Jos Luhukay admits he is scared about Barry Bannan’s latest injury

Sheffield Wednesday managed to keep their great run of form going on Sunday with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The victory lifted the Owls into a Championship playoff spot and leaves them just six points off of leaders and arch-rivals Sheffield United.

However, Jos Luhukay has admitted that the win did not come without some potentially negative news that has scared him a little.

The Hillsborough outfit had to withdraw Barry Bannan ten minutes from the end of the game with an apparent groin injury, one that they are fearful could have the same impact as last season’s.

The Scotland international missed a large amount of the campaign with the problem and Luhukay is hoping his star man’s latest concern is not too serious.

Speaking to the Sheffield Star, he said: “With Barry, I’m a little bit scared that it is the groin injury he had last season before I came to the club.

“He said to me (at the end) it is the same feeling but I hope it is only a little bit of a warning and that he can maybe train back in the next week and be 100 per cent for Middlesbrough.”

The Verdict:

Everybody associated with Sheffield Wednesday will be anxiously awaiting the outcome of Bannan’s latest injury.

The Scottish midfielder has been largely influential during his time with the Yorkshire outfit and Luhukay himself admitted the player was deeply missed against West Bromwich Albion, a game in which he was suspended for.

The Owls have not had the best of times when it comes to injuries, however, they will have their fingers crossed that Bannan’s is not too serious.
