Tickets are now on general sale after season-card holders were given a period of exclusivity to secure their regular seats for the game.

The attendance is set to be the biggest of the season by far, which came when a crowd of 38,395 watched Jermain Defoe make his second debut for the club in a 2-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers.

Sheffield Wednesday have been granted an allocation of 2,000 for the game, with the attendance set to rise well above the 40,000 mark before kick off at 7.45.
