'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sheffied Wednesday vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Hillsborough

Wolves Owling At The Door

Wolves travel to Hillsborough for their third game in 6 days looking to put Tuesday nights defeat to Coventry behind them and get back to winning ways.

Vital Quotes:

'We had to get beaten at some stage. We weren't going to carry on until the end of the season winning and we just move on to Saturday. I certainly don't think it is a case of having to lift the players because they have been flying.'

Sheffied Wednesday Team News:

Wednesday go into the match with their tails high having taken 11 points from the last 15.

However, having only taken two from the 7 games before that, there are still questions hanging over Brian Laws men, currently in 12th place in the league.

With no fresh injury worries Law's could field an unchanged side to the one that beat Colchester midweek and has been the core of their current 5 match unbeaten run, although Steve Watson could be recalled after recovering from a calf strain with Kenny Lunt making way.

Player to watch: Chris Brunt

One of the most highly rated players outside of the Premiership, Brunt has 11 goals this season already, and has been linked witha whole host of top flight clubs.

A deadball speciallist, and long range expert, this may turn out to be a personal duel between Brunt and Wolves 'keeper Matt Murray.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News:

Mick McCarthy will have to do
without the services of Scotland international following his harsh red card on Tuesday night.

Karl Henry looks set to miss out again with a bruised spleen, which should see a return for Jamie Clapham and captain Jody Jodie Craddock.

There are still doubts over Matt Murray still recovering from his which could see Wayne Hennessey recalled from Stockport as cover, whilst Mark Davies is pushing for a starting place.

Player to watch: Michael Kightly

Week in, week out, it's the same name that crops up, and rarely does he fail to deliver.

Match Facts & Stats

Wolves hold the upper hand in league meetings between the two sides having won 36 to Wednesdays 28, with 25 draws.

Over the last ten years, the fixture is most likely to throw out a draw,10 in total, with 4 wins for Wolves and one for Wednesday.

Ref Watch:

Jon Moss. Not to be confused with the Culture Club drummer, Mr Moss won't have to do too much to improve on Andy D'urso's or Paul Waltons performances.

Next Fixtures:

Next up its Southampton at home.
