The Owls have made the trip to the home of their South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers for a ‘bounce match’ that will offer much-needed minutes to some of the players to have found themselves out of contention in recent weeks – and will provide an opportunity for them to press their case for more league involvement.

Among those in the starting line-up for the Eco-Power Stadium run-out are George Byers and Dennis Adeniran, who will hope to get vital minutes under their belt as their recovery from injury continues.
