But while it is business as usual at present, that is something that is obviously subject to change considering the varying factors that could come into play at any stage.

The weather is expected to stay around the 1 °C mark during the game, and some weather reports do suggest that there could be some snow showers around 2pm – not long before the scheduled kick off time.

Wycombe’s last visit to Hillsborough was played in terrible conditions as a minor blizzard came to Hillsborough for the latter stages, and there doesn’t seem to be any alarm bells as of yet that would suggest that today’s game will be called off.

Wednesday will maintain their place in the League One Play-Off positions if they pick up a win over today’s opponents – who are joint top of the table – and will be desperate to extend their unbeaten league run to 10 games.

Sheffield Wednesday's game against Wycombe Wanderers is still classed as business as usual despite the snow.
