Gary Hooper could answer Owls' call

Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper could return to contention for the home game against Norwich.

Hooper has been sidelined since mid-November due to a thigh injury, but is hoping to be given the all-clear after a scan and be included in head coach Carlos Carvalhal's plans.

Tom Lees (knee) is still not ready to feature after missing the last six matches, while fellow defender Morgan Fox could be doubtful. He was replaced at half-time in last week's defeat at Leeds after returning from an ankle injury.

Winger Callum McManaman, plus strikers Sam Winnall and Steven Fletcher, are among those pushing for recalls.

Norwich could have midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu back in contention following a thigh problem.

Scotland forward Steven Naismith returned to the starting XI for the 1-1 draw with East Anglian rivals Ipswich last weekend after a hamstring injury, so could retain his place in attack.

Striker Nelson Oliveira is sidelined by a broken foot and midfielder Graham Dorrans by a knee problem, while winger Matt Jarvis has been recovering from a hamstring strain.

Midfielder Louis Thompson is a long-term absentee after undergoing Achilles surgery in January.
