Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's meeting between FA Cup semi-finalists Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

The Championship's bottom half is mightily close and both Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday will be after three points to ease their relegation worries when they meet on Tuesday at The Den.

Three places separate the two clubs going into the match, with Millwall two ahead of 18th-placed Wednesday, who themselves are just three above the drop zone.

The game is one of two that Millwall have in hand on the majority around them because of their FA Cup run, and manager Kenny Jackett's eye will surely be on the Wembley semi-final against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

This will boost Dave Jones and Wednesday, who go into the encounter on the back of a 3-2 win over fellow strugglers Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Two players lie on the suspension tightrope and a booking for either Wednesday centre-back Miguel Llera or Lions midfielder James Henry will see them sit out the next outing.

The two clubs last met on the second weekend of the season and that day it was Wednesday who edged a five-goal thriller 3-2 at Hillsborough.
