Sheffield Wednesday news LIVE: Has Kieran Lee finally found a new club after his Owls exit?
Hello and welcome to our LIVE Sheffield Wednesday blog.
Well, it’s fair to say it never rains but it pours for the Owls at the moment.
Saturday’s defeat to South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley was bad enough but salt was rubbed into the wounds when it emerged post-match that instrumental Dominic Iorfa is set to miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured achilles tendon.
It’s a devastating blow for Tony Pulis and his rock-bottom Wednesday side, but there’s no time to feel for themselves amid a relentless schedule of fixtures with Christmas around the corner.
Next up are fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest at the City Ground tomorrow evening, so make sure you stay with us throughout the day for the latest developments from S6 ahead of the huge six-pointer Trentside.
