Football - Wickham may get start for Owls

Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones could hand a first start to Connor Wickham when his side take on Birmingham at St Andrew's.

The England Under-21 international impressed when he came off the bench against Derby last week and could be in line to start if the manager decides to shuffle his pack.

Jones will check on the fitness of a number of first-team players after they picked up knocks in training, but is not expected to make many changes to the side that came from behind to draw 2-2 with Derby.

The Owls, who currently sit 20th in the npower Championship table, are looking to extend their unbeaten run to six league games as they bid to avoid relegation.
