Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine could be tempted to make changes for the home clash with Southampton.

The Owls crashed to a third successive league defeat last week at Plymouth and while Irvine has no new injury or suspension worries, the Scot hinted at introducing some new faces.

Midfielder Tommy Miller scored a stunning goal after stepping off the bench last week and could be recalled to the starting line-up, while Gary Teale could also return, with Chris Sedgwick and Giles Coke possibly making way.

Marcus Tudgay and Neil Mellor are expected to continue up front while winger Jermaine Johnson, yet to appear this season, remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury.

The Owls have dropped from top to 11th place in recent weeks and are desperate to avoid a fourth league defeat on the trot.

David Connolly is set to miss Southampton's trip to Hillsborough.

The veteran striker has been struggling with a stomach injury all week and is unlikely to be involved at Hillsborough.

Rickie Lambert and Lee Barnard will continue in attack as Saints look for their first goal in seven and a half hours.

Defender Aaron Martin has missed the last two games with a back problem but has trained this week and could return.

Midfielder Adam Lallana has begun light training but is still a couple of weeks away from a comeback after undergoing knee surgery earlier this month.

Full-back Frazer Richardson remains on the sidelines following a dislocated shoulder but he too has been pencilled in for a return in October.
