Forestieri misses out as Wednesday take on Brentford

Fernando Forestieri will be unavailable for Sheffield Wednesday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Brentford.

The forward sustained a knee injury in last weekend’s 3-1 win at Charlton on his first start under Owls boss Garry Monk, with Jacob Murphy and Adam Reach pushing to replace him.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood remains sidelined because of a shoulder problem, but defender Julian Borner returns to contention following a one-game suspension.

Owls right-back Liam Palmer will sit out as he completes a three-match ban following his red card at West Brom last month.

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank is unlikely to make any changes following the 7-0 win over Luton last time out.

Winger Sergi Canos is closing in on a first-team return following a knee injury but is unlikely to feature at Hillsborough.

Frank will definitely be without Nikos Karelis who also has a knee injury.

The forward is set to be sidelined for a number of months.
