Owls boss Steve Bruce has made two changes for the visit to Championship strugglers Millwall.

Midfielder Joey Pelupessy and Lucas Joao have been recalled to the starting XI, with George Boyd and Fernando Forestieri making way.

Captain Tom Lees (shin) misses out for the second match running, meaning Jordan Thorniley partners Michael Hector at the heart of their defence.

Fans favourite Barry Bannan makes his 150th Wednesday appearance.

January signings Dominic Iorfa, Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons are on the bench.

Striker Gary Hooper (groin) and midfielders Kieran Lee (hip) and Josh Onomah (hamstring) are still unavailable for selection.

Owls: Westwood; Palmer, Hector, Thorniley, Fox; Pelupessy, Bannan, Hutchinson; Reach, Joao, Fletcher. Substitutes: Dawson, Lazaar, Aarons, Iorfa, Forestieri, Nuhiu, Boyd.
