The duo are amongst a number of injury concerns that Moore is currently dealing with as the likes of Keiren Westwood, Cameron Dawson, Joost van Aken, Moses Odubajo, Chey Dunkley and Jack Marriott target a return to action, though it remains to be seen how things will look for the trip to Vicarage Road.

Van Aken, who will see his contract expire in June, was also back out on the training ground earlier this month as he aims to try and finish the season – and potentially his Wednesday career – on a high, and the break could be seen as an opportunity for many of the injured players.

Moore has made it clear that his arrival signalled a clean slate for everybody, and if players can step up ahead of April 2nd, then they may have a chance of forcing their way into his plans.

The Owls face Watford on Good Friday as they look to pick up back-to-back wins for the first time since Moore’s arrival.
