Hooper doubt as Owls prepare for play-offs

Gary Hooper remains a major doubt for Wednesday as we prepare for Sunday’s Championship play-off first leg semi-final at Huddersfield.

Hooper is struggling with a hamstring injury, with reports indicating he could miss both legs of the semi-final.

That aside, Carlos Carvalhal will revert to his first team line-up after making 10 changes for our final league game against Fulham last weekend.

We wait to see if Sam Hutchinson gets a starting place after returning to the side against Fulham, following his calf problem. If Hooper is out then Carvalhal will need to choose a replacement up front with Fernando Forestieri or Jordan Rhodes the most likely to get the nod.
