Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship clash between Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn Rovers meet in the Championship on Saturday with both sides fighting for their lives near the bottom of the table.

The two teams will start the match at Hillsborough above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference.

Wednesday are in the better form with seven points from their last six games, while Rovers have recorded just one win in 10 outings.

Lewis Buxton returns for the hosts following a suspension as Seyi Olofinjana and Stuart Holden also put themselves in contention.

Grzegorz Sandomierski is expected to start in goal for the visitors with Paul Robinson and Jake Kean both sidelined.

Elsewhere, Josh King, Lee Williamson and Nuno Gomes are all back after missing Monday's 3-0 defeat at Cardiff City.
