Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine is not expected to make many changes for the top-of-the-table clash with Carlisle.

Irvine has no new injury or suspension problems and although the Owls' unbeaten start came to a halt at Brentford last week, he is likely to pick an unchanged starting line-up.

Midfielder James O'Connor is pressing for a recall to the starting line-up. He was a second-half substitute for Chris Sedgwick at Brentford and gives Irvine an alternative option.

Summer signing Paul Heffernan, also a second-half substitute last week, is waiting for his first league start but Marcus Tudgay and Neil Mellor appear to be Irvine's first-choice strikers.

The only first-team squad member sidelined through injury remains winger Jermaine Johnson, who is working his way back from a knee injury.

Carlisle could be without Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and Kevan Hurst.

Bridge-Wilkinson hurt his ankle during training last week and missed the goalless home draw with Swindon while fellow midfielder Hurst is struggling with a back problem and could also miss out.

Defender Danny Livesey remains sidelined and has targeted a return some time during October following his long-term groin injury.

Manager Greg Abbott has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side look to maintain their unbeaten start in npower League One.

Recent signing Lubo Michalik made his debut in central defence last week and is expected to start again while Ben Marshall, back on loan from Stoke, is pushing for a place in the starting line-up.
