Wednesday hope the injured trio of Dominic Iorfa, Tom Lees and Izzy Brown will be fit to return to the squad for tomorrow’s ‘derby’ clash at Rotherham.
They have all been back in full training and are in contention for a place in the 18. The return of Iorfa and Lees, or at least one of them, would add much-needed strength and experience at the back while Brown’s energy and creativity have been missed in midfield.
Joost van Aken starts the first of a three-game ban following his red card against Luton on Saturday and Massimo Luongo continues to be sidelined with his knee injury.
Two home defeats in the space of four days dealt a big blow to Garry Monk’s hopes of moving us into a positive points total, following our pre-season 12-point deduction.
Instead, we go into the match at Rotherham still on minus four points and nine away from the safety of fourth from bottom.
