Sports Mole previews Wolverhampton Wanderers' visit to Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday can move within a point of 18th-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers when the two sides meet at Hillsborough in the Championship this weekend.

Dave Jones's men lifted themselves out of the relegation zone last weekend with an impressive 3-1 win at Hull City, but have since crashed out of the FA Cup with a defeat to MK Dons.

The visitors are still finding their feet under new manager Dean Saunders, drawing 1-1 with Blackburn Rovers at home in the Welshman's first match in charge.

Jones has a full-strength squad at his disposal, with David Prutton back from suspension and Rodri having recovered from a leg injury.

Saunders has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game but could choose to shuffle the pack as he continues to assess his squad.
