Match Preview

Stephen is Wright for Hartlepool Hartlepool defender Stephen Wright is expected to return to contention for the home clash with Sheffield Wednesday. Wright, a permanent summer signing from Brentford, missed last Saturday's 2-1 win at Bournemouth after being kicked on the back of his knee in training the previous Thursday. Manager Mick Wadsworth opted for veteran Ritchie Humphreys to fill in at left-back, with Evan Horwood on the substitutes' bench. But Horwood made a late appearance after shaking off a groin injury and volleyed home a spectacular winner, so Wadsworth faces a selection dilemma as his side look to extend their unbeaten npower League One run to 10 matches. Wadsworth also has the option of adding fit-again strikers James Brown and Colin Larkin to his squad. Brown has yet to make a first-team start in the league this season due to injury (ankle) and illness. Sheffield Wednesday striker Ryan Lowe is unlikely to feature in the squad. Lowe, signed from Bury in the summer, lasted only 22 minutes of his debut at Charlton earlier this month before a late appearance off the substitutes' bench in last week's home win over Exeter. But Lowe is still struggling with bruising related to an ankle injury and may require a further spell on the sidelines. Fellow striker Chris O'Grady remains in a similar position as he has not fully shaken off the foot problem which has restricted him to three appearances since his arrival from Rochdale in August. Winger Jermaine Johnson sits out the final game of his three-match ban and midfielder David Prutton is still out due to a thigh strain. Manager Gay Megson has no other injury or suspension issues as his side chase only their second away win in the league this season.

Match Report

Owls swoop to halt Pools' run Sheffield Wednesday ended Hartlepool's unbeaten start to the season and leapfrogged Mick Wadsworth's side into fourth spot thanks to Reda Johnson's solitary header. The Owls won a frantic encounter with the only goal in the 33rd minute when a long throw-in was met by giant right-back Johnson and his header sailed across goal into the far corner of the net. Wednesday had two other openings before the break. Ben Marshall's free-kick was tipped over by Pools goalkeeper Scott Flinders and the Owls midfielder then saw his dangerous ball into the area flash across the face of goal. But Pools had their chances in a frantic second-half. Antony Sweeney headed wide from Nobby Solano's cross and the Peruvian headed a loose ball over from similar distance. Pools substitute Andy Monkhouse cracked a low 20-yard drive against the woodwork and a goalbound Evan Horwood header was diverted away by Owls defender Danny Batth. Wednesday almost got a second on the break in injury time, but Liam Palmer shot wide from a tight angle after skipping round Flinders.
