Moore waits on skipper as Owls face league leaders

Wednesday wait on a fitness update on Barry Bannan ahead of tomorrow evening’s trip to division one leaders Wigan.

Skipper Bannan limped off with a knee problem during the second half of Saturday’s draw at Ipswich while Darren Moore may freshen up his starting line-up as the Owls look to end a run of four league games without a win.

However, the Wednesday boss made it clear after Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s 89th minute howler at Ipswich that the young keeper will keep his place for the trip to the DW Stadium.

Hosts Wigan are joint top of the division one table after five successive victories and Wednesday will have to show more intensity, pace and aggression than in recent weeks if they want to return from Lancashire with at least a point.
