Megson waits on Llera as Wednesday face crucial clash at S6

Miguel Llera faces a late fitness test for Wednesday as we face a hugely important game at home to Stevenage on Tuesday evening.

Llera left the pitch with a cut head just before Exeter equalised in Saturday’s disappointing defeat. He had six stitches in the wound and now Gary Megson waits to see if he is fit to face play-off contenders Stevenage.

Megson was angered at the way the Owls let another lead slip on Saturday. He was more reflective by Monday, but his remarks immediately after the defeat about a lack of application from some of the team puts a question mark over whether players such as Gary Madine and loanee John Bostock will find a place in the starting line-up.

The Exeter defeat means that victory against sixth-placed Stevenage becomes all the more important if we are to keep up our challenge for automatic promotion, on a night when the top six play each other – leaders Charlton being at home to MK Dons and Huddersfield enntertaining Sheff U.

Megson said: “I was so negative after Saturday’s defeat because I was absolutely devastated by the result. It was a huge, huge game, we were leading and had no problems – then we chucked it away.

“Now we’ve got a lot of putting right to do.”
