Forestieri ruled out of Derby trip

Fernando Forestieri misses Saturday’s trip to Derby because of his latest hamstring problem … and Steve Bruce doesn’t know how long he will be sidelined.

Forestieri was subbed at half-time in Monday’s derby with Sheff U and Bruce said a scan has revealed a slight hamstring strain.

The Owls boss voiced his concern over another hamstring injury for Forestieri and said that, at this stage, it is impossible to suggest when the striker will return to action.

As he has said previously, Bruce repeated his concerns about the number of serious injuries at the club and said he and his backroom staff will be looking into possible causes.

Lucas Joao is also ruled out of the trip to Derby with his knee injury but Sam Winnall may return to the squad after his lengthy lay-off with knee ligament damage – suffered while on loan to tomorrow’s opponents during last season.
