Sheffield Wednesday v Charlton

Sheffield Wednesday’s new loan signings Leon Best, Sam Hutchinson and Gary Gardner could all feature.

Gardner’s arrival offsets the injury blow suffered by Jose Semedo, who fractured his fibula and damaged ligaments in the midweek defeat to Wigan.

Boss Gray also hopes to be boosted by the return of centre-half Glenn Loovens, who has missed the last three games due to a hamstring injury.

Charlton manager Chris Powell has rated first-choice goalkeeper Ben Hamer “50/50” to be fit because of an ankle injury which has restricted him to just one appearance since November 23.

Left-back Rhoys Wiggins (hamstring) could miss out once more while the Addicks are still without defenders Chris Solly and Leon Cort (both knee) as they look for relief in the cup after four successive league defeats.

Top scorers (all competitions): Chris Maguire (Sheff Wed) 6; Simon Church (Charlton) 6
