Sheffield Wednesday defender Liam Palmer is expecting a physical test against Burton Albion this weekend.
The Owls return to the scene of last season's 3-1 defeat to Albion, when Nigel Clough's side's superior intensity saw them secure their first Championship points.
This time around, both Burton and Wednesday head into tomorrow's clash on the back of their first league victory of the campaign - and both would reflect on positive starts to the current campaign with three points at the Pirelli Stadium.
And Palmer - who featured for Carlos Carvalhal's men in the Brewers' win last August - knows he and his teammates will have to be equal to a tough test from Burton if they are to further their promotion credentials.
"We lost 3-1 at their place, and I'm sure they will be right up for it again.
"It is a tight pitch and the fans are right on top of you.
"Burton are a strong, physical side, so we will have to match them in that department and hopefully our quality will shine through."
While Albion took their place in the Carabao Cup third round with victory at Cardiff City on Tuesday - a trip to holders Manchester United their reward - the Owls fell to second-tier rivals Bolton Wanderers.
Palmer says the trip to Burton will give them a chance to provide an immediate response.
"The good thing is the games come thick and fast, and we quickly have an opportunity to put things right at Burton," he added.
"We need to kick on from the last 20 minutes we produced at Bolton and start well."
