Last time we met: Town 2-2 Sheff Wed 22/11/17
Atdhe Nuhiu headed a 95th-minute equaliser to salvage a draw for Wednesday at Portman Road back in November. After a quiet first-half, Joe Garner put Blues in front with a fine first-time finish three minutes after the restart. The visitors levelled, though, as Gary Hooper converted a spot-kick after Jordan Spence handled in the area. Martyn Waghorn restored Town’s advantage 20 minutes from time with a superb header, but in the dying stages the powerful Nuhiu rescued a point for the Owls.

Previous meetings at Hillsborough:
05.11.16 Sheff Wed 1-2 Town
16.04.16 Sheff Wed 1-1 Town
30.09.14 Sheff Wed 1-1 Town
05.10.13 Sheff Wed 1-1 Town
20.04.13 Sheff Wed 1-1 Town

One to watch: Sean Clare
The 21-year-old has certainly caught the eye of Wednesday fans since breaking into the first-team in January. The midfielder, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Gillingham, is reportedly attracting interest from Premier League clubs Everton and Tottenham and could prove a threat tonight.

Could be the difference: Mick McCarthy
The Town boss has never lost an away match at Hillsborough in his 26-year managerial career (P8 W3 D5 ).
