Tuesday, January 29
Wednesday will be looking to climb away from the Championship's bottom three on Tuesday night when Brian Laws takes his troops to Wolves.
The Owls have enjoyed improved form of late, and will be the fresher of the two teams after sitting out of action at the weekend after being dumped out of the FA Cup.
But although Mick McCarthy's men were put through their paces at the weekend, they'll be coming in to the match on the back of a superb victory away at Watford, and looking to get their promotion hopes firmly back on track.
Wolves' biggest blow will be the loss of star winger Michael Knightly, who suffered a recurrance of his ankle injury and is almost certain to miss the clash.
But new signings Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and David Edwards are both likely to return to Mick McCarthy's starting eleven after missing out the weekend win at Watford due to being cup tied.
Andy Keogh will feature for Wolves against his former manager in Brian Laws, and will no doubt be keen to bag another goal.
The former Scunthorpe man is a constant threat for Wolves, but he'll have an added incentive as he looks to get another one over his former boss in Laws. Keogh grabbed a late, late leveller when they met at Hillsborough last season.
Wednesday will be without midfielder Steve Watson who picked up a hamstring injury in the FA Cup 3rd Round replay with Derby County last week.
Ronnie Wallwork is likely to continue in the centre of the midfield alongside Glenn Whelan, while Etienne Esajas and Burton O'Brien could also return to the Owls' midfield following injury setbacks.
Laws has a doubt over striker Leon Clarke, but with Akpo Sodje and Marcus Tudgay likely to get the nod in attack, Deon Burton could well step up if required.
Frank Simek, Francis Jeffers and Richard Wood are all still unavailable through injury.
The Owls' top scorer has been in top form since signing from Port Vale, but there could well be a doubt over his fitness on Tuesday night. Sodje has managed at least an hour in his recent encounters and that hour could prove vital for the Owls.
Wolves wins: 39
Wednesday wins: 35
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 1-3 Wolves
Wednesday sunk to their second defeat on the spin as they kick started the new season at S6 in losing style against Wolves. Freddie Eastwood and Michael Kightly both bagged goals to Wolves in the lead before Wade Small hit back. But Jay Bothroyd sealed the win in the last minute.
Wolves: Hennessey, Darren Ward, Collins, Henry (Kightly 90), Foley, Rob Edwards, Potter, Jarvis (Gray 84), Elliott, Bothroyd (Gibson 90), Keogh. Subs Not Used: Stack, Breen.
Wednesday: Grant, Bullen, Hinds, Beevers, Spurr, Whelan, Watson (Lunt 51), Johnson, Small (Burton 81), Sodje (Clarke 71), Tudgay. Subs Not Used: Gilbert, Wood.
