Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has some selection headaches to deal with ahead of tomorrow's trip to Bolton Wanderers, including the potential return of Sam Hutchinson.

In his pre-match press briefing, Carvalhal revealed that aside from the long-term injuries to George Boyd and Fernando Forestieri, only Keiren Westwood is a doubt for the match against the Championship's bottom club.

Westwood damaged his ribs against Cardiff City and then played through the pain against Sheffield United. However he missed the last two games against Birmingham City and Leeds United, with Joe Wildsmith deputising well.

Carvalhal says he will wait until tomorrow before making a final decision on his keeper.

"(Westwood) is progressing, not training 100% but we can say he is near 100%, let's take a decision tomorrow," said Carvalhal. "We have training today, he trained yesterday, not with the team but he is progressing and we will take a decision."

Aside from that Carvalhal has a strong squad available for selection with Hutchinson back from injury alongside Glenn Loovens and Jack Hunt who has recovered from an ongoing knee complaint

"After (Westwood) everything is ok," added Carvalhal. "We are training with everybody fit apart from the long term Forestieri and George Boyd. The level of the training is very good this last two weeks.It was good that we stopped for the international break because we recovered players and the internal competition is higher."
