Key figure returns for Sheffield Wednesday and a big player gets booted up again

Sheffield Wednesday may be without their manager, Darren Moore, as he recovers from COVID-19-related pneumonia, but they have at least welcomed somebody back to training this week.

Paul Williams had been forced into a 10-day isolation after he too tested positive for Coronavirus earlier this month, and after Moore said he was on the mend a few days ago, he has now got back to work at Middlewood Road.

Williams, as first team coach, will join assistant manager, Jamie Smith, in leading the team out tomorrow afternoon against Bristol City, and it will be a boost for everybody to at least have another member of Moore’s technical team back in the equation.

Meanwhile, the club released a video today that saw towering defender, Chey Dunkley, back in his boots on the grass during today’s training session with the team, but you would think that his return comes a bit too late to put him back in contention for the Bristol clash.

Both Joost van Aken and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru have got a bit of U23s football under their belt and could also return to first team action this weekend if called upon, however it remains to be seen if either of them will feature in the plans to go up against Nigel Pearson’s Robins.

Moore said during his previous absence that he was in constant conversation with his technical team and players despite not being at the training ground, and he’ll no doubt be trying to have as much communication as possible in the coming weeks as he looks to make a full recovery.
