MICHAEL Morrison has highlighted the threat posed to Wednesday by Charlton front two Yann Kermorgant and Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Kermorgant is the less well known of the two. He is a 6ft, French, 31-year-old centre forward who was allowed to leave Leicester in the summer.

“Yann is a big handful,” said Morrison. ”I don’t think too many people know about him.

“He didn’t really get a good chance at Leicester; he’s come here and improved. His confidence has come on.

“He can cause all sorts of trouble on the deck and in the air, and he’s very strong, He does give us a different dimension.”

Kermorgant has scored seven goals, Wright-Phillips has 14 but has not netted for eight games. “Bradley hasn’t scored for quite a while; we’ve been scoring from other positions,” says Morrison.

“He’s due one; he’ll be trying to get one at the weekend.”

The defender added: “All the lads here are expecting a really good atmosphere; there’s good talk around the place about the game; it should be a good one.”

Former Owls striker Leon Clarke, who was signed from Swindon this month, could be on the bench.

Clarke scored at Hillsborough this season while on loan with Chesterfield.
