Team news 
 
Owls: Lewis Buxton will be back available for selection after missing Easter Monday’s clash at Bristol City through suspension.

 

 

Loan duo Seyi Olofinjana and Stuart Holden could both return to the squad on Saturday.

 

Elsewhere the Owls have no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

 

Blackburn: Rovers have somewhat of a goalkeeper crisis at present with Jake Kean and Paul Robinson ruled out for the rest of the season.

 

Scan results have shown Kean has sustained torn cartilage in his left knee in Blackburn’s 3-0 defeat to Cardiff on Monday.

 

 

Robinson is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering complications following a back operation.

 

Young Polish keeper Grzegorz Sandomierski is likely to make only his second league appearance of the season.

 

Rovers’ twins Markus and Martin Olsson are both suffering with knocks and could be doubtful for the trip to Hillsborough.

 

Josh King, Lee Williamson and Nuno Gomes have all recovered from a bug that kept the trio out of the trip to Cardiff.

View from the dugout

 

Dave Jones said: "You can’t rely on what other are doing, you have to do it yourself. If you rely on somebody else to help you in football, it doesn’t normally work, so it’s best to do it yourself and you get more pleasure that way. We’re working hard for it and everyone is up for the fight.”

 

Caretaker manager Gary Bowyer said: “The preparations ahead of the Cardiff game took a little bit of a hit with a few of the players being ill, but hopefully we can get over them in the next couple of days and be ready for Sheffield Wednesday.”
