Tony Mowbray has made three changes to his lineup for today's game against Sheffield Wednesday at Ewood Park.

Coming into the side are Paul Downing, Derrick Williams and Craig Conway, with Jack Rodwell, Amari'i Bell and Adam Armstrong dropping out of the starting XI.

Rodwell (head injury) and Bell are out of the squad altogether, but Armstrong is available from the bench if needed against the Owls.

Downing makes his second league start of the season and his 300th club career appearance, whilst Conway makes league start number three of the campaign.

Elliott Bennett is not in the squad due to a foot injury, but one player who is, Danny Graham, makes his 100th league start for the club.

For the visitors, former loan Rover Lucas Joao will be in attack, and is likely to be partnered up top by the experienced Scotland international Steven Fletcher.
