Match Preview

Bywater back for Owls Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Stephen Bywater will return to contention for the home game with Tranmere after joining the club on a free transfer. Bywater recently completed a three-month loan deal from Derby and missed Saturday's win at Preston, but is expected to return to the starting line-up against Tranmere in place of Nicky Weaver. Manager Gary Megson is hoping skipper Rob Jones can prove his fitness after missing out on New Year's Eve due to a back problem. Miguel Llera, on loan from Blackpool, will continue at the heart of defence if Jones fails to make it. Jon Otsemobor made his first league start of the season at Preston and is hoping to retain his place at full-back. Megson has no new injury or suspension problems as his side look to keep pace with city rivals Sheffield United in the race for automatic promotion. Tranmere boss Les Parry does not expect any of his injury absentees to return. Midfielder John Welsh will miss out with a knee problem, while striker Enoch Showunmi (leg), defender Ian Goodison (hamstring) and goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams (hand) remain sidelined. Showunmi received a boost this week when x-rays revealed he had not suffered a broken leg as was first feared, but Parry confirmed he still has work to do to return to fitness. "There's no break with Enoch, but he's still got a lot of swelling there," the Rovers manager told Tranmere player. "He was trying to kick a ball on Friday and every time he did was hobbling." Defenders Zoumana Bakayogo and David Raven returned from lay-offs to take places on the bench for the 2-0 win over Bury, but Parry admitted the pair are a way off match fitness. He added: "We put Raven on the bench because he was the fittest of our defenders, though he wasn't fit and we were praying that we didn't have to use him, and exactly the same with Zoom."

Match Report

Owls remain invincible at Hillsborough Sheffield Wednesday maintained their unbeaten home record with a 2-1 win at home to Tranmere. Early goals from Reda Johnson and Chris Lines put Wednesday in control, and although substitute Ian Goodison pulled a goal back for the visitors, it was too little too late. Wednesday took the lead in the second minute when Lines crossed from left wing, after Ben Marshall's free-kick was blocked by the defensive wall, and Johnson found the net with a firm header. It was 2-0 five minutes later when Jon Otsemobor passed to the unmarked Lines, who beat Paul Rachubka with a low shot. Wednesday had a good chance to go further ahead when Clinton Morrison's shot was parried by Rachubka and Chris O'Grady shot wide from the rebound with the keeper off his line. After the restart, Marshall had a shot turned wide by Rachubka and then Wednesday keeper Nicky Weaver kept out a shot from Lucas Akins. Goodison headed in a cross from Danny Holmes to reduce the arrears with eight minutes remaining, but Tranmere were unable to force an equaliser.
