Though Sheffield Wednesday are attempting to return to the Championship at the first time of asking next spring, their status as one of the biggest fish in the third-tier pond has made them vulnerable to plucky underdogs, such as Morecambe and Oxford United, this term.
In fact, Darren Moore‘s men had won only once in their last five League One matches before a 2-1 victory over Mansfield in the EFL Trophy – when Florian Kamberi‘s stoppage-time strike helped secure the win – and last weekend’s subsequent success against Bolton Wanderers.
Despite playing second fiddle for much of the match at Hillsborough, former Stoke striker Lee Gregory scored the only goal of the game to give Wednesday a 1-0 victory – just their second in seven league games.
Up to a respectable ninth place as a result, they sit five points ahead of their opponents this Saturday, who have not yet hosted the South Yorkshire side since their spectacular implosion almost 20 years ago.
Under pressure to deliver the club back to where they believe they belong, former West Brom defender Moore has organised his team well defensively, as only Wigan have conceded fewer league goals than Wednesday so far. Therefore, they should prove a tough nut to crack for the home side, who are enduring a particularly sticky patch at the moment.
In stark contrast to Sheffield Wednesday, though, defending has been a concern for Robinson during the opening phase of the current campaign, with only two teams conceding more than his side so far, as they have leaked a worrying total of 19 league goals.

After pulling off a superb survival act to avoid relegation last season, the Wombles are once again relying on several players – such as Paul Kalambayi and Ayoub Assal – who progressed through the club’s academy under the current senior management team.
To prevent the same youngsters being required to fight a similar relegation battle this term, Wimbledon will surely have to shore up their brittle back four – particularly in testing games such as Saturday’s.
