Team news


Owls: Lewis Buxton will be unavailable for the trip to Ashton Gate.

The defender was dismissed against Barnsley on Saturday after receiving two yellow cards and will now serve a one-match suspension.


Elsewhere, there are no fresh injury concerns for Wednesday.

Bristol City: Following a 3-0 defeat to Derby on Good Friday, the Robins are six points from safety, propping up the division.

Something which may give City hope is their recent home form after remaining unbeaten in their last six games at Ashton Gate.

Striker Sam Baldock – on nine goals for the season – was recalled to the starting line-up on Friday against Derby and is likely to partner top scorer Steven Davies, whose tally stands at 12.

Defender Louis Carey (knee) and Ryan Taylor (collarbone) are injury worries for the Robins.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "People keep telling me that results elsewhere aren’t going for us but my focus is what we do and nowhere else. It is much more satisfying if you get where you want to be by doing it yourself rather than relying on others.”

Sean O’Driscoll said: “When they’re running out against Sheffield Wednesday on Monday, they need to have done everything they can to be ready for it and show the spirit they’ve shown in the previous 13 games."
