Sheffield Wednesday have named Nathaniel Mendez-Laing on the bench for tonight’s League One clash against title-chasing Wigan Athletic as Darren Moore continues to navigate a manic run of fixtures.

His is the only change from a 2-0 win at Burton Albion on Saturday, with Florian Kamberi coming in to form a front two with Callum Paterson.

Moore has spoken about the need to rotate his squad as the post-Christmas league schedule continues to bite.

The Owls look set to line up with a 3-5-2 system once again. Wednesday are unbeaten on Tuesday nights this season and have lost just one game at home, though they will face a stern test from title-chasing Wigan, who have games in hand on top side Rotherham United who are six points ahead.
