Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Sky Bet Championship preview
Sheffield Wednesday host Brentford this evening with Steve Bruce hoping to extend his unbeaten start to life as boss – but how will the Owls get on? 


Fernando Forestieri will be available for selection as Sheffield Wednesday face Brentford at Hillsborough.






Forestieri was sent off in the South Yorkshire derby at Rotherham and served a one-match ban on Saturday as Wednesday defeated Swansea 3-1.


Manager Steve Bruce hopes to also have a trio of players back from injury. 


Morgan Fox (back), Jordan Thorniley (concussion) and George Boyd (illness) all missed the win over Swansea.


Brentford boss Thomas Frank hopes to have Marcus Forss and Luke Daniels available for the trip. 


Forss suffered a setback with his back injury and missed the 5-1 win over Hull on Saturday.


However, Frank revealed that a scan on the problem was encouraging and the forward could return to action soon. 


Goalkeeper Daniels had a minor calf injury and could make a swift return to the squad.


Wednesday powered past Swansea City on Saturday afternoon to extend their unbeaten run to five games, courtesy of an Adam Reach brace and an overhead kick from Steven Fletcher.

Team News of Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford


Sheffield Wednesday forward Fernando Forestieri is available after missing the 3-1 victory over Swansea on Saturday through suspension.


George Boyd (illness), Morgan Fox (back) and Jordan Thorniley (head) could return but Sam Winnall, Gary Hooper and Kieran Lee remain sidelined.


Ezri Konsa may be back in the Brentford defence after serving a one-match ban.


Marcus Forss (back) and Luke Daniels (calf) may travel but Rico Henry, Lewis Macleod and Emiliano Marcondes are out.


Moving up in the table is dependant on Hull City’s result, though, who host Millwall at the KCOM Stadium at the same time tonight, where they have been forecast to win 2-0. 


Wednesday’s Steel City rivals Sheffield United are predicted to drop out of the top two with Leeds United predicted to draw 1-1 at Queens Park Rangers. 


Meanwhile, Birmingham City’s playoffs hopes are expected to take a blow with a 1-0 defeat at Bristol City.
