Midfielder gets a rare start

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Fisayo Dele-Bashiru has been included in Sheffield Wednesday’s starting eleven for this afternoon’s match at AFC Wimbledon. The former Manchester City youngster comes into what looks like it could be a 3-5-2 formation. The Owls are without injured holding midfielders Sam Hutchinson and Massimo Luongo and Dennis Adeniran is also out of the match-day squad today.

Lewis Gibson started last weekend but is injured and is replaced by Chey Dunkley, as he has during the game against Bolton last time out. Saido Berahino drops to the bench with Lewis Wing coming back into the side and Joe Wildsmith keeps his place in goal despite Bailey Peaccock-Farrell’s return from international duty.

Wimbledon are without a win in four league games, three of which have ended in defeat.
