Hovering just outside the top six, Wednesday have not enjoyed the standout season that they were expected to have since dropping down from the Championship last term.
A stop-start campaign has plagued their automatic promotion hopes, with the Sheffield side reliant on a top six finish should they wish to achieve an immediate return to the second tier.
Largely let down by their away form, Wednesday have struggled away from the comfort of their own home, picking up a lowly 21 points on the road, compared to 31 achieved at Hillsborough.
That said, even home advantage cost them last time out as they suffered a bruising 2-0 defeat to leaders Rotherham United.
For the second consecutive weekend, Wednesday face a Yorkshire rival with relegation candidate Doncaster the opponents for the Owls this weekend.

If their meeting from earlier in the campaign is anything to go by, the visitors should have no problem taking all three points, given their comfortable 2-0 triumph at Hillsborough
