Match Preview

Owls waiting on Jones Sheffield Wednesday defender Rob Jones is hoping to shake off concussion in time for the home game with Colchester. Jones, signed on loan until the end of the season from Scunthorpe two weeks ago, banged his head while scoring for the Owls in their 3-1 midweek defeat to Brentford. Jones was forced off shortly after and taken to hospital but has not been ruled out this weekend and manager Gary Megson is prepared to give him until the last possible moment before making his decision. Should Jones fail to make it his replacement on Tuesday night, Jon Otsemobor, could continue, while Michael Morrison provides Megson with an alternative option. Megson, who has no other new injury or suspension worries, is also waiting on the availability of midfielder Giles Coke, who has missed the last two games due to tonsilitis. Winger Jermaine Johnson may have played his way back into the starting line-up after stepping off the bench in midweek. The Owls, four points above the relegation zone, are chasing their first win in six matches. Tommy Smith returns to the Colchester squad after missing the last two matches. The on-loan Ipswich defender has been on international duty with New Zealand. Smith may struggle to reclaim his place in the side, however, after the Us registered back-to-back wins in his absence, including a 5-1 hammering of Exeter, to maintain their faint play-off hopes. Fellow centre-halves Pat Baldwin and Magnus Okuonghae remain long-term absentees. Baldwin is still some way from a return to action due to an Achilles problem and Okuonghae is out for the season following ankle surgery. Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole should be involved again after playing 90 minutes for the reserves in midweek to build up his fitness after a cruciate injury.

Match Report

Megson breaks home hoodoo Gary Megson's long wait for his first home win as Sheffield Wednesday is over after a 2-1 success against Colchester. Striker Neil Mellor marked his recall to the team with both goals as Wednesday picked up their first three points at Hillsborough this year. Mellor broke the deadline after 25 minutes after Kem Izzet inadvertently played the ball through to the on-loan forward from Preston following an attempted block, and he punished him with a delicate lob over Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams. Colchester had opportunities and Richard O'Donnell had to react smartly to keep out shots from Ashley Vincent and David Mooney. However, Wednesday got the all-important goal second soon after the restart thanks to a stunning header by Mellor. Full-back Jon Otsemobor was the architect with a delightful cross from the right, but the striker still had plenty of work to do to twist and divert the ball into the back of Williams' net in front of the Kop end. Colchester did pull a goal back with time running out as O'Donnell could only parry Andy Bond's shot after a good run Steven Gillespie was on hand to tuck home the rebound.
