Owls unchanged for Boxing Day game

Fletcher still unavailable
 
Sheffield Wednesday go to struggling Stoke City on Boxing Day and Garry Monk will field the same starting 11 that played in the 1-0 home win against Bristol City last weekend.
 
The Owls were the better side against the Robins but didn't look like finding a breakthrough until Barry Bannan converted a late penalty. Steven Fletcher remains absent due to illness and it will be interesting to see if Jordan Rhodes and Atdhe Nuhiu can get the job done in front of goal.
 
Morgan Fox is fit to start at left-back despite having to be substituted in the Bristol game with a head injury. 
 
Wednesday kick off the festive period in 3rd place in the Championship table while Stoke are bottom of the table, though a win could see them climb out of the relegation zone.
