Kieran Lee made his first appearance in a Wednesday shirt since last September when he started for the under-23s in their 1-0 win over Watford at Middlewood Road on Monday afternoon. Injuries have ruled the midfielder out of the first team since December 2017 but he is now back in full training and, as planned, […]
Wednesday could be without Barry Bannan and Dominic Iorfa for Tuesday evening’s home clash with Forest. Iorfa was forced off with a thigh problem during the first-half against Villa on Saturday and Bannan was subbed in the closing minutes after suffering a hamstring injury.

Steven Fletcher looks set to return to the matchday squad for Saturday’s home clash with Aston Villa. Fletcher missed last Saturday’s trip to Stoke with a groin injury sustained against Blackburn before the international break but Steve Bruce says the striker has been training this week and should be fit for selection. Rolando Aarons is […]
Steve Bruce believes Wednesday have reached ‘must-win’ time in our remaining seven games to have a chance of grabbing a play-off place. With home games against play-off chasing pair Villa and then Forest on Tuesday evening, followed by a trip to second-placed Leeds next Saturday, Bruce has highlighted the significance of the next seven days […]
