Sheffield Wednesday host Middlesbrough in the Championship tomorrow night.

Sheffield Wednesday welcome Middlesbrough tomorrow, for a huge game at the bottom of the Championship table.

Both sides have just one point to their name so far this season, with both managers starting to come under severe scrutiny.

Xisco Munoz is yet to claim his first win as Wednesday manager. His side put in another poor performance on Saturday losing at home to Ipswich Town, whilst Michael Carrick’s Middlesbrough lost away at Blackburn Rovers.

Sheffield Wednesday team news

Tomorrow’s game could see a number of players missing for Munoz, with Barry Bannan’s injury the most pressing.

The Owls captain was absent on Saturday, and Munoz said he was unsure what Bannan’s injury actually was, casting doubt over the 33-year-old’s presence tomorrow.

Dominic Iorfa started the game v Ipswich but was forced off in the first half, with Munoz saying after that he hopes the defender will be available for tomorrow.

Bambo Diaby and Will Vaulks missed the Ipswich game but it’s been suggested that they could return tomorrow.

Momo Diaby and Mallik Wilks remain sidelined.

Changes coming for Munoz?

Munoz needs to do something. He’s been chopping and changing his side, much to the critique of Wednesday fans, but still, nothing seems to be working.

Saturday’s performance was another bad one and so expect yet more changes tomorrow.

But with some fresh injuries in the side, expect those carrying knocks to be rested tomorrow with Munoz unlikely to risk the likes of Bannan or Iorfa from sustaining further injuries.

With that in mind, here’s how we expect the Owls to line up against Boro tomorrow night…
