The former Doncaster Rovers man is Yeovil's top-scorer this season with ten goals and he'll be looking to improving those statistics against his former South Yorkshire foes.
Wednesday have had mixed news on the injury problems in defence this week.
Joe Mattock and Reda Johnson have both been ruled out of the trip to Huish Park. Mattock is set for at least three weeks on the sidelines and Johnson has suffered a set-back in his return, meaning he'll be in the treatment room for another ten days at least.
But Lewis Buxton has performed well in training and has come into Gray's thoughts for the trip. Oguchi Onyewu played for the USA in their midweek defeat against the Ukraine and Gray will assess the centre-back before the match.
Maguire was the Owls' Player of the Month for February and he'll be looking to get back on the goal trail and help Wednesday to a big three points this weekend.
Yeovil wins: 0
Wednesday wins: 4
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 1-1 Yeovil
Atdhe Nuhiu had given Wednesday the lead in the first-half and Byron Webster's sending-off just before half-time seemed to have the writing on the wall. But the Glovers battled on and were rewarded when Joe Ralls bagged a leveller just after the hour mark.
v Wigan (A) - 12/3/14
