Kavanagh to miss Owls' crunch match

GRAHAM Kavanagh will miss the Owls' big match against Coventry on Tuesday.

The midfielder is nursing a hamstring strain after going off early in the draw with Charlton.

But the injury is not serious and it is hoped he will be fit for the Hillsborough clash with Cardiff a week tomorrow, said manager Brian Laws.

It is blow to lose the influential loan signing from Sunderland, for a game where they will be using up their match in hand on many of the teams around them

But it looks set to mean another chance for Ronnie Wallwork, who took over from Kavanagh during the Charlton game after losing his place to new signing Adam Bolder and played reasonably well against the Addicks.

Third-from-bottom Wednesday will tonight look to Glenn Whelan and Stoke to do them a favour by beating basement club Scunthorpe.

Many Championship teams, including the Owls, are without games tomorrow because of the FA Cup fifth round, but next-to-bottom Colchester are away to Hull, and fifth-from bottom Leicester will play Norwich at home.

Coventry, who face West Brom in the Cup, say they have had many applications for the job left vacant by Iain Dowie's sacking. John Harbin and Frankie Bunn are in temporary charge.
