Preview: Sheffield Wednesday XI vs QPR – latest team and injury news, predicted lineup

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to build on their emphatic Easter Monday victory at Hillsborough Stadium when they head to the capital this afternoon.

In Darren Moore’s absence, the Owls demolished Cardiff to move to within seven points of safety, though they will have to keep that form up if the Yorkshiremen are to stand even the slightest chance in staying up.

Next up is Queens Park Rangers in west London, but what sort of XI could we see today?

Here’s the XI we’re predicting…

Despite the 5-0 win, Moore could make three changes from Monday.

After making the bench for that match, veteran goalkeeper Keiren Westwood may well return between the sticks, taking the place of Joe Wildsmith whilst a back three trio of Julian Borner, Tom Lees and Osaze Urhoghide will certainly remain after an impressive clean sheet.

Adam Reach bagged himself a brace from left wing-back and is expected to continue in that role and after that success, we may see Kadeem Harris come back in on the other flank as he offers far more attacking returns than Liam Palmer. The 29-year-old is axed as the second change.

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

In the engine room, Barry Bannan, who ran the game against the Bluebirds should push on slightly further forward. Moore will surely want his influence right up there, so we could see Joey Pelupessy make a start alongside Sam Hutchinson as a defensive-midfield double pivot.

It means Callum Paterson has to make way in the third and final change despite scoring against his former club. He’ll need a little rest before some big games coming up.

Whilst upfront, we’re likely to see Jordan Rhodes and Josh Windass remain.
