Sheffield Wednesday are sweating on the fitness of Fernando Forestieri after the forward sustained another injury.

Forestieri hobbled off during the Owls’ sorry 4-2 loss at Blackburn in the closing stages.

Manager Jos Luhukay said afterwards that the injury is a reoccurence of a hamstring problem - something that kept the Argentine out for over a month earlier this season. 

Forestieri had come on as a half-time substitute against Rovers and Luhukay hopes the injury is not as serious as before. 

Luhukay said: “Yet again he has a problem with his hamstring. 

“He will go for a scan Tuesday or Wednesday. 

“We hope not again that he will be (out) for six, seven or eight weeks.”

Forestieri has scored three in 13 games this season.
