Sam Winnall has been on the sidelines since February due to injury

The centre-forward will lead the line for Sheffield Wednesday's Under-23s in their meeting with Crewe Alexandra at Hillsborough this afternoon, kick-off 1pm.

Winnall, previously of Barnsley, has been on the sidelines since suffering knee ligament damage while on loan at Derby County last February. The 27-year-old then picked up a calf problem in September while he was entering the final stages of his rehabilitation following knee surgery.
