Wednesday now sit just two points behind Sheff U after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Colchester on Tuesday evening.
This was their last game in hand on us and it means we go into the last 10 matches of the season having clawed back on their greater points advantage of just a few weeks ago.
Leaders Charlton are 11 points clear of us in third place and nine points in front of Sheff U in second spot. However, the Londoners have lost two successive home games and defeat at Scunthorpe on Saturday would turn a blip into a serious wobble.
We will be backed by a sellout 4,500 following for the tough trip to in-form Notts County on Saturday while Sheff U entertain a Tranmere side who have won their last two games under new boss Ronnie Moore.
