Will Wycombe win?

Wednesday were of course the opponents for Wycombe’s first ever Championship win, which came in October when David Wheeler’s solitary header was enough to separate the sides. Current Owls boss Neil Thompson claims Wednesday "absolutely dominated" that match, but failed to turn their 72% possession into meaningful chances, only able to match Wycombe's three shots on target.

The Chairboys have only tasted victory twice since then, but will carry belief into a meeting with the side directly above them who, despite recent improvements, are three points from safety – not helped by the six-point deduction they suffered as a result of off-field irregularities. They’ve won five of their last eight, after going nine without a win prior to that sequence.

How many will Wycombe score?
The Blues have scored in all but one of their away games since early November, when they drew a blank at Nottingham Forest; the only other goalless match in that time came against Bournemouth when home keeper Asmir Begovic was awarded the Man of the Match prize for a series of match-winning saves. Recent away games have yielded two goals each at Brentford and Preston, and one each at Bristol City, Barnsley and Derby. Sheffield Wednesday, however, have only conceded once at home in their last four outings.

Will Wycombe score in the first half?
The two goals at Brentford last weekend were the first netted in the opening 45 minutes away from home since the only other one of its kind – Scott Kashket’s leveller at Norwich. Between those strikes, Wanderers’ seven away goals were all netted after the interval.

Will Uche Ikpeazu score?
The in-form striker went close with a low drive and bicycle kick against Nottingham Forest, and also proved his intent with a long-range effort in the opening 15 seconds of Saturday’s match. Ikpeazu is growing in form, fitness and confidence and could be another handful for the Wednesday defence.

How many assists will Daryl Horgan make?
The Irish winger has played in multiple positions so far this season, on both wings and in a number 10 role, and looks a constant source of dangerous deliveries into the box, even though he has only assist to his name so far this season. If selected, Horgan will look to get at a defence that leaked four goals against Millwall at the weekend.

How many tackles will Ryan Tafazolli make?
The centre-back’s emergence in the side has, along with Uche Ikpeazu, felt like the addition of a new signing, having missed most of the first half of the season through injury. Tafazolli made three tackles against Forest and may be tasked with shackling Jordan Rhodes, who has been a prolific goalscorer against the Blues in recent times.
