Sheffield Wednesday will be without midfielder Tommy Miller for their home clash with Yeovil.

But new signing Mark Reynolds could be in contention for his debut following his permanent switch from Motherwell last week.

The central defender was not included in the Owls' squad in Saturday's defeat at Leyton Orient, but striker Gary Madine made his debut and is hoping to retain his place after coming off at half-time.

Miller sustained a hamstring injury on Saturday and was replaced by Jermaine Johnson just before the hour-mark.

Johnson is expected to start against Yeovil, but Darren Potter, an unused substitute in Saturday's 4-0 defeat, provides manager Alan Irvine with another option.

The Owls are still without versatile defender Lewis Buxton, still struggling with a hamstring problem, while full-back Jon Otsemobor remains sidelined due to a calf injury.

Terry Skiverton could hand Oli Johnson and Alex Russell their first starts for Yeovil.

On-loan striker Johnson played the last 27 minutes of the 1-0 defeat to Rochdale, while Russell played the final 19 minutes and both could be handed a chance from the start as the Glovers look to return to winning ways at Hillsborough.

Skiverton will again be without Jean-Paul Kalala as the midfielder serves the final game of a four-match ban for striking an opponent against MK Dons on January 3.

Defender Craig Alcock has been struggling with a back injury and could miss out again but striker Andy Williams is set to continue after shaking off a hamstring injury to play 90 minutes against Rochdale.

Goalkeeper Richard Martin will have to wait for his second debut with on-loan Stephen Henderson set to continue between the posts.
