Fernando Forestieri poised to return for Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri will be back in contention for the home game against Derby.

Forestieri has been sidelined since early October due to a hamstring injury, but is expected to be included in Jos Luhukay’s squad.

Forward Marco Matias is also available. He stepped off the bench in the goalless derby draw with Sheffield United before the international break following his own hamstring problem.

Striker Steven Fletcher will be assessed after featuring in both Scotland’s games last week, while Josh Onomah returned from England Under-21s duty unscathed.

Derby will be without both Craig Forsyth and Mason Bennett after they sustained long-term injuries in the recent home defeat to Aston Villa.

Scotland left-back Forsyth damaged his left anterior cruciate ligament and forward Bennett sustained a hamstring injury.

Boss Frank Lampard will assess Mason Mount (ankle), Martyn Waghorn (hamstring) and Craig Bryson (calf) after they all missed the defeat to Villa.

Summer signing George Evans remains unavailable, but is closing in on his return after a long-term hip problem.
