Owls wait on Sam … Hunt ruled out

Wednesday wait to see if Sam Hutchinson has recovered from a back and groin injury for tomorrow’s trip to Fulham.

Hutchinson, who has performed well in the centre of defence in recent weeks, was forced off by the injury at Middlesbrough on Monday and if he fails to recover then Carlos Carvalhal could move Daniel Pudil into the role – as he did at Boro – or call up Vincent Sasso.

Liam Palmer is expected to continue at right back as Jack Hunt is ruled out through illness.

Carvalhal is likely to give Fernando Forestieri a starting place after he was rested onto the substitute’s bench on Monday while on-loan Gary Hooper could be back after a dead leg kept him out at Boro.
