Sheffield Wednesday vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 9th February 2021, k.o. 7pm GMT
Sky Bet Championship

Wycombe head north for the first time in exactly two months, looking to complete a league double over Sheffield Wednesday on their first visit to Hillsborough since a memorable meeting nine years ago.

The Owls collected a 2-0 win over the already-relegated Chairboys to secure promotion to the Championship, where they've never left - despite twice reaching the play-offs - but they may be in their greatest danger of departing through the trapdoor, sitting in 23rd and not helped by the six-point deduction inflicted on them earlier this season.

Gareth Ainsworth was in the Wycombe team that day in 2012 and leads his side back to the famous stadium, having been absent from Adams Park on the day David Wheeler headed home the only goal to secure that triumph over the Owls in October.

Nottingham Forest proved too strong at the weekend which might prompt Ainsworth to shuffle his pack for the first of two trips to Yorkshire in quick succession, ahead of the encounter with Huddersfield on Saturday.
