Team news: Sheffield Wednesday v Rovers

Two changes for Rovers at Hillsborough, with starts for Rothwell and Evans

16 March 2019

Tony Mowbray has made two changes to his starting lineup for today's clash against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

There are starts for Joe Rothwell and Corry Evans in the Steel City, with Amari'i Bell and Adam Armstrong missing out.

Bell's omission is due to injury, limping off against Wigan Athletic in midweek, whilst Armstrong is available as a substitute.

Also on the bench is young starlet John Buckley, who is named in the matchday squad for the first time, after appearing for 80 minutes for the Under-23s last night.

Tyler Magloire continues in the backline, and is expected to be part of a back three, with Ryan Nyambe and Derrick Williams either side of the youngster.

Hosts Sheffield Wednesday include Adam Reach in their starting XI. The midfielder played under Mowbray during the boss' time at Middlesbrough.

Sam Winnall partners Steven Fletcher as Steve Bruce goes for two up front.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.
