A bold switch and the return of the big man - Is this the Sheffield Wednesday XI to beat Burton Albion?

To stick or to twist? To freshen up or keep things rolling? That is one of several selection questions set to the Sheffield Wednesday managerial staff this week approaching their trip to Burton Albion.

The Owls collected their first win in nearly a month on Monday - against Accrington Stanley - to regain their place back at the top of the League One table.

But they’ll face a Burton Albion side who pose different tactical questions and are - like Stanley - scrapping for their lives at the bottom end of the table.

Based on the idea that Reece James and Mallik Wilks could both use a little time off-field after their knocks on Monday, here’s the slightly controversial side we’d plump for at the Pirelli.
