Connor Wickham and Matty Fryatt forming a new strike partnership for the Owls?

That prospect would have given Wednesday fans a lift at any time during the more troubled times of this season.

Now that both players have actually been signed it is a coup for the club and a shot in the arm for a team who have struggled to score enough goals.

Wednesday have also covered themselves just in case they are unable to get their wish of keeping Fryatt until January.

The news that Wickham is booked in until that month came after Hull refused Jones’ request to extend the Fryatt deal to three months, so he could be gone at the end of November, but it is hoped that the Tigers will reconsider at that time.
