After suffering a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Milton Keynes Dons, the Brewers responded with a victory last weekend when they travelled to Sincil Bank to face Lincoln City.
Despite falling behind courtesy of a John Marquis strike, Burton Albion returned home with all three points after Joe Powell and Sam Hughes turned the game on its head to give Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side a 2-1 victory.
Having lost just once in their previous six matches, the Brewers now have the opportunity to claim back-to-back wins this weekend.
In their last home outing, they failed to score for only the second time at home in the league this term after the MK Dons backline kept the Brewers at bay.
If the hosts are to pick up a positive result on Saturday, their backline needs to be on high alert from the first whistle as Hasselbaink’s men have conceded eight of their 15 home league goals this season inside the opening half-hour.
Sheffield Wednesday’s quest for a playoff place is picking up speed with the Owls winning their previous two league games.
Last weekend, Darren Moore’s troops welcomed Ipswich Town to Hillsborough, and it was the hosts who prevailed thanks to Marvin Johnson’s sixth-minute effort.

Unlike Saturday’s opponents, Sheffield Wednesday returned to action in midweek, with George Byers and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing netting to give their side a 2-0 home victory over Morecambe.
Following consecutive home fixtures, the Owls will now head on the road and after losing their last three away matches, the visitors may be slightly pessimistic of their chances at the weekend.
In those three away games, they conceded nine goals, while only scoring two of their own, but Moore will be hoping that recent home victories can translate into away day success
