Football - Owls trio in fitness race

Sheffield Wednesday trio Reda Johnson, Gary Madine and Seyi Olofinjana are all hoping to prove their fitness in time to face Ipswich.

Defender Johnson missed the goalless midweek draw at Blackpool as he continues to manage an on-going foot problem, striker Madine has been struggling with a hamstring strain and midfielder Olofinjana, on loan from Hull, has missed the last two games due to a knee injury.

Manager Dave Jones has no new injury or suspension worries and could recall Leroy Lita for the Owls' penultimate home game up front alongside Jermaine Johnson, with Steve Howard, on-loan from Hartlepool, starting on the substitutes' bench.

Jones must decide whether to start again with on-loan Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden or recall Keiran Lee as his side look to increase the three-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
