Pair ready for return to action

Wednesday are expected to give long-term injury casualties, Sam Winnall and Sam Hutchinson, runouts for the under-23s at home to Crewe on Friday lunchtime.

Jos Luhukay has indicated that both players are likely to figure for at least part of the game, along with Morgan Fox, who has been out of action recently with an ankle problem.

Joe Wildsmith is also pencilled in to play in goal, having so far spent the season sitting on the first team bench as number two to Cameron Dawson.
