Fernando Forestieri should be eligible for selection after completing his three match ban for his involvement in a pre-season brawl at Mansfield Town.

Leeds are without Patrick Bamford who has a long-term knee injury that has ruled him out for four months.

What are the betting odds?

Sky Bet have a Wednesday win at 2/1, a draw at 12/5 and a Leeds win at 13/10.

What is the form of Wednesday and Leeds?

Leeds are on a roll at the top of the Championship table and will take some effort to stop, with five wins and 19 goals already under their belts.

But Bielsa's side lost their unbeaten status against Birmingham City last weekend, as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat.

Last week's defeat to Nottingham Forest appears to be a hiccup for Sheffield Wednesday, who returned to winning ways against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Luhukay's side are currently 10th in the table with four wins, two draws and two defeats.
