Both sides occupy two of the bottom three spots in the Championship, with the Owls just a point behind Paul Warne’s men having played a game more than their South Yorkshire rivals.

However, more significantly, Wednesday enter the latest round of midweek games six points adrift of safety following their collapse at Luton Town on Saturday.

As for the Millers, they’re on a horrendous run currently and will arrive at Hillsborough having lost their last five league games to leave them deep in the relegation mire.
