Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship meeting between Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County.

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking for their seventh win in 10 Championship games when they host Derby County at Hillsborough on Saturday.

Dave Jones's Owls moved four points clear of the drop zone with their 3-1 win over Brighton last week.

Derby are six points adrift of the playoff places despite beating Huddersfield Town 3-0 in their last outing.

Wednesday still have Reda Johnson missing with a sore ankle so Jones could start the same XI which beat Brighton.

Derby manager Nigel Clough could name an unchanged lineup as his side seek to close the gap on the top six.

Recent form

Sheffield Wednesday: WWDWL

Possible starting lineups

Sheffield Wednesday: Kirkland; Buxton, Gardner, Llera; Antonio, Helan, Pugh, Lee, Prutton, Coke; Lita

Derby County: Legzdins; Brayford, Roberts, Keogh, O'Brien; Bryson, Coutts, Hendrick, Hughes; Ward, Sammon
