Sheffield Wednesday defender Mark Beevers could be a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up against Bournemouth.

Beevers was expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks with ankle ligament damage but returns to contention way ahead of schedule after missing just two matches.

It is a timely return for Beevers as fellow defender Jon Otsemobor sits out the first game of a three-match ban following his straight red card in last weekend's win at Yeovil.

Owls manager Alan Irvine could also be boosted by the return of midfielder Giles Coke, who has been struggling with a hamstring strain, while winger Jermaine Johnson, who scored 10 minutes after stepping off the bench in the second half at Yeovil, is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up as he gets back to full fitness following a long-term knee injury.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has striking problems ahead of his side's trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

Michael Symes and Josh McQuoid have both missed training this week with shoulder and calf problems but Howe will have to monitor their progress before naming them in the squad.

If both strikers fail fitness tests then veteran Steven Fletcher will start his first League One game for more than three years in a lone striker role.

Adam Smith, who is set to extend his loan spell with the Cherries before the trip to Hillsborough, will continue in defence, with Lee Bradbury occupying the bench again while Harry Arter has trained this week after a spell on the sidelines with a hernia injury and could be in contention for a place among the substitutes.
