Wycombe Wanderers vs Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday return to Adams Park almost nine years to the day since their last visit, hoping to avoid a Halloween horror show against an improving Wycombe who sit one place above them in the table.

The Owls started the season with a 12-point deduction and a promising opening few fixtures have been overshadowed by a poor run of form, culminating in a 3-0 loss to neighbours Rotherham in midweek.

Gareth Ainsworth's men, on the other hand, finally earned a reward for a succession of excellent performances, taking a point off Watford on Tuesday and now eyeing their first Championship victory this weekend.

Wycombe will hope that their extra day's rest will give them an edge, with Wednesday also suffering from a number of enforced absentees, particularly at the back.

Last Time Out

Here are the highlights from Wanderers' 1-1 draw with Watford:

Meanwhile, Wednesday went down 3-0 to Rotherham:

Team News
Blues have no fresh injury worries and could welcome Dominic Gape, Ryan Tafazolli and Jason McCarthy back into the fold.

Wednesday are without the injured Aden Flint, Chey Dunkley and Massimo Luongo, with Tom Lees suspended, but Dominic Iorfa and Izzy Brown could return from injury.

Wanderers will be in their light and dark blue quarters.

Man in the Middle
Keith Stroud has shown 13 yellow cards and one red in seven games so far this term, including Watford's 1-0 derby win over Luton, and his last involvement in a Wycombe fixture was the 2-1 win at Dagenham in February 2016.
