Barry Bannan is out for Sheffield Wednesday as he completes his three-match ban for a red card against Nottingham Forest.

Wednesday are still missing Filipe Melo, who has a knee injury, and Modou Sougou, who has a shoulder problem.

Blackburn defender Shane Duffy serves a one-game ban from his sending-off against Preston at the weekend.

Defender Grant Hanley is back after a one-match ban and Jason Lowe (foot) could play his first game since August.

  • No team has scored more goals at home than Sheffield Wednesday (36) in the Championship this season.
