Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones could give several players late fitness tests ahead his side's game at Watford.

Jones did not reveal the identity of those players who sustained knocks in the weekend defeat to Nottingham Forest, but could be forced to make one or two changes.

Jeremy Helan, on loan from Manchester City, returned in place of Kieran Lee on Saturday and is expected to continue in midfield, but defender Reda Johnson remains sidelined with an ankle problem.

Striker Gary Madine, winger Jermaine Johnson, plus midfielders Rhys McCabe and Jose Semedo could all provide Jones with alternative options if any of his starting line-up against Forest fail to make it.

The Owls, four points clear of the relegation zone, have lost only one of their last seven league matches.
