Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has named an unchanged side for the visit of Stoke City this evening.

Cameron Dawson continues in goal as first-choice shot-stopper Keiren Westwood has failed to shake off an ankle injury suffered in the warm-up before the draw with Cardiff City on Friday.

Monk has resisted the temptation to hand a start to forward Fernando Forestieri, who is a substitute for the second match running. Sam Winnall has also been named on the bench, but Newcastle United loanee Jacob Murphy and £8m club-record signing Jordan Rhodes miss out on the matchday squad altogether.

Club captain Tom Lees remains unavailable for selection, despite returning to training after recovering from a hamstring injury in August that has sidelined him for the last 11 matches.

Owls: Dawson; Palmer, Iorfa, Börner, Fox; Hutchinson; Reach, Bannan, Luongo, Harris; Fletcher. Substitutes: Jones, Lee, Pelupessy, Winnall, Nuhiu, Odubajo, Forestieri.
