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.
