The Reds and the Owls face off in the play-off final for a spot in the Championship in just a few days’ time, and while Wednesday have a whole host of players out of action at present it would appear that Duff has no such dilemma.

He said they have a ‘full squad’ available, explaining that they’ll be heading down on London on Friday and training at Brentford’s facilities in the build-up.

Speaking to the media on Thursday, the Reds boss explained, “We will train at Brentford and play the game on Monday and try and keep it as normal as we can, without trying to hide the fact that it's a big game at Wembley.

"We have a full squad. Luckily - amazingly - no-one seems to be feeling anything with a big game coming up... Touch wood, the next two or three days training go well. It's the same pool of players to pick from.

"I just want the players to show the best version of themselves and then we will see what happens.”

Wednesday had to substitute both Marvin Johnson and Dominic Iorfa after they picked up knocks in the second leg of their play-off semifinal against Peterborough United, but the hope will be that both will have been able to shrug off those niggles in time for the club’s trip to the capital this weekend.
