Steven Fletcher starts up front for Sheffield Wednesday

Jordan Thorniley has been restored to the defence, Barry Bannan returns to midfield following a one-match suspension while Steven Fletcher comes into the attack. Joey Pelupessy, Atdhe Nuhiu and Fernando Forestieri dropped to the bench.

The Owls, seeking to extend their unbeaten Championship run to four matches, are still without forward Marco Matias (hamstring). Long-term absentees Gary Hooper, Sam Winnall, Kieran Lee and Joost van Aken all remain on the sidelines.
