Tykes duo set to miss Owls opener

De Silva has been struggling with a hamstring strain and Colace has been nursing a calf injury so both are likely to miss the short trip to Sheffield. Summer signing from York Onome Sodje, nephew of injured Wednesday striker Akpo, could be included in the squad and Luke Steele will start in goal following the return home of German goalkeeper Heinz Muller. Striker Iain Hume is likely to be included on the substitutes' bench as he works his way back to full match fitness after a six-month lay-off due to the fractured skull he sustained in November. Kayode Odejayi's rich goalscoring form during pre-season could have earned him a start alongside either Jon Macken or Daniel Bogdanovic up front, while central defender Darren Moore has recently proved his fitness.
