Sheffield Wed. vs Derby County - Kieran Lee could make Sheffield Wednesday comeback against Derby

Posted Friday, April 21, 2017 by PA

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Kieran Lee could return to the squad for the home game against Derby.

Lee, sidelined for over three months after having surgery to resolve a hip problem in January, returned to full training this week and may feature.

Striker Fernando Forestieri will be assessed after being restricted to the bench in the last two matches due to an on-going knee problem.

Midfielder Sam Hutchinson is making good progress in his recovery from a calf injury, but will not be involved as the Owls continue their bid for a top-six finish.

Derby will hope to have David Nugent back from injury.

The striker suffered a groin strain at Brentford on Good Friday and missed Monday's clash with Huddersfield.

Midfielders Craig Bryson and Jacob Butterfield and winger Johnny Russell are pushing for recalls after being dropped to the bench for the Terriers match.

Jason Shackell (back), Nick Blackman (knee), Craig Forsyth (knee) and George Thorne (leg) remain long-term absentees for the Rams.
