Sheffield Wednesday visit Burnley's Turf Moor ground tomorrow night. Here, Sports Mole previews the encounter.

Sheffield Wednesday will come up against one of the most in-form strikers in English football when they travel to Burnley tomorrow night.

Charlie Austin is the Championship's leading goalscorer with seven goals to his name. The former Swindon Town frontman has also found the net 16 times from his last 20 outings.

One selection problem that manager Eddie Howe will have for the visit of Wednesday is whom to partner with Austin. Both Sam Vokes and Martin Paterson are believed to be under consideration for the role.

Dave Jones's Wednesday have struggled for form of late following a positive start to life back in the Championship.

The Owls have lost their last six matches - five in the league and one in the Capital One Cup.

Leading goalscorer Reda Johnson will reportedly be reinstated in the starting lineup at Turf Moor.
