The Owls have an opportunity to enter the automatic promotions places following their narrow victory over Stoke City.

Sheffield Wednesday are currently sitting in third with seven victories in their first 13 games.

A victory over Leeds United would see them leapfrog their Yorkshire rivals into second place – and if results go their way they could finish the weekend top of England’s second tier.

Team News

Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk admitted he has a difficult decision to make on the selection of his goalkeeper after he confirmed Keiren Westwood’s recovery from an ankle injury.

The match comes too early for Owls skipper Tom Lees, who’s recovery from a hamstring injury has stepped up after re-joining full-time training on Thursday.

Leeds’ club captain Liam Cooper and midfielder Jamie Shackleton are both available for selection – the pair have been sidelined in recent weeks due to hamstring and calf issues respectively.

Pablo Hernandez, however, will miss out as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
