Kirkland in Owls frame
Chris Kirkland is set to take to the pitch for the first time since he was attacked as Sheffield Wednesday travel to Blackburn on Wednesday night.
The goalkeeper fell to the ground having been pushed in the face by a Leeds fan who ran on to the pitch after his side's equaliser in Friday night's 1-1 draw. After receiving treatment Kirkland was fit to continue for the remaining 10 or more minutes and is now poised to return to action at Ewood Park.
Former Everton goalkeeper Adam Davies will take his place on the bench having signed on a month-to-month contract with the Owls. His arrival comes with regular back-up stopper Stephen Bywater ruled out with pneumonia and Arron Jameson having suffered a recurrence of a groin strain.
Striker Jay Bothroyd, who scored the Owls' opener against Leeds, faces a fitness test having been struck down with illness.
Right-back Joe Mattock returns to the fold after missing the game with a virus which swept through the Wednesday squad, but Rhys McCabe has been ruled out with a thigh injury.
Reda Johnson (foot) and Chris Lines (groin) remain sidelined.
