Prior to the international break, Wednesday moved off the foot of the Championship table with the 0-0 draw against Millwall.

A win this weekend could see the Owls move out of the bottom three for the first time this season.

Preston, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four outings in the Championship, though have not tasted defeat on home soil against Wednesday since December 2011.
