31-y/o out: The Sheffield Wednesday XI that Bruce should field v Millwall tomorrow



Steve Bruce puts his unbeaten start to life at Sheffield Wednesday on the line tomorrow evening when his side travels to London to take on Millwall.

The Owls are nine points above their hosts on Tuesday evening looking to make it four games unbeaten and three under the new manager.

Wednesday saw off Ipswich in his first game, before stuttering to a goalless draw at home to relegation-threatened Reading this past weekend.

It will be a tough test for the Owls at the home of the Lions, and will be in for a battle of Bruce is to maintain his side’s current unbeaten run.

A win at The Den could move Wednesday within eight points of the play-offs.

And Bruce will be doing all he can to name a team he considers suited well enough to take on Millwall tomorrow evening.

With that said, this is the XI that the Wednesday boss should name if he wants to secure all three points on the road on Tuesday night.

Keiren Westwood should remain in goal after finding favour side the departure of Jos Luhukay.

Bruce will be hoping to improve the continuity of this team heading into the final few months of the campaign, and the back four should remain unchanged from the weekend’s draw.

Morgan Fox, Jordan Thorniley, Michael Hector and Liam Palmer will be occupying the places across the backline for the Owls with Tom Lees remaining doubtful.

The second bank of four ahead of them in the 4-2-3-1 system will consist of George Boyd, Barry Bannan, Sam Hutchinson and mercurial attacker Adam Reach.

Hutchinson and Bannan will be the deeper two in the midfield area with Fernando Forestieri in the middle of Boyd and Reach, who will be either side of him.

Atdhe Nuhiu will operate in the lone striker role with plenty of support for him in the formation Bruce last used on the road, as opposed to the 4-4-2 system he played at Hillsborough last weekend.
