Sheffield Wednesday face injury concerns

Sheffield Wednesday face injury concerns - Championship

Sheffield Wednesday now find themselves with nothing to really play for from here on in, but they did almost managed to secure a shock result against Norwich City recently. 

The Owls will be desperate to give fans the results they’re craving with the season coming to a close, but it won’t be easy as they’re set to welcome Bristol City to Hillsborough today.

What’s the News?

It looks as if a couple of Sheffield Wednesday players could be missing today, as according to BBC Sport’s pre-match team news, Steve Bruce faces a number of injury concerns.

Keiren Westwood (knee) was injured in the warm-up before Friday’s match at Norwich, while Sam Hutchinson (hamstring) was taken off early on.

So, Owls fans face an anxious wait ahead of kick-off to see what kind of side Bruce is able to field.

The Verdict:

Kieren Westwood has been influential at times in-between the sticks this season, including against Leeds United at Elland Road recently, so he could be a big miss in today’s game.

Meanwhile, Hutchinson has constantly kept things tight in the middle of midfield and plays a key part in stopping the opposition in their tracks, so operating without him could be costly with Bristol’s dangerous attack.

Nevertheless, Bruce may look to give a couple of youngsters a chance with the club’s play-off hopes vanishing.
