Sheffield Wednesday take on fellow relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest in a huge clash at the bottom of the Championship table at the City Ground tonight.
Wednesday suffered their tenth league defeat of the campaign against South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley on Saturday, although a first victory under Tony Pulis could see the Owls end tonight just one point from safety.
However, Wednesday have taken just three points from Pulis’ seven games in charge since he replaced Garry Monk last month, although the Hillsborough outfit do have an outstanding recent record at the City Ground.
Quiz: Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Sheffield Wednesday appearances?
A first-half hat-trick from Jordan Rhodes was enough to seal a 4-0 victory almost exactly 12 months ago, which is one of five Wednesday wins in their previous six trips to Forest.
Ahead of this evening’s game, Wednesday’s official Twitter account sent out a tweet, and we’ve been looking at how the Hillsborough faithful have been reacting.
And despite their impressive recent results against Forest, it’s fair to say that the Wednesdayites aren’t confident of getting three points against Chris Hughton’s men this time around.

Beyond caring at this point, there’s no desire to win and when we are winning there’s no desire to keep a lead. Shocking
