Changes, blood and guts in Sheffield Wednesday predicted XI for Stoke City showdown

All of a sudden, we’re down to the final four.

Sheffield Wednesday’s bid to stay in the Championship will be decided by their results - and those of the teams around them of course - between now and a May 4 trip to Sunderland that already looks like a nerve-buster.

First up and most pressing is a titanic clash with three-ahead Stoke City at Hillsborough on Saturday. The Potters are fresh off the back of a chastening 3-0 defeat at Swansea City in midweek and Wednesday will be desperate to pull them further into the mire by claiming a win to draw level with their points tally.

How will they set up? What tactics will they employ? Who will be chosen to take on the challenge?

Here’s the stab in the dark effort we’ve come up with as Wednesday prepare for Stoke tomorrow.
