Sheffield Wednesday vs Mansfield lineups

Sheffield Wednesday

The past few weeks have not been very kind on Sheffield Wednesday; they are currently on a three-match losing streak, and have lost seven of their last eight games. Xisco will have to turn things around quickly if he intends to stay in charge of the club for much longer; it'll be interesting to see how Sheffield Wednesday will match-up against Mansfield. Mohamed Diaby is still sidelined for the hosts.

Predicted lineups: Vásquez, Paterson, Palmer, Diaby, Bernard, Delgado, Windass, Byers, Bannan, Gregory, Smith.

Mansfield

In contrast, Mansfield have enjoyed some fine form in recent weeks; they are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions, with five wins and three draws. Nigel Clough's men will look to extend their unbeaten run to nine matches, and they'll fancy their chances against a struggling Sheffield Wednesday side. Stephen Quinn will be unavailable for the visitors, after picking up an injury in their 3-2 win over Stockport last weekend.

Predicted lineups: Pym, Bowery, Williams, Flint, MacDonald, Maris, Reed, Clarke, Dunn, Akins, Oates.

Starting lineups

*Lineups will be automatically updated shortly after they're announced.

Player to watch: Davis Keillor-Dunn

We've been impressed by Davis Keillor-Dunn's performances this season; he has played six games across all competitions for Mansfield so far, bagging five goals and two assists. As a matter of fact, only two players have scored more goals than Keillor-Dunn in League Two. The 26 year old scored a brace against Stockport last weekend; and considering Sheffield Wednesday conceded seven times in their last three games, they should face all sorts of problems from Davis Keillor-Dunn.
