Sheffield Wednesday predicted XI to face Bristol Rovers

Sheffield Wednesday return to League One action tonight as they take on Bristol Rovers at Hillsborough.

Darren Moore’s side lost ground in the automatic promotion race as they could only draw 1-1 at Lincoln City at the weekend, so they will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Joey Barton’s side tonight

Unfortunately for the Owls manager, he looks set to be without two of his key players for this game after both Ben Heneghan and Will Vaulks were forced off through injury at Sincil Bank on Saturday.

Here is how Football FanCast expects Moore to line up his Sheffield Wednesday side against the Pirates, with three changes anticipated from the team which started against Lincoln.

David Stockdale looks unlikely to lose his place in between the sticks any time soon after keeping eight clean sheets in the league so far this season.

With Heneghan out injured along with Reece James, Dominic Iorfa looks likely to return in a back three, with Michael Ihiekwe and Mark McGuinness both keeping their places.

Will Wednesday win tonight?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Marvin Johnson and Liam Palmer will most likely continue as the wing-backs if Moore decides to stick with the 3-4-1-2 formation that he has favoured for the majority of this season.

After Vaulks’ injury against Lincoln, George Byers looks the favourite to reclaim the starting spot alongside Barry Bannan in midfield, which is a blow for the Owls given the former Cardiff City man’s “quality” performances in recent outings.

Josh Windass seems undroppable on current form after registering four goals and four assists in 15 league appearances this season, so he should keep his place at attacking midfield.

Lee Gregory’s three goals in his last two games see him keep his place in attack, but Michael Smith now hasn’t scored since September, so Malik Wilks could replace him as Moore looks to earn another important three points on Wednesday night in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
