Weaver set for return to training
Wednesday goalkeeper Nicky Weaver is set for a return to the training pitch tomorrow ahead of schedule.
The Owls' number one has been sidelined for two-and-a-half months after suffering a knee injury but will give Owls boss Gary Megson a boost when he returns to Middlewood Road tomorrow.
The 32-year-old is still a while away from a return to first team football action but is ahead of schedule in regaining full fitness.
Megson told the Sheffield Star: 'Nicky is stepping up his work now, though it doesn't mean that he`s ready to be picked yet.'
Stephen Bywater has been standing in for Weaver on-loan from Derby County and has been impressive in the matches he's played in so far.
He signed on a 93-day emergency loan deal to cover Weaver and will continue in goal until the Owls' regular number one is ready for a return.
