Anthony Gardner will not feature again for Sheffield Wednesday this year

The former Tottenham defender is expected to be missing for five months after snapping his Achilles tendon in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough, with the Owls hoping to sign Roger Johnson from Wolves to fill the void.

Right-back Lewis Buxton could return to the side after recovering from the hamstring strain that kept him out at Boro, and on-loan West Ham defender Jordan Spence will be in contention after making his debut at the Riverside.

Midfielder Kieran Lee (hip) and defender Joe Mattock (knee) are not ready to make their comebacks at this stage.
