Ahead of the Owls’ Championship clash against Yeovil on Saturday, gives the low down on the opposition:

Yeovil have a number of suspension concerns following last weekend’s eventful clash at Reading.

Having led 1-0 at the break at the Madejski, three Yeovil players were sent off in the second half but the Glovers managed to leave with a point in the 1-1 draw.

Byron Webster was set to serve a two-match ban after his dismissal last weekend but following an official appeal from the club, the FA have overturned his red card and the defender is available for selection on Saturday.

But the Glovers will still be without Joe Ralls and Kieffer Moore who also saw red against the Royals.

Sam Hoskins, Liam Davis and Joel Grant are all injury doubts.

The Glovers have given their survival hopes a boost in recent weeks, undefeated in four, and are now just two points from safety.

James Hayter leads the way in front of goal with six in all competitions – four in the Championship.

The striker scored a crucial goal in the Glovers’ recent 1-0 win over relegation rivals Doncaster.

Ishmael Miller is close behind with five goals this term, all of which have come in the Championship.

The ex-Middlesbrough and Forest man has scored three goals in his last seven appearances.

Yeovil have conceded just two goals in their previous four games and that has played a big part in their rise off the bottom of the table.

Bryon Webster has been key for Yeovil in the heart of the defence and is also a presence in the opposition's final third with four goals this season.

The defender has escaped a two-match ban after harshly seeing red against Reading last weekend.

Joe Ralls has accumulated eight yellow cards and one red card this term. His dismissal came last weekend and as a result will not feature against Wednesday.

Kieffer Moore was sent off in the same game against the Royals – his first red of the campaign.

Byron Webster has been sent off twice this season although, as previously mentioned, his red card from last weekend has been rescinded.

Joe Edwards and Luke Ayling have picked up six yellow cards each this term. 

After successive league defeats to Derby, Nottingham Forest and Leeds, Yeovil have shown more promise in recent weeks and are undefeated in their last four outings.

The Glovers, though, have lost more games on home soil than any other Championship side this season with nine defeats.
