Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday.

Barnsley host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday hoping that three points will see them move out of the Championship relegation zone.

The Tykes haven't enjoyed the best of starts to the season, but they will be impressed with the form of striker Chris O'Grady, who has netted seven times this season.

Manager David Flitcroft could be without winger Paddy McCourt, with Jim O'Brien in line for a start should the former Celtic man not recover from a knock.

Sheffield Wednesday have yet to win in the Championship this season, although they have only lost on four occasions.

Manager Dave Jones will be without the suspended Jose Semedo, with Jermaine Johnson possibly in line for a recall.
