Wednesday boss Dave Jones has prepared his side to face what he believes is the most unpredictable side in the Championship in Birmingham City on Tuesday.

With Wednesday out of action on Saturday, Birmingham suffered a 4-0 home defeat to in-form Watford but prior to that had only lost one in seven.

There is also the chance for Jones’ side to leapfrog City and continue moving upwards on Tuesday with three points.

He said: “We went to watch Birmingham on Saturday and I think they’re probably the most unpredictable team in the division.

“They got on a good run and then they go and lose quite heavily at home but we have to go there, focus on ourselves and get the result.

“They had a bad result on Saturday in front of their home crowd and they’ll want to put that right. There’s no easy game and if we get the chances, we’re certainly going to have to take them.”

Wednesday on the other hand enter this crucial clash in the Midlands in resilient fashion with one league defeat from ten.

During this current productive spell, the Owls have remained unbeaten in their last five away fixtures – collecting 13 points from 15 on offer - and Jones has urged his side to keep it going.

“We have to maintain the philosophy that if you work hard, you reap the rewards.

“We’re playing really well, working hard on the training ground and putting that into practise on the main pitch so long may that continue.

“Training this morning was again really, really good and they have to take that from here over to St. Andrews on Tuesday.

“We’ve got one or two players with little knocks and we’ll have to see if they get over it by tomorrow but the treatment room has got less and less players in there which is a good sign.”
