Sam Hutchinson in frame for Sheffield Wednesday return despite recent workload

Sam Hutchinson is available to play a third game in a week for Sheffield Wednesday at home to Oxford United on Saturday - but Darren Moore will make his players wait until the morning before naming his team.

Hutchinson, who played in midfield at Wigan Athletic on Tuesday is now 32 and has made eight starts already in all competitions this season, but Moore says he is fit and ready.

"He’s fine, he trained today, but what I like to do is let them come in tomorrow and I’ll give it until the last minute before making a decision," he said on Friday afternoon.

Yet to make his Owls debut, centre-back Lewis Gibson is back in training and midfielder George Byers is also on the mend, but will not be rushed into a return against Karl Robinson's Us.

"Lewis trained as normal, George is out doing his running. George won’t be ready, but we’ll have a look at him for next week," said Moore. "It’s been a strain, an ongoing groin strain - you keep getting close, it’s nothing overly concerning, but he just needs time to let it settle down. Now he’s building it up."
