Sheffield Wednesday v Morecambe
Tuesday 1 February
Sky Bet League One
The Owls will be aiming to make it back-to-back wins this evening as Darren Moore’s men lock horns with Morecambe at Hillsborough.
Wednesday maintained their outstanding home form on Saturday by defeating Ipswich 1-0.
Wednesday have tasted defeat just once in S6 all season, the most impressive such run in the whole of the EFL.
Heading into the game, the Owls are six points off the play-off spots with a game in hand over sixth-placed Oxford, while tonight’s visitors Morecambe are one point from safety in 21st position.
The Shrimps, though, will carry a threat tonight with one of the league’s leading scorers among the ranks.
Striker Cole Stockton has netted 17 times from 26 appearances this season.
Wednesday: Lee Gregory (toe) was absent from the squad on Saturday.
Moore says the striker will be assessed this week and is therefore unlikely to play on Tuesday.
Dennis Adeniran has been ruled out for the season after undergoing an operation last week.
Dominic Iorfa continues to make good progress with the medical staff, though the gaffer has confirmed he remains weeks away from resuming full training.
Likewise Chey Dunkley, our December Player of the Month is working his way back to full fitness.
Saturday’s goalscorer Marvin Johnson was substituted in the 84th minute after picking up a knock against Ipswich and will also be monitored.
Morecambe: The Shrimps added to their squad on deadline day with the signing of winger Dylan Connolly from Northampton on an 18-month contract.
Defender Liam Gibson is a doubt and was withdrawn midway through the first half on Saturday after picking up an injury in Morecambe’s 2-2 draw with Accrington.
