Tommy Smith (hamstring) is back in training but the clash against the Owls will come too soon for the striker.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "We have to be positive and look forward. We have to go out there and earn confidence but I believe in the players and they can turn this around."

Malky Mackay said: "We are top of the division and top scorers  as well, which is important. We have been quite threadbare but I'm very proud of the group. We've been up in Yorkshire and Derbyshire and picked up four points out of six with a real patched-up group."
