Wednesday v QPR
Saturday 16 December
It’s a vital clash in the Championship as the Owls go head-to-head with fellow drop zone occupants QPR.
In similar style to Wednesday, the R’s have been revitalised by a new manager, taking 12 points from a possible 21 since the arrival of Marti Cifuentes.
The Spaniard has overseen a real upturn in fortunes and QPR visit Hillsborough on the back of three wins (Stoke, Preston, Hull) and a draw (Plymouth) from their last four outings.
The Owls, of course, have also been rejuvenated under Danny Röhl, who is seeking a return to winning ways after the midweek reverse at Norwich.
Wednesday: Röhl is expected to select from a similar squad to that of the Canaries clash. Wednesday have no fresh injury concerns but the game is likely to come too soon for Josh Windass and Michael Smith.
QPR: Ziyad Larkeche was forced from Wednesday night’s goalless draw with Plymouth and boss Cifuentes is working with his medical team to determine the French defender’s availability in S6.
Midfielder Jack Colback is closing in on a return to action after coming off at Preston a fortnight ago with a muscle strain.
