Sheffield Wednesday LIVE: Wycombe Wanderers for double boost | A Kevin Pressman thunderbolt
It’s fair to say Sheffield Wednesday were brought down to earth with a bump at Millwall on Saturday.
The Owls travelled to south London in buoyant mood after an upturn in form which had seen them win four out of five games as they continue their battle to avoid the drop to League One.
But their bid to climb out of the relegation zone was a dealt a blow with a worrying second half collapse after taking an early lead through Callum Paterson against the Lions at The Den.
We’ll have more reaction to that and the latest in the search for a new manager as attention now switches to tomorrow’s crucial game against fellow relegation-threatened Wycombe Wanderers at Hillsborough.
So, make sure you stay with us throughout the day for all the latest news coming out of the Wednesday camp ahead of another vital 90 minutes for Neil Thompson’s men.

It’s now been more than a month since Sheffield Wednesday parted ways with Tony Pulis, and the wait for an appointment has led to another new name being thrown into the mix.
Gavin Ward is the man in the middle for Wednesday against Wycombe, and he’ll be officiating over an Owls game for the ninth time…
It’s a pretty mixed bag over the years, with SWFC winning four of the eight and losing three - including the last two (in 2019/20 against Luton and Millwall).
He’s shown seven yellows (although three were in the 2015 3-1 defeat to Charlton) and no reds.
Double boost for the visitors?
Wycombe Wanderers duo, Joe Jacobson and Dominic Gape, returned to training for the Chairboys last week, and while neither featured in their 3-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest over the weekend, they could return at Hillsborough tomorrow night.
Jacobsen got the assist when Wycombe beat Wednesday last year, and has directly contributed to more goals this season (6) than any other of their players.
