Three games left, nine points to play for. Wednesday host Charlton Athletic in their penultimate home match of the Championship season and they'll be looking for a bit of revenge following their FA Cup defeat earlier in the campaign.
The Owls would have faced rivals Sheffield United in the quarter-finals of the competition, and been faced with a chance of running out at Wembley, but the Addicks spoilt the party with a convincing win at Hillsborough.
Wednesday now have little but pride, both in their league finish and Yorkshire bragging rights with Leeds United trailing only on goal difference, but Charlton arrive in S6 desperate for points to aid their battle against relegation.
Wednesday will go into the game in high spirits thanks to a 4-2 victory at Bournemouth on Friday with only ten men.
Sam Hutchinson, who also got on the scoresheet, saw red for a second bookable offence and will sit out the visit of the Addicks through the first of his two-match suspension.
Lewis Buxton will be touch and go after leaving the pitch at Bournemouth early in the second half through injury, and Liam Palmer, who replaced him on Friday, is his likely replacement should he miss out.
Players including Leon Best and Giles Coke will be looking for a call-up to the starting eleven should boss Stuart Gray tinker with his starting eleven in light of two matches in four days.
Antonio will be keen to finish what has been a frustrating season, mainly due to injury, in good form and will also be keen to add his name to the team sheet in the Owls' penultimate home fixture of the season.
Charlton arrive in South Yorkshire with a big relegation battle on their hands but they do have the added extra of having a game in-hand on their rivals.
The Addicks sit above the drop zone only on goal difference above Blackpool and will be desperate for points at Hillsborough and a repeat of their FA Cup success earlier in the season.
They were held to a goalless draw by Bolton Wanderers in their last outing but they will at least have on-loan striker Marvin Sordell back available after he was unavailable to feature against his parent club. Sordell is expected to go straight back into the starting eleven.
Full-back Chris Solly could also make a first-team return after being rested last time out.
Charlton need goals and Sordell, who was ineligible to play against parent club Bolton last time out, will be the man the Addicks look to.
v Bolton Wanderers (H, Sat 26/4)
