Sheffield Wednesday - Birmingham City

Will Packwood and Jonathan Spector look to help Birmingham City get their first win of the season as they take to the road and play Sheffield Wednesday.

Packwood and Spector both featured, despite both players being questionable due to injuries. It is likely that they see time once again on Tuesday.

Birmingham came from behind in the dying minutes of their weekend game to draw with Charlton Athletic at home. They look to improve this midweek and grab three points.

Wednesday drew with Derby County at the weekend and also look to grab three points in their first home game of the season.

Bolton Wanderers - Derby County

Tim Ream and Bolton host Conor Doyle and Derby County in their first home game of the season.

Ream started Bolton's opener and should see the field on Tuesday, while Conor Doyle is expected to be on Derby County's game day roster.

Bolton's first game of the season ended disappointingly as they went down to Burnley 2-0 on the road. They look to bounce back and give their gans something to cheer about in the midweek.

Derby County drew with Sheffield Wednesday in their home opener this season.

Stuart Holden continues to recover from knee surgery and will miss the game.

Scunthorpe United - Crewe Alexandria

Mike Grella and Scunthorpe United look for their first win of the season as they take on Crewe Alexandria.

Grella started and went the distance in Scunthorpe's opener. The forward should see the field once again on Tuesday.

Scunthorpe went down to Crawley Town easily by a 3-0 scoreline, while Crewe Alexandria also lost their opener against Notts County.

Both teams look to bounce back and get their season's rolling with three points.
