Five forgotten Owls who should be given run-outs against Wolves

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday can only finish sixth in the Championship, whatever happens.

5) Jeremy Helan

Last league start (for the Owls): 28/12/2015 v Middlesbrough (a)

Daniel Pudil has ran himself into the ground in recent weeks and with no Joe Bennett for cover, Wednesday were forced to recall Helan - ironically from Wolves. And the Frenchman, who may be keen to impress his former loan employers ahead of a possible permanent move, could come into side while Pudil puts his feet up for Friday.

4) Vincent Sasso

Last league start: 23/02/2016 v Queens Park Rangers (h)

It's been over a month since Sasso's last appearance for the first team, and with Glenn Loovens prone to niggling injuries it would be wise of the Owls to add their captain to the list of cotton wool-wrapped stars for Saturday. For the Frenchman, whose loan from Braga expires this summer, this could be his last chance to impress.

3) Marco Matias

Last league start: 08/03/2016 v Brighton (a)

Big things were expected of the Portuguese this season but the singing of Fernando Forestieri, combined with Matias' ill-timed absence through injury, has seen him play a bit-part role in 2016. Flashes of brilliance - notably his wonder strike at Elland Road - suggest the 26-year-old can still be of use to Wednesday. A run-out against Wolves could be his spring-board to glory. 

2) Aiden McGeady

Last start: 23/04/2016 v Derby (a)

OK, so he's not exactly forgotten, but he was left out entirely as the Owls secured their play-off place against Cardiff City at Hillsborough. The continued absence of Ross Wallace, along with Carlos Carvalhal's plan to rest Forestieri, opens the door to a return for the Republic of Ireland international, who is due a performance. That said, there's no question that his displays are far better on the road.

1) Jose Semedo

Last league start: 28/12/2016 v Middlesbrough (a)

Deep down we're all suckers for sentiment, and few Owls fans could live with themselves if Semedo was ushered through the back door this summer without a proper goodbye. The out-of-contract midfielder was key to the club's promotion from League One four years ago, winning player of the year and capturing hearts in the process. The upper reaches of the Championship have arguably proved a bridge too far for the 31-year-old, but with nothing to play for at Molineux, Semedo's inclusion would allow one of Wednesday's midfielders a much-needed rest.
