PremierLeague-News.Com - Our Sheffield Wednesday reporter Dom Howson has selected the team he believes Owls manager Darren Moore could pick ahead of tomorrow's encounter with Mansfield Town
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Sheffield Wednesday's FA Cup journey continues tomorrow when they welcome Mansfield Town to Hillsborough. All eyes will be on the team Darren Moore selects for the second round tie. Will the Owls boss go full strength? Or could Moore give some fringe players an opportunity to stake a claim? Speaking at his pre-match press briefing, Moore hinted a number of academy players could be included in the matchday squad. Pierce Charles, David Agbontohoma, Rio Shipston and Bailey Cadamarteri may all come into Moore's thoughts as Wednesday chase a third successive win.

"The youth team is doing really well as we have seen with their progression in the FA Youth Cup. "There are one or two academy prospects in there that are doing really well individually and are rapidly developing." The chances are Moore will make wholesale changes from the side who edged past Shrewsbury Town last time out. Cameron Dawson is expected to get the nod in goal, with Jack Hunt and Marvin Johnson in line for recalls in the wing back positions. Liam Palmer has not started a match since October 29 so Moore may view the Mansfield clash as the perfect opportunity for Palmer to get minutes under his belt. It will be fascinating to see if Moore decides to rest Barry Bannan. The Owls skipper has been one of their standout performers this term. There is a possibility Will Vaulks, Tyreeq Bakinson and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru could make up the midfield three, with Bannan on the bench.

. As for up front, Mallik Wilks will be hoping to feature from the start. There is place up for grabs in attack as Josh Windass is sidelined by injury. Moore may opt to freshen things up and play Wilks and Lee Gregory together as his front two. "It doesn't surprise me to see Mansfield competing in the higher echelons of League Two," he said. "I watched them a few times last season when Cameron Dawson was on loan at Exeter. I went down to Exeter and saw a couple of games down there. "They are a club on the up and he (Nigel Clough, Mansfield boss) has brought some real solidity there. He has got a good group of players there that have played at a higher level. They won't be fazed by the environment tomorrow." Wednesday predicted team v Mansfield (3-5-2): Dawson; McGuinness, Ihiekwe, Palmer; Hunt, Vaulks, Bakinson, Dele-Bashiru, Johnson; Wilks, Gregory.
