Fernando Forestieri has missed out on Sheffield Wednesday's trip to Aston Villa this afternoon.

The change is just one from manager Carlos Carvalhal following the 1-1 draw with Burton Albion on Tuesday night, with Adam Reach coming in for Forestieri in the middle of the field.

Jonathan Kodjia continues at the front of a 4-1-4-1 formation, with Conor Hourihane, Jordan Amavi, Henri Lansbury and Albert Adomah in midfield and Mile Jedinak just in front of the back four.
