Inigo Calderon will lead Albion into the cauldron of Hillsborough as their third captain in as many matches.

The Spanish defender skippers the team for only the second time at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Calderon was given the armband on the opening day of the season at Swindon, when Gordon Greer was suspended against his old club.

Tommy Elphick took over for the Carling Cup tie at Northampton last week, with Calderon among several players rested.

Now the rightback is back in charge again after Greer’s red card on his debut against Rochdale at Withdean last Saturday.

Calderon will remain as captain for the home games against Walsall on August 28 and, selection permitting, Leyton Orient in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on September 1.

Adam El-Abd will be reunited in the centre of defence with Elphick at Hillsborough, unless boss Gus Poyet signs a deputy for Greer before Saturday.

Former Ipswich midfielder Tommy Miller could be back in contention for the Owls for his first appearance of the season after recovering from a hamstring injury.
