Team news

 

Owls: Manager Dave Jones has a full squad available for the visit of Wolves this weekend.

 

David Prutton is back available after his two-match suspension while Rodri could come into contention having recovered from a leg injury.

 

Jermaine Johnson (back) is expected to be fit in time for Saturday after picking up a minor knock in the midweek FA Cup-tie against MK Dons.

 

Wolves: The Molineux side will arrive at Hillsborough without a win in their last five games.

 

New boss Dean Saunders, though, will be hoping to build on the point gained against Blackburn in his first game in charge last Friday.

 

Jamie O'Hara made his return to the Wolves side last time out and could be in line to feature at Hillsborough.

 

Striker Jake Cassidy made his debut for Wolves against Blackburn and may play a part on Saturday having been amongst the goals this season during his loan spell at Tranmere.

 

Saunders may make changes for the trip to Hillsborough as he looks to turn fortunes around at the club.

View from the dugout

 

Dave Jones said: "We need to bring our form away from home to Hillsborough. With most clubs, that happens the other way round but we've had some fantastic results and performances on the road and we need to mirror those here.

 

"We have a long way to go and a lot of hard work to do."

 

Dean Saunders said: "You can lose every away game in the Championship if you’re not right mentally and you’re not determined and you don’t want to stop the ball going in your net.

 

"That’s because the pressure will be on you in every single away game, from every club from the bottom up.

 

"There’s not a lot of difference between all the teams so you’ve got to be able to resist and you need people on the pitch who enjoy defending and enjoy doing the things that a lot of people don’t like to do otherwise you’re too easy to play against.”
