Match Preview

Buxton set for Owls return Sheffield Wednesday defender Lewis Buxton is back in contention for the home clash with Peterborough. Buxton has been sidelined for the last seven matches due to a torn hamstring, but could challenge for a place in the starting line-up as the Owls look to bounce back from Saturday's home defeat to Notts County. But striker Gary Madine remains sidelined after missing out over the weekend with a bruised knee and calf trouble. Gary Megson's side struggled to create chances against Notts County, so the Owls boss could opt for changes with winger Jermaine Johnson, striker Paul Heffernan and midfielders Darren Potter and Giles Coke all pressing for recalls. Megson has no new injury or suspension problems as his side chase their first home league win in six matches. Rampant Peterborough are set to be unchanged. Posh missed two penalties against Carlisle at the weekend but still cruised to a 6-0 win and manager Darren Ferguson is likely to name the same side at Hillsborough. But Ferguson may have to appoint a new penalty taker after captain Grant McCann and George Boyd missed from the spot at the weekend. Midfielder Lee Frecklington has had a hernia operation and will be sidelined for at least a month while new signing Paul Taylor will not feature as he is not match fit. Striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.

Match Report

Posh hit Owls for four In-form Peterborough are now just one point behind the automatic promotion places in League One after thumping Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 at Hillsborough. Goals by Norwich target Craig Mackail-Smith and Lee Tomlin set Posh on their way to a fourth straight success, while George Boyd helped himself to a brace to inflict more misery on struggling Wednesday. Darren Ferguson's team are playing with real confidence at the moment and look a good bet for promotion after scoring 19 goals in those four games and only conceding one in the process, leaving them just adrift of second-placed Huddersfield with a game in hand. By contrast, Wednesday's dreams of an immediate return to the Championship have long since disappeared thanks largely to a dismal run at home which has seen them fail to win there since early December. The Owls actually started the game fairly brightly and the loss of defender Mark Beevers to a head injury certainly did not help their cause. However, from the moment Mackail-Smith raced through to score Peterborough's opener in the 25th minute, the writing looked on the wall. Tomlin doubled their advantage 10 minutes later with a delightful chip over Owls keeper Nicky Weaver before Boyd slammed in their third just before half-time. Substitute Paul Heffernan briefly gave Wednesday hope with a reply soon after the restart, but those thoughts were killed off when Weaver spilled a soft shot from Boyd into his own net to seal a good night for Posh.
