Atdhe Nuhiu makes his third start of the season for Sheffield Wednesday in a two-man attack.

Keiren Westwood regains his place after his recovery from an ankle knock, with Cameron Dawson dropping to the bench.

The side is otherwise unchanged, but Wednesday will line up in a 4-4-2 formation, with Barry Bannan and Sam Hutchinson joining up again in a two-man central midfield.

Despite Monk’s assurances that Luongo had come through a knock that saw him taken off during Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Stoke, he doesn’t make the bench.
