Owls cast eye over Championship rivals

12 February 2010 04:56
Weekend off for Wednesday as others try to pick up points Sheffield Wednesday have a rare weekend without a game as their scheduled opponents for this Saturday, West Bromwich Albion look to continue their run in the F.A. Cup. The Owls face Doncaster Rovers at Hillsborough on Tuesday evening and the club are likely to take a keen interest in Rovers fixture at Nottingham Forest on Saturday as part of their preparations to face their South Yorkshire counterparts. With Wednesday not playing a few of the teams around them in the Championship table have the opportunity to make up ground in a bid to pull away from the relegation zone. Bottom of the table Peterborough United travel to Middlesbrough, next to bottom Plymouth Argyle visit South Yorkshire to take on Barnsley and Scunthorpe, just a point behind the Owls in the league table, visit Leicester City. In addition to this Coventry, who are three points above Wednesday entertain out of form QPR who are only above the Owls on goal difference. These fixtures will all be of interest to Wednesday followers but the Owls must first and foremost take care of their own matches and with two home games to come in the next week followed by a crucial trip to fellow strugglers Reading it is vital that they pick up points in these games as they move into the final third of the season.
