Match Preview

Bennett back for Wednesday Sheffield Wednesday defender Julian Bennett is expected to be back in contention for the home clash with Hartlepool. Bennett missed the Owls' first home league defeat of the season last week, to Charlton, due to a nasty facial cut sustained in the FA Cup win over West Ham, but could return to the starting XI as manager Gary Megson ponders one or two changes. Winger Ben Marshall is unavailable as he has returned to parent club Stoke, so Jermaine Johnson may be recalled to the squad, while another wide player, latest signing Mike Jones, is hoping to retain his place in the line-up. Lewis Buxton (hamstring) could also provide Megson with further options in defence by returning to the squad following a 10-game injury lay-off. Megson must decide whether to retain Nicky Weaver in goal or recall Stephen Bywater as his side bid to keep pace with city rivals Sheffield United and Charlton in the automatic-promotion places. Hartlepool midfielder Andy Monkhouse is back in contention for a place in the starting line-up after illness. Monkhouse was restricted to the role of unused substitute in last week's goalless draw at Exeter. Manager Neale Cooper is also expecting striker Adam Boyd to return to the squad after illness prevented him from being included at all last week. But Cooper, who returned to Victoria Park for a second spell in charge last month, may have to wait a little longer to see another of his strikers, James Poole, in action. Poole has been sidelined with a hamstring problem since the Boxing Day win at Oldham and remains doubtful. Forward Colin Nish, sidelined since the end of October with a knee injury, has returned to full training, but is short of match fitness. Cooper has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side look to extend their unbeaten run to three matches.

Match Report

Owls held by Pools High-flying Sheffield Wednesday had to settle for a point at home to Hartlepool in a 2-2 draw. After Peter Hartley gave Hartlepool the lead, Jermaine Johnson and Gary Madine score to put Wednesday ahead before Antony Sweeney struck a late equaliser. In an even first half, Hartlepool keeper Scott Flinders kept out efforts from Rob Jones and Danny Baath while Madine steered the ball wide from close range. Hartley escaped with a yellow card towards the end of the half when he brought down Madine who was threatening to burst into the area. And it was Hartley who put the visitors in front two minutes after the re-start when he met Evan Horwood's corner with a firm header. A superb individual goal from Jermaine Johnson, who came on as a half-time substitute, levelled the scores in the 58th minute. Johnson ran at the Hartlepool defence before beating Flinders with a low, angled shot. Madine put Wednesday ahead with a first-time shot after an attempted clearance went straight to him, but Sweeney equalised in the 87th minute with a neat lob.
