Sheffield Wednesday v Crewe Alexandra
Tuesday 19 April
Sky Bet League One
There is plenty riding on tonight’s clash at Hillsborough for the Owls.
With a lot of work still to be done at the business end of the season, Wednesday’s play-off destiny is in our hands following a superb 3-2 win over MK Dons on Saturday night.
Although results on Easter Monday saw us fall out of the top six, Darren Moore’s men are well placed in League One with four games to play.
With games in hand over play-off rivals, a victory this evening would see us move fourth in the table, while a draw would also see us climb back into the top six.
Full focus, though, is required against a dangerous opposition in Crewe this evening.
Although the Railwaymen have endured a tough campaign and already had their relegation to League Two confirmed, the Owls are braced for a tough test tonight in S6.
Crewe parted company with manager David Artell earlier this month and posted their first win in nine games on Good Friday – a 3-1 home victory over Wimbledon.
Wednesday: Harlee Dean (calf) was substituted just before the interval on Saturday night after going down with injury and will be assessed.
Sam Hutchinson and Dominic Iorfa are not expected to be available this evening after suffering with minor muscle strains.
Massimo Luongo missed out against the Dons through illness and could be back involved for the Owls, while Lewis Gibson and Dennis Adeniran are also closing in on their return to first team action.
Josh Windass is making excellent progress and the gaffer expects the forward to play a part before the season concludes.
Crewe: Striker Scott Kashket is an injury doubt and had to be withdrawn in the 40th minute of Friday's win over Wimbledon.
Mikael Mandron is expected to lead the line after netting his 10th goal of the season last time out.
