Irvine To Delve Into Loan Market

Irvine To Delve Into Loan Market

Wednesday boss Alan Irvine is set to delve into the loan market as he aims to plug the gap left by the injured Mark Beevers.

Beevers is set to spend between six-eight weeks on the treatment table with an ankle injury suffered in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash against Chesterfield last week.

And Irvine has since confirmed that he'll be looking to the loan market to bolster his defence.

Lewis Buxton filled in for Beevers and put in a man-of-the-match performance in the 1-0 victory against Leyton Orient at Hillsborough on Saturday, and also scored the winner.

But with Beevers' injury and the timely takeover boost nearing a conclusion, Irvine won't take a risk and is set to look for a short-term replacement in defence.

Wednesday are current under a transfer embargo but that will be lifted as soon as the Owls settle their £600,000 bill with HMRC, which is expected as soon as the investment group put an initial £2m downpayment on the table.

im happy to put buxton in the middle or give hinds some game time. i'd much rather get a midfielder who can link the midfield to the forwards rather than the huge space we constantly seem to have between the two.

Agree Dezzyp we need more creativity for the strikers, hopefully Johnson will be back for a start following the Yeovil game, we have a run of 8 games coming up against sides who will be in and around the top ten, we need to start creating more chances as not all sides will miss as many as Leyton Orient did on sat
11/10/2010 12:59:00
Creating chances is our biggest issue. I'd like to see big Al recruit a tought, ball winning midfielder.

But then i think coke and miller are midfielders who get forward, especially miller who has a decent goalscoring records from midfield. but it cant work if we are defending then just punt a long ball forward and the opposition get it back, our build up play in non-existant. i hate to say it but i actually think father ted is playing it far too safe and the tactics being used are holding us back.

Brian Stock at Doncaster would be a good acquisition if he could keep fit, not a bad age 28 and Doncaster are looking to off load him DEZZYP.

To be honest, if we can startplaying through the middle of the park rather than hoof it forward im quite happy with the squad. id like to see jones on the left, looks like he can whip a good ball in. jj on the right and miller and coke in the middle. i cant see there being any better in league 1. i also think widening the pitch hasnt paid off, could do with making the pitch a bit smaller. but i honestly think poor tactics are holding us back.
11/10/2010 16:09:00
Anyone heard any rumours on who we're getting?
11/10/2010 16:28:00
couldnt agree more DEZZYP with that choice of midfield.
11/10/2010 17:55:00
No injury prone players - pleease
11/10/2010 18:16:00
i am happy with buxton i think its purse that needs replacing and dont believe hinds is up to the job (he will just punt it as well) i agree with the midfield selection dezzyp. think with the defence punting it up means the midfield dont get a chance to play the ball through on the ground. anyone no when jj is back fully fit?
