Experienced goalkeeper Keiren Westwood was named in the Owls’ starting line-up at 2pm but was went off holding his ribs midway through the warm-up.
Back-up keeper Joe Wildsmith will take his place.
The Star understands Westwood was in consideration for a recall to the Republic of Ireland side for their forthcoming World Cup qualifiers but that there were concerns over his fitness.
The 36-year-old sat out of a run of four matches in February and March with a rib injury but has come back into the side desperate to take his Wednesday tally of 193 appearances to the 200-mark.
Asked how his ribs were in yesterday’s press conference, Westwood hinted to The Star that all was not 100 per cent.
“I don't really want you printing anything, so I can't really answer that,” he said, laughing.
“I don't want it going out for everyone to see.”
