ANOTHER red card for Sheffield Wednesday.. how many games could key man miss?

The start of the Tony Pulis era at Sheffield Wednesday has been dealt an early blow in the form of a red card to one of his key men.

Saturday, 21st November 2020, 3:32 pm

Josh Windass was given his marching orders just 17 minutes into the Owls match with Preston North End for a high, late challenge on Joseph Rafferty.

Incredibly, he is now the fourth Wednesday player to have been shown a red card in their 13 league matches after Joost van Aken against Luton, Tom Lees at Rotherham and Kadeem Harris at home to Bournemouth.

As it stands, Windass will miss the Owls’ next three matches at Swansea and at home to Stoke and Reading, though the club have the option of appealing the decision.

He had been playing as a lone striker after Pulis named his first Wednesday side, a 4-5-1 that featured the return of Keiren Westwood in goal.
