Owls Break Loan Rules

Owls Break Loan Rules

Wednesday could be set for a punishment from the Football League after breaking rules in the 1-1 clash with Stoke City by fielding too many loan players.

The Owls included six loan players in their squad for the home clash with the Potters, but are only allowed to include five under league rules.

And they could be set for punishment as big as a points deduction for breaking the rules, although a cash fine is the more likely outcome.

Promotion-hopefuls Stoke have demanded an investigation in light of Franck Songo'o's, one of the loan players in question, leveller in the second half to give Wednesday a much-needed point in the battle against the drop.

Ben Sahar (Chelsea) and Graham Kavanagh (Sunderland) also started the clash while Enoch Showunmi (Bristol City), Adam Bolder (QPR) and new-boy Bartosz Slusarski (West Brom) were also included on the Owls' bench.

wendy are fine, they didnt break the rules as the players mentioned were brought into the club as emergency loan deals not just normal loan deals. come on do you think wendy would honnestly not know the crack here with so much at stake.

Scummy Leeds were charged with exactly the same offence and received a £1000 fine. So we should get a £500 fine ,thats how the league usually works if you listen to mardy Leeds scum
