Team news: Michael Turner is in squad but not expected to start after only having two training sessions with the Owls. Kieren Westwood is still out, meaning Lewis Price retains place in goal. Want-away Albert Adomah unlikely to play for Boro.

Last six games: Sheffield Wednesday WWLDDW, Middlesbrough DWWDLW.

Referee: M Heywood (Cheshire).

Key men: Wednesday’s Tom Lees will need to keep Boro’s £4m striker David Nugent quiet if the Owls are to repeat last year’s triumph over Aitor Karanka’s visitors.

Last time: Sheffield Wednesday 2 Middlesbrough 0; February 28, 2015; Championship: Boro’s promotion hopes were dealt a damaging blow as the Owls claimed one of just five home wins in 2014-15.

Talking point: Boro finished four points adrift of the top two last term – meaning the double Wednesday claimed against the Teesside club proved very costly. Can Boro take revenge?
