The game between Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City in the Championship on Tuesday 12th September 2006 at 19:45 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Stoke City face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Potters will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 24 and win only 10 of the 43 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides
Sheffield Wednesday's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Owls have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
Stoke City's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The games have constituted a decent return of 14 goals for the Potters, and 6 goals against.
Sheff. Wed. are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 6 from their 6 matches played. Stoke City see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 7 points from their 6 games played so far,
