Former Sheffield Wednesday loanee, Aiden McGeady, will not be there to face his former club when his current employers, Sunderland, visit Hillsborough this week.

McGeady, who is now 35, has already directly contributed to six goals for the Black Cats so far this season, but his red card in the 5-1 drubbing against Rotherham United over the weekend means that he’s suspended for Tuesday night’s game.

The left winger played 13 game for the Owls during a loan spell back in 2016, but struggled to make a real impact under Carlos Carvalhal as he managed just one goal contribution during his stay in Sheffield.

But while his spell for Wednesday wasn’t successful, McGeady has become a real threat in League One, scoring 21 goals and getting 27 assists at this level since the start of the 2018/19 season – and his absence gives Darren Moore one less thing to think about.

Sunderland’s winger was shown a second yellow for a reckless challenge in the second half of the defeat to Rotherham, meaning that Lee Johnson will once again have to reshuffle his pack on Tuesday night.
