See below for all you need to know ahead of the game.

Date: Saturday, December 22. Venue: Hillsborough. Kick-off: 3pm
Rudd, Clarke, Huntington, Davies, Hughes, Pearson, Gallagher, Johnson, Browne, Barkhuizen, Nmecha.
Dawson, Baker, Lees, Pudil, Fox, Hector, Reach, Pelupessy, Matias, Fletcher, Nuhiu.
Alan Browne: Goal against Millwall was his seventh of a campaign that by his own admission started slowly. The Irishmans energy and industry is key to any successful away day and he will be tasked with getting in and amongst it
Adam Reach: Former PNE loan star Reach joined Wednesday for 5million back in 2016 and his first goal for the club duly came at Deepdale. Has a penchant for wonder goals and has become a reliable outlet for Wednesday
Jos Luhukay was named as Sheffield Wednesday boss in January but it is uncertain whether he will reach his first anniversary in charge. The Owls being towards the wrong end of the table has placed Luhukays job in doubt
Before coming to England, Luhukay had managed five clubs in Germany Stuttgart, Hertha Berlin, Augsburg, Borussia Monchengladbach and SC Paderborn. He was also assistant coach at Koln.
David Coote: Will be taking charge of his first PNE game of the campaign having plied his trade in the Premier League and EFL this season. Was the man in the middle for two North End games in 2017-18
PNE: 13/10. Sheffield Wednesday: 21/10. Draw: 23/10
