Hello and welcome to our LIVE Sheffield Wednesday blog.

Monday, 14th December 2020, 4:17 pm

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.
