Assistant manager Hutchings has grabbed the reins on a temporary basis after Paul Jewell parted ways with Town by mutual consent on Wednesday, coming after a 2-1 defeat to Derby left the club winless in 11 games and bottom of the table.

It is not known how Hutchings will line up for the encounter, with Jewell making one change against Derby from the XI beaten at Hull last weekend as Andy Drury came into midfield in place of Daryl Murphy.

Striker Paul Taylor (foot) remains a long-term absentee while full-back Elliott Hewitt is expected to be ruled out again with tonsillitis.

Sheffield Wednesday pair Jay Bothroyd and Anthony Gardner could both return to contention for the game.

Striker Bothroyd missed the midweek defeat at Blackburn due to illness and an ankle knock, while defender Gardner also sat it out at Ewood Park with a slight knee complaint.

Manager Dave Jones has no new injury or suspension problems, but midfielder Rhys McCabe (thigh) remains doubtful and new signing Adam Davies will be on the bench again as regular back-up goalkeeper Stephen Bywater is sidelined with pneumonia and Arron Jameson is out with a groin strain.

Right-back Joe Mattock returned to the bench as an unused substitute in midweek and is also in contention, but defender Reda Johnson (foot) and midfielder Chris Lines (groin) remain long-term absentees.

The Owls, who slipped to second from bottom of the table this week, are chasing their first league win in 10 matches.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
