Sheffield Wednesday will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run to five matches when they make the trip to face Nottingham Forest this afternoon.
Garry Monk’s side have climbed up to eighth in the Championship following their strong run of form, and the Owls could even break into the play-off zone if they manage to overcome the Reds at the City Ground.
The Wednesday boss has made two changes to his side following their 1-1 draw with Derby during the week as Liam Palmer and Massimo Luongo replace suspended duo Moses Odubajo and Sam Hutchinson in the starting line-up.
Monk has also named centre-back Julian Borner among the substitutes for the third consecutive match, with Tom Lees having kept his spot after returning to the heart of defence in recent matches.
Wednesday took to Twitter to share their team news ahead of the Forest clash:

Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans reacted to this line-up announcement with plenty of positivity, while others took the opportunity to urge Monk to re-include Borner in the side following his recent exclusion.

Borner is better than Lees. What a waste of talent on the bench
