Breaking News ! Who comes in for Liam Shaw? We know that Owls caretaker boss Neil Thompson is not a big fan of squad rotation. But he will have to make a minimum of one change to his starting XI when Wednesday travel to second-placed Brentford tomorrow evening. There is a midfield spot up for grabs, with Liam Shaw banned for the next two matches after his red card against Birmingham City. The conservative selection would be to play Joey Pelupessy. The Dutchman is a naturally defensive-minded player. His strengths are his work rate and disrupting the opposition's flow. The likelihood is Wednesday will have to do a lot of chasing and defending at the Brentford Community Stadium. However, Pelupessy does not offer bags of quality on the ball at a time when the Owls desperately need more creativity and goal threat in the centre.

Dele-Bashiru, a dynamic but inexperienced player at this level, scored a stunning long range goal to further enhance his reputation. His second-string performance culminated in him coming on as a late sub, ahead of Brown, for the first-team last Saturday. Neither Dele-Bashiru nor Brown have started this calendar year. Not since the Rotherham humiliation back in October has Dele-Bashiru played from the start while Brown has failed to win over three managers. The Chelsea loanee's last start came under Garry Monk away at Bristol City on September 27.

But then again, what have the Owls got lose? Unleashing either Dele-Bashiru or Brown could ease the creative burden on captain Barry Bannan and give them a greater chance of causing an upset. Maybe it is a gamble worth taking. System change? Will Thompson will stick with 4-4-2 or revert to 3-5-2 in west London? Thompson has frequently tweaked their formation since taking over the reins from Tony Pulis and he has also demonstrated that he is prepared to make tactical changes during matches. You have to be adaptable to be successful in the rough and tumble of the Championship.

. Brentford are famed for playing an entertaining, expansive brand of football. Widely regarded as a progressive, possession-based team, the Bees will look to play on the front foot in their 4-3-3 shape. There is a strong argument for Wednesday lining up with three central midfielders to combat the Bees threat. The Owls have arguably looked most comfortable and achieved their best results playing 3-5-2 this season. Plus, playing 4-4-2 did not work out well for them over the weekend. Where are the goals going to come from? It is the question we have been asking all season long. The Owls have the worst attack in the league, finding the back of the net a meagre 21 times in 30 outings. Callum Paterson is their top-scorer in the Championship with six goals. There is no disputing the fact that Wednesday should have added another centre-forward in the January transfer window. But Thompson will have to work with the tools he has got between now and May 8 when the season ends. Owls striker Callum Paterson (Image: Getty Images) Wednesday's away record It is dreadful. The Owls have won once on their travels since mid-October, taking five points out of the last 36 on offer. If Wednesday are to climb out of the bottom three, they can't just keep relying on their home form. The Owls must start winning more points on the road. It almost goes without saying how important the first goal is tomorrow. Wednesday have yet to pick up a single point from a losing position this season. The last time the Owls won after falling behind? Brentford at home in December 2019. Ending the Brentford hoodo Wednesday have a miserable record away against Brentford, losing on their last three trips there. This will, however, be their first visit to the Bees new ground and they will be hoping for a change in fortune. The Owls were hammered 5-0 in this fixture last term before the first national lockdown. It was also the last time Wednesdayites watched their team in action.
