A win for Darren Moore’s side against MK Dons would move them two places up to fifth in the League One table with four games to play.

But standing in their way is a side looking to make it 16 games unbeaten and back into the automatic promotion spots.

The Owls won 2-1 in the second leg in November, but their away record this season is modest.

Wednesday’s away record – is it that bad?

In short, no. But it’s not great either, just average.

They have won six of their 20 matches on the road this season, drawing eight and losing six. This puts them eleventh in the Ligue 1 away table.

Wednesday may not have won since February, but they’ve only made three trips since then.

One reason for the focus on the Owls’ fairly average away record is their strength at home.

Darren Moore’s side have the best home record in England’s top four divisions.

It’s also worth noting that MK Dons’ record at home is hardly daunting.

They have won 12 of their 21 games at Stadium MK and have been beaten four times on their home turf.
