Gary Megson will have a welcome selection headache for this weekend’s Steel City derby with the return to availability of three first team players.

Reda Johnson and Liam Palmer will both be available after missing last weekend’s win over Chesterfield with being away on international duty with Benin and Scotland U21s respectively.

Midfielder David Prutton will also return to training this week just in time for the first Sheffield derby clash of the campaign at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

Former Leeds United and Nottingham Forest man Prutton has missed the Owls’ last three games through a thigh injury after being an ever-present in the league up until his training injury.

But with Wednesday winning all three matches since his injury, with Chris Lines coming into the centre of midfield, Prutton may be lucky to regain his starting role in S2.
