Darren Moore will be desperate to get back to winning ways when Sheffield Wednesday host Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
The Owls were inexplicably beaten 3-0 by Plymouth Argyle last time out, a crushing reality check after the international break. Wednesday have been impressive at Hillsborough this season, winning both of their league matches without conceding and will be hoping to continue that run against Steve Cotterill’s Shrews.
As for the visitors they have lost all three of the away games so far this season without scoring, the stars seem to be aligning for a comfortable home win, but it is never that simple in the Football League and the Owls will need to be right at it to break Shrewsbury down.
With Wednesday looking to break back into the play-off places, we have taken a look at two potential tactical tweaks Moore could implement to get the Owls back to winning ways…

The Queens Park Rangers loanee was very effective in League One for Oxford United last season and in his one versus one dribbling ability would add a point of difference to the attacking contingent. The 24-year-old was introduced at half time at Home Park in the place of right back Jack Hunt changing to a back three. Sylla Sow and Marvin Johnson started on the flanks in the defeat, Shodipo could capture the imagination of the home crowd if trusted with a place in the starting XI.
24 questions about Sheffield Wednesday’s best ever strikers – Can you get 100%?
Lee Gregory has been feeding off scraps in recent weeks and giving him a partner to play off of, particularly at Hillsborough, could help. Callum Paterson and Saido Berahino are excellent striker options to have from the bench in the third tier but may be better utilised from the off in this matchup.
Berahino has returned to England with a point to prove and is playing under someone he trusts in Darren Moore, it will be interesting to see what the 28-year-old can offer against lowly Shrewsbury.
