Wednesday hit by triple injury blow

Wednesday suffered a triple injury blow after taking a point in the 2-2 draw at high-flying Bournemouth today.

Keiren Westwood was a late withdrawal after suffering a calf injury in the warm-up and Chris Kirkland stepped in, once again proving an excellent deputy.

Fifteen minutes into the game, Sam Hutchinson suffered yet another injury when he tore a hamstring as he went in for a typical midfield tackle and then Kamil Zayatte suffered a suspected fractured cheekbone in an aerial challenge shortly before half-time.

Stuart Gray was pleased with Wednesday’s battling spirit, which saw Chris Maguire earn a 95th minute point from the penalty spot, and said he would have been very disappointed to have gone away with nothing to show for their all-round performance.
