Matt Penney drops to the substitutes bench.

Joao will partner Steven Fletcher, who has shrugged off a head injury, up front as the Owls target back-to-back Championship wins for the first time since September.

Owls: Dawson; Palmer, Hector, Lees, Thorniley; Matias, Pelupessy, Bannan, Reach; Joao, Fletcher. Substitutes: Wildsmith, Fox, Pudil, Onomah, Penney, Nuhiu, Forestieri.
