Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Liam Palmer will return to the starting line-up for his side's first ever meeting with Stevenage.

Palmer began the weekend win over MK Dons on the substitutes' bench but replaced Jermaine Johnson at half-time and scored the Owls' third goal.

Defender Julian Bennett returned to the side following a hamstring strain and manager Gary Megson is expected to stick with a 4-4-2 formation and make no other changes as his side look to extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Ryan Lowe (ankle) and fellow striker Chris O'Grady (foot) remain sidelined, while Richard O'Donnell will retain his place in goal during the continued absence of Nicky Weaver, who will be out for three months after having knee surgery.
