Steven Fletcher is a doubt for Tuesday evening’s trip to Bolton after limping off with a foot injury at Derby on Saturday.
If Fletcher fails to recover in time then Atdhe Nuhiu, who replaced him in the second half at Derby, is the likely replacement.
Sam Winnall could also be pushing for a place in the starting line-up following his lengthy injury problems, the striker impressing when coming on for the disappointing George Boyd against the Rams.
Wednesday go into the game unbeaten in the last nine Championship matches – eight of them under Steve Bruce – and knowing that, depending on results elsewhere, victory could lift us into ninth place and three points from the play-off positions.
Bolton, with problems both on and off the pitch, will be boosted by Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Millwall but are still one off the bottom of the table and five points from safety.
