Sam Hutchinson is back in contention for a starting place when Wednesday face unbeaten league leaders Brighton at Hillsborough tomorrow night.
He missed Saturday’s win over Forest after the exertions of the midweek cup triumph against Arsenal but is ready to return for the visit of Albion.
If selected, then Hutchinson is likely to replace Jose Semedo, who took on the holding midfield role on Saturday.
Carlos Carvalhal has also confirmed that recent loan signing Gary Hooper will be in the squad against a Brighton side who have never won in the league at Hillsborough in 13 attempts.
Wednesday go into game on a 10-match unbeaten run and knowing that victory could lift us into the play-off positions.
