Team News

Club captain Liam Cooper and midfielder Jamie Shackleton are both available for selection – the pair have been sidelined in recent weeks due to hamstring and calf issues respectively.

Pablo Hernandez, however, will miss out as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk admitted he has a difficult decision to make on the selection of his goalkeeper after he confirmed Keiren Westwood’s recovery from an ankle injury.

The match comes too early for Owls skipper Tom Lees, who’s recovery from a hamstring injury has stepped up after re-joining full-time training on Thursday.
