Owls wait on Thorniley ahead of Villa trip

Young defender Jordan Thorniley will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s trip to Villa after suffering a late injury at Forest.

Jos Luhukay said after the 2-1 defeat: “I thought Jordan was our best player on the pitch tonight. So, it was unfortunate that he had to come off, it looks like it is his calf that has caused the problem.

“We will assess him over the next couple of days and then make a decision about Saturday’s game.”
