Earlier this season the Owls defeated their South Yorkshire rivals 2-0 at Hillsborough courtesy of goals from debutante Jacob Murphy and Steven Fletcher.

The Reds currently occupy bottom spot in the Championship and parted company with manager Daniel Stendel in October.

He was replaced by Wolfsberger AC boss Gerhard Struber.
