The Owls are currently dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak that led to the closure of their Middlewood Road training ground and postponement of games against Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers.

The amount of positive cases and players in self-isolation meant that they were only able to name four subs against Exeter City in the FA Cup, while their interim manager, Neil Thompson, couldn’t attend after testing positive himself.

Now, given the time between games, it is likely that Thompson will be back on the sideline for the trip to Goodison Park, though it remains to be seen what playing personnel will be available.

There are indications, however, that Andre Green could be in line for an Owls debut after being registered by SWFC and meeting some of his teammates, while Jack Marriott may be back following his return from Derby County.

Josh Windass could also make his return from injury in Merseyside, and if all three are available then it gives Thompson a fair bit of choice when choosing his starting XI.

Meanwhile, the club are also waiting to find out whether the likes of Keiren Westwood, Chey Dunkley, Julian Börner and Massimo Luongo could be back available, with the break in games giving them a bit more tome to recover.

Andre Green could potentially get his Sheffield Wednesday debut against Everton.

Wednesday face the Toffees on January 24th in a televised affair for a spot in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup against either Wycombe Wanderers or Tottenham Hotspur.
