Steve Bruce and Sheffield Wednesday have been dealt a frustrating injury blow as they look to climb the Championship table.
The Owls’ boss has confirmed to The Sheffield Star that Josh Onomah has picked up a hamstring strain and will miss around ‘three to four weeks’ of action.
The Tottenham Hotspur youngster, who is currently on loan at the Hillsborough outfit, has had a stop-start season and this is just the latest of his problems.
He came on as a second-half substitute in the game against Ipswich Town at the weekend, making his first appearance since Boxing Day after a different hamstring problem, but picked up his latest knock in the final moments at Portman Road.
“Josh unfortunately strained his hamstring in the last minute of the Ipswich game,” Bruce said.
“I would certainly say he will be out for three to four weeks at least.
“It is a blow for the kid. When you are just over a hamstring injury and you nick the other one, there is nothing worse as a footballer.”
Onomah’s latest setback will come as frustrating news to Sheffield Wednesday and Bruce, as the manager knows how good the player can be when fit.
The pair were together at Aston Villa last season and had played well, however, he has only been able to make 12 Championship appearances so far for The Owls because of injuries and form.
The 21-year-old will also have been frustrated by how things have gone and will no doubt be looking to come back stronger and make a solid impression once he is fit and available to do so.
