KICK OFF! Huddersfield get the game underway.




Danny Ward, who is back in goal for the visitors after serving a suspension, said: “It’s a hard place to come, we know they have got quality but we have also got quality defensively. The manager has always said we’re the small dog, so we’ve got that tag and we embrace it.”


Wednesday defender Tom Lees is hoping to make home advantage count at Hillsborough. "We've been fairly decent at home, that's what we will be looking for tonight. I imagine it will be decided on fine margins. We will be looking to impose ourselves more than the first leg. Hopefully the atmosphere will be fantastic as it usually is."


The Owls are unbeaten in eight games against Huddersfield in all competitions and have kept a clean sheet against them in all of the three games this season.
