Tonight sees Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City face off at the latter’s Brittania Stadium.
It is a game where the Owls will be hoping for all three points to drag them out of the bottom three.
For home side Stoke, the three points will keep them in touch with the play-off picture.

For Stoke City, it’s been a somewhat inconsistent season so far. Capable of winning games, they’ve also proven they are equally adept at dropping points too.
The Potters currently sit 10th in the Sky Bet Championship table on 39 points. This places them 7 points and goal difference outside the top six.
The same inconsistency that has blighted Stoke City has also done for Sheffield Wednesday – although the Owls had to contend starting the season on minus points.
Reduced from -12 to -6, those missing points would be good enough to see the South Yorkshire side in 16th place. However, they rest in 22nd and need to tighten up their act to escape the bottom three.
