Purse, a free summer signing from Cardiff, did not make the bench in last week's 4-0 home defeat to West Brom but may even be recalled to the starting line-up as manager Brian Laws ponders his most effective back four.

Fellow central defender Mark Beevers, who started among the substitutes last week, could also return.

Laws could hand a first start to Tom Soares, who arrived on loan from Stoke in time to step off the bench against the Baggies, while Warren Feeney, on loan from Cardiff, is hoping to make his first appearance.

The Owls have no new injury or suspension problems but midfielder Tommy Miller (hamstring) and striker Francis Jeffers (ankle) are still out.
