Team News for  Sheffield Wednesday v Preston North End

Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk hopes to have Kieran Lee and Tom Lees available for the Sky Bet Championship clash with Preston.

Midfielder Lee was replaced a half-time in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Swansea with a calf problem, but his premature exit was precautionary and he could be involved.

Defender Lees has not figured since the resumption after lockdown because of a hamstring injury but is closing in on a return, as is loan signing Josh Windass (calf).

However, defender Osaze Urhoghide is facing several weeks on the sidelines with a knee problem.

Preston will once again be without central defender Paul Huntington through suspension as they attempt to end a seven-game winless run.

Huntington serves the second game of a three-match ban after being charged with violent conduct following an incident in which he stood on Derby’s Louie Sibley.

His absence for Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Huddersfield was one of four changes made by manager Alex Neil as he, Paul Gallagher, Scott Sinclair and David Nugent made way.

That meant first starts since the return for midfielders Ryan Ledson and Josh Harrop, and both will hope for a further chance to show what they can do.

Sheffield Wednesday v Preston North End

     Sheffield Wednesday 1-3 Preston North End - Match Report

    John Egan strikes again as Sheffield United snatch last-gasp win over Wolves

    John Egan struck deep into injury time as Sheffield United defeated fellow European hopefuls Wolves 1-0 at a rain-sodden Bramall Lane.

    It looked like the game would finish goalless but Egan headed home Oliver Norwood’s corner following a sustained period of Blades pressure to give Chris Wilder’s side a crucial victory.

    The win moved the hosts above Arsenal into seventh place and just a point behind their opponents in the Premier League table, keeping their dreams of Europa League football next season alive and kicking.

    Meanwhile, successive defeats for Wolves have likely ended their hopes of making the Champions League, although Nuno Espirio Santo’s side could still qualify for the competition should they win the Europa League next month.

    Blades boss Wilder made two changes. The fit-again Jack O’Connell replaced Jack Robinson in defence while club captain Billy Sharp started up front as David McGoldrick missed out with a foot injury.

    Wolves made one change after the home defeat to Arsenal with Diogo Jota coming in for Leander Dendoncker.

    Both sides got their passing games going early on in what was a competitive opening, but equally the organisation of the two teams often meant that free-flowing football lacked a cutting edge around the penalty areas.

    When Wolves worked their way through the Blades defence after 14 minutes, Raul Jimenez’s touch on his chest was heavy as he tried to control Adama Traore’s cross and what would have been a clear shot on goal eight yards out was lost.

    Shortly afterwards, Oliver McBurnie got across the front of Conor Coady at the near post to meet O’Connell’s cross but his glancing header was straight at Rui Patricio.

    O’Connell cynically halted Jota’s drive towards goal after half an hour and received a yellow card for the foul. Ruben Neves fired the resulting free-kick goalwards but his effort clipped the top of the crossbar on its way over.

    Wolves had a couple of let-offs either side of half time when Willy Boly’s pass-back to Patricio was pounced upon by Sharp but his shot was blocked by the goalkeeper.

    Sharp was involved again early in the second half when he put the ball in the net, only to see his celebrations curtailed by an offside flag.

    It was the beginning of a sustained period of pressure for the Blades but Wolves, marshalled at the back by Coady, largely kept the hosts at arm’s length until Jonny switched off 12 minutes from time but, thankfully for him, George Baldock’s header went wide.

    Wolves endured a late barrage of pressure as the Blades went in search of a winning goal and their endeavour was rewarded in injury time when defender Egan, who scored a superb goal in the draw at Burnley at the weekend, rose highest to head home Norwood’s corner, sending Wilder leaping in joy down the touchline.
