Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine could be tempted to recall winger Jermaine Johnson to his starting line-up for the home clash with Bristol City.

Johnson stepped off the substitutes' bench midway through the second half in Saturday's 1-1 draw at QPR and had an instant impact on the game.

The Jamaica international had missed the previous three matches due to a hamstring injury.

Defender Lewis Buxton returned to the side at Loftus Road after being sidelined since the end of January with a similar problem and came through unscathed.

Irvine, whose relegation battlers are now unbeaten in their last six league matches, has no other new injury or suspension problems.

Strikers Leon Clarke and Francis Jeffers, midfielder Michael Gray and defenders Frank Simek and Richard Hinds are all pushing for a return to the side.

Bristol City caretaker manager Keith Millen will be without goalkeeper Dean Gerken.

The 24-year-old had to be stretchered off in the closing stages of Saturday`s match with Nottingham Forest following a challenge from Nathan Tyson and looks set to miss the rest of the season with a suspected broken collarbone.

Stephen Henderson or Steve Collis will take over between the sticks at Hillsborough in Gerken's absence.

Long-term absentees Jamie McAllister (calf), James Wilson and Jamie McCombe (both knee) remain on the sidelines.

Winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce is expected to continue at left-back ahead of recent loan signing Gary Sawyer.

The Robins are unbeaten in four games since Millen replaced Gary Johnson and will be hoping to continue that run.
