Wednesday set for Championship opener

Wednesday have no further injury problems for Saturday’s Championship curtain raiser at Brighton.

Lewis Buxton and Caolan Lavery are both ruled out with pre-season injuries and Jeremy Helan is unlikely to figure after suffering a stomach muscle problem.

Keiren Westwood is vying for the keeper ‘s slot with Chris Kirkland while fellow close season signing Tom Lees is expected to partner Glenn Loovens in the centre of defence.

Wednesday will be sporting the new away kit of yellow shirts with thin blue hoops against a Brighton side likely to include ex-Owl Chris O’Grady, who signed for the Seagulls in the summer.
