Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham clash at Hillsborough this afternoon with the hosts looking for a late playoff push and the visitors desperate to pull further clear of the relegation zone.

Wednesday are currently 11th in the Championship table, 13 points below the playoff places but with plenty of football still to be played.

As for Fulham, they are eight points clear of Wigan Athletic, who currently occupy the final relegation place, but the Cottagers will know that a few more points are needed before they can rest easy.

Wednesday’s record of three wins in their last four matches means they will be quietly confident of extending that run this afternoon.

Fulham on the other hand have won just once in their last 11 games and it will take an almighty effort to put that right against today’s opponents.
