Sheffield Wednesday’s trip to Newcastle will expect to see Fernando Forestieri return to the starting XI after serving a three-match suspension.

The Owls’ number 45 missed an away day to Reading earlier this month, plus two home South Yorkshire derby clashes against Barnsley and Rotherham United.

Regarded as the Owls’ most influential player, when on form, the little Argentine notched three goals in three games before being sent off in a home win against Preston North End.

The 5ft 7in forward has scored six goals in thirteen starts this season.

With two assists and two man of the match awards this term also, Forestieri gives the Wednesday faithful enough hope and encouragement that they can snatch all three points at St James’ Park.
