What was the result last time out?

The two side's played out a dogged 0-0 draw in the first leg of their play-off semi-final on Sunday.

The Star's Sheffield Wednesday reporter described the match as a "tedious, uneventful Yorkshire derby" but praised a Carvalhal "tactical masterclass".

The Owls made it difficult for their Yorkshire counterparts throughout the game, frustrating them during a cagey, nervy affair.

Wednesday failed to register a single shot on target during the match but Carvalhal would have been the happier of the two managers after the game.

Team news for Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield

Gary Hooper is likely to miss out again for Wednesday meaning Steven Fletcher could keep his place alongside Fernando Forestieri, Sam Winnall or Jordan Rhodes.

Carvalhal will also be hoping Sam Hutchinson will recover from a knee injury in time to make the clash.

Danny Ward will likely replace Joel Coleman in goal for Huddersfield after missing the first match through suspension.

Other than that, Huddersfield are expected to name a similar side to Sunday's clash.
