Sunderland vs Sheffield Wednesday team news

Sheffield Wednesday skipper Barry Bannan has been an almost ever-present this season but was substituted off against Portsmouth last time out after picking up an injury.

Sunderland’s Nathan Broadhead was also injured in their final match of the regular season.

Owls defender Harlee Dean could return after missing out against Pompey.

Josh Windass claimed an assist off the bench in that match as he stepped up his return from injury.

He could be closing in on a starting berth, with Wednesday manager Darren Moore preferring to blood returning players back into the fold gradually.
