Sheffield Wed vs West Brom - Suspended Bannan to miss out for Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday will be without the suspended Barry Bannan for their Championship clash with leaders West Brom.

The midfielder has already collected five yellow cards this season and must serve a one-match ban. Marco Matias (hamstring) will be sidelined for a couple of weeks while defender Daniel Pudil has a broken nose but could play.

Ash Baker picked up a leg injury during the second half of last Friday’s draw with Leeds and has not yet been ruled out but midfielder Kieran Lee (knee) and defender Joost van Aken (ankle) are still weeks away from a return.

Striker Sam Winnall, who suffered a calf injury as he worked his way back from cruciate ligament damage, could return to full training on Monday but long-term absentee Gary Hooper (groin) must undergo more checks.

Former Wolves winger Bakary Sako could make his West Brom debut after signing a contract until the end of the season on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old left Crystal Palace at the end of last season and had been without a club but impressed Baggies boss Darren Moore during a two-week trial.

In-form wideman Matt Phillips will be assessed after missing the victory over Preston with a muscle strain and may not be risked, with Moore keen to be cautious. If Phillips does not make it then Tyrone Mears is likely to deputise again.

Striker Dwight Gayle was substituted late on on Saturday as a precaution after picking up a knock but should be available.
