Sheffield Wednesday host Bolton at Hillsborough in fine form and targeting a fourth straight league success.


Sheffield Wednesday(4-4-2): Westwood; Palmer, Lees, Loovens, Dielna; Maguire, Lee, Semedo, Maghoma; Nuhiu, May.

Bolton (4-2-3-1): Lonergan; McNaughton, Mills, Dervitte or Wheater, Ream; Vela, Danns; Feeney, Gudjohnsen, Pratley; Heskey.


Eidur Gudjohnsen is a class act. Fourteen years after leaving Bolton, the Iceland forward rejoined the Lancashire club last month, penning a deal until the end of the season following his release by Club Brugge. The 36-year-old, formerly of Chelsea and Barcelona, claimed his first goal since returning to Bolton in their 1-1 draw with Leeds United last week.


Bolton will fancy their chances of picking up a result against Wednesday, having triumphed on their last three visits to Hillsborough. It finished goalless when the two sides last met in September as Owls failed to breach Bolton’s rearguard despite having 24 attempts at goal.


Graham Scott: The Oxfordshire whistler has officiated 26 matches this term, dishing out 79 bookings and one red card. He las took charge of a Wednesday match in April 2014 when they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at eventual Championship title winners Leicester City.
