MARK Beevers is challenging for his first start for the the Owls in five months at Blackpool tomorrow as Gary Megson hails the versatility of his squad.
The defender is a contender at centre-half or left-back after making a comeback in the latter spot as a sub in the 3-1 win at Scunthorpe after Daniel Jones was carried off.
“Mark went in and did really well; we have players who accept that they may have to play out of position and don’t use it as an excuse,” said Megson.
The Owls boss must change his defence line-up because centre-back Miguel Llera is cup-tied and left-back Jones is ruled out. Beevers’ chances of starting also depend on fitness checks on Rob Jones, Reda Johnson and Julian Bennett.
Megson added: “If Mark plays, he’s got an opportunity. If it isn’t long-standing then he’s got the opportunity to go and show what he can do elsewhere.
“It was an emergency thing for Mark on Tuesday; he did it for an hour and did it very well.”
One of Beevers’ two starts this season - before he had a loan spell at MK Dons - was against Blackpool in the Carling Cup.
Megson has confirmed an interest in Premier League Swansea midfielder Ferrie Bodde. Any move would probably be a loan, with the Owls planning talks with the Swans
