Owls await update on Fletcher injury

Steven Fletcher is the latest striker to be added to our injury list.

Fletcher, arguably Wednesday’s most consistent performer this season, was helped from the field early in the second half after taking a heavy knock to his knee and ankle.

With fellow forwards Fernando Forestieri, Lucas Joao and Gary Hooper all already sidelined, Steve Bruce said: “Fletcher’s got a whack to his knee and his ankle, we’ll see how he is on Sunday. Unfortunately we’ve been dealt that hand but we’ve still got a big enough squad to cause a lot of teams problems.”

Bruce was pleased with the performance of Sam Winnall when he came on for the final 30 minutes at Derby – Winnall himself still recovering from a long lay-off following knee ligament damage – and the Owls boss also praised the contribution of Atdhe Nuhiu who replaced the injured Fletcher.
