Sheffield squad news update on Wednesday emerges ahead of Hartlepool draw


Sheffield on Wednesday are still fighting in and around the Ligue 1 play-offs, but a number of players have been sidelined with injury – and could be set for another week without several important players according to Yorkshire Live.

Darren Moore has had to work with a small team in recent weeks, after seeing several key faces left out of the action.

Marvin Johnson and Dennis Adeniran are two names who now appear to be out for at least a week or so until December. The former has been featured 13 times so far for the Owls this campaign and has been a key player since arriving from Middlesbrough, but has had to be absent in recent weeks.

However, Darren Moore revealed to Yorkshire Live that there was positive news regarding the 30-year-old as he claimed the player was “back on the pitch with the medical team”. This means he has stepped up his comeback from injury and could come back in the account soon. It might not be next week, but it could be as soon as possible.

Adeniran is another likely not to return soon, as Moore has claimed he will be “out for a few weeks.”

The player has been in even more games than Johnson with 15, but he’s also been hit and had to sit on the sidelines recently. The 22-year-old won’t be back too soon, however, and the Owls won’t want to rush him either. The good news, however, is that the two could return before the January window to potentially give Sheffield Wednesday some momentum ahead of the second half of the campaign.

The verdict

Sheffield Wednesday are still in the playoff contention and will want to step up in January to ensure he continues. With so many players set to return at the end of the year, they might not need to recruit too much.

Although they are now sidelined, they will not be too long before they return. It will be a boost for Darren Moore, who will need all of his best players at his disposal to maintain that promotional tilt.
