Tuesday, 12th January 2021, 12:00 pm

The Owls’ recent upturn in form – which has seen them win four of their last five games, including the FA Cup victory at Exeter City on Saturday – began by defeating the Sky Blues 1-0 at Hillsborough on December 19.

It’s a run which has lifted Wednesday, under the guidance of caretaker manager Neil Thompson, out of the Sky Bet Championship’s bottom three.

As for the Sky Blues, they go into Saturday’s game in 16th place but lost last time out in the FA Cup to Norwich City.
