The Owls and the Rams will meet at Pride Park this Saturday lunchtime and, should Rotherham United fail to win either of their remaining two games, a win for Wednesday would see them leapfrog both sides to secure safety in the most dramatic fashion.

Speaking after last weekend's dramatic action came to a close, stand-in Wednesday manager Jamie Smith said: “It’s very frustrating – but fortunately today it didn’t lead to any goals and we didn’t concede.

“The mood is one of disappointment, we’re disappointed not to get the three points. It’s something we’ve built up through the week about getting all three points, so it’s obviously disappointing that we didn’t get them. We weren’t as clean in our decision-making as we wanted to be, or needed to be.”
