Steven Fletcher eyeing start as Sheffield Wednesday take on Charlton

Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher could be in line for his first league start of 2020 when the Owls host Charlton.

The 32-year-old has been out with a knee injury but returned as a substitute during the 3-3 draw at Birmingham on Saturday.

Morgan Fox also ended his four-match injury absence from the bench at St Andrew’s and the defender could be pushing for a recall too.

Midfielder Massimo Luongo is nearing a comeback from injury, although he remains a doubt ahead of Wednesday night’s fixture.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer might name an unchanged team after winning at home against Luton at the weekend.

Bowyer has increasingly-limited options following the injuries to midfielders Darren Pratley (back) and Jonny Williams (ankle).

Sam Field, Lewis Page and Jonathan Leko are also sidelined for the Addicks, who are looking for back-to-back Championship victories for the first time since August.

Macauley Bonne is fit again but has yet to break into the starting line up since returning from a hamstring injury this month.
