Football - Buxton ready for Owls return

Sheffield Wednesday have Lewis Buxton available for the visit of Blackburn.

The right-back was sent off during the 2-1 win over Barnsley on Saturday and was hit with a one-match ban that ruled him out of the trip to Bristol City.

Buxton was replaced by Kieran Lee for Easter Monday's draw but is expected to return as the Owls look to avoid slipping back into the bottom three.

Dave Jones is boosted by the return of midfielders Seyi Olofinjana and Stuart Holden to fitness. The loanees, who both made their Wednesday debuts against Barnsley, have overcome the knee injuries that ruled them out on Monday.

Jermaine Johnson is also fully fit after he was withdrawn early in the second half at Ashton Gate because of concerns over his hamstring, while Steve Howard is pushing for a first start at Hillsborough since joining from Hartlepool.
