Despite finally faltering at the weekend, when their eight-match unbeaten run was brought to a halt at Adams Park, Sheffield Wednesday are still very much in contention for a top-six finish, which would earn them a shot at the playoffs.
Seeking promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt, the Owls have everything to play for even after they were leapfrogged in the League One standings by Wycombe.
Jordan Obita‘s second-half winner for the Chairboys saw them steal sixth spot, one point ahead of Darren Moore‘s men, but Wednesday can now go back above them by beating struggling Fleetwood.
Since a 1-0 win over the Cod Army back in August, it has been a rocky road for the South Yorkshire side to navigate in English football’s third tier, but winning 10 of their last 12 home games has kept them in the hunt for promotion.
By contrast, they only hold the division’s ninth-best record on the road, so will take nothing for granted when they cross the Pennines on Tuesday.
After making four changes to freshen up his team for their third game in a week, Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has stated that the quartet that did not feature against Wycombe will come back into contention for Tuesday’s game.
Therefore, George Byers and Liam Palmer are set to be drafted back into the starting lineup, while Jack Hunt and Callum Paterson could also return.
Defender Dominic Iorfa may not be back before the end of the season after suffering another injury in training, but Sam Hutchinson recently returned to the fold and should start in the visitors’ back three.
Harlee Dean has overcome a calf injury and is also available, but Josh Windass – who sustained a hamstring injury last month – is unlikely to be involved just yet.
Fleetwood, meanwhile, are again set to be without Harrison Holgate and Jordan Rossiter due to injury, and after Paddy Lane was stretchered off having also been red-carded at Gillingham last week, the Northern Ireland international is not expected to feature.

While Joe Garner will be hoping his heroics from the bench can now earn him a spot in the first XI, Ellis Harrison has notched three goals in his last six games and should spearhead the Cod Army’s attack once again.

Cairns; Macadam, Nsiala, Jules, Andrew; Batty, Camps, Pilkington; Hayes, Harrison, Harrop
Sheffield Wednesday possible starting lineup:
Peacock-Farrell; Hutchinson, Storey, Palmer; Hunt, Dele-Bashiru, Bannan, Byers, Mendez-Laing; Berahino, Gregory
