Wednesday wait on Windass injury update

Wednesday will await a medical update on Josh Windass after the striker was forced off in the friendly at West Brom today.

Windass, who had already twice gone close for Wednesday, pulled up just before half time and was immediately replaced.

Darren Moore said of the injury: “At the moment it’s too early but it’s put a bit of a dampener on the day for me really in terms of what we wanted from it. We wanted the players to feel stretched but what we didn’t want was to lose a player.

“The perfect pre-season is coming through the volume, coming through the minutes and high intensity in the games and getting no injuries. Unfortunately, today we have suffered an injury but to what extent, I’m not sure until speaking with the medical team with their diagnosis.”

On the game itself, Moore said he got what he wanted in terms of a tougher opponent and added: “I wanted the players to feel the impact when they gave the ball away in silly positions or give the ball away unnecessarily to good quality players. It’s things like that, that can hurt and punish you.”

Liam Palmer and Callum Paterson were both absent from the squad at West Brom due to illness.
