Six Week Sideline For Folly

Six Week Sideline For Folly

In-form Owls midfielder Yoann Folly will face six weeks on the sidelines after scans confirmed the 21-year-old injured his knee cartilage in the 1-0 defeat to Luton Town on Tuesday night.

The former Southampton man has made a promising start to the new campaign for Paul Sturrock's men but now joins the growing list of casualties in the Wednesday treatment room.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock told the official SWFC site: 'It's a huge blow. Yoann and Glenn Whelen have been exceptional as a pairing. But it's an opportunity for whoever goes in there. We're just going to have to roll our sleeves up even more.'

The Frenchman signed permanently for the club in the summer after impressing while on a three-month loan spell from the St Mary's side last season. His performances helped the Owls secure their Championship status.

Sturrock continued: 'I've been very proud of all our players' attitude to all (our injury problems). Their response has been second to none. Tuesday was a hude kick in the teeth for us and they'll have to respond again.'

Folly joins Marcus Tudgay, Deon Burton, Richard Wood, Peter Gilbert, Drew Talbot, Steve Adams and Barry Corr on the Owls injury list.

Meanwhile, Tommy Spurr and Frank Simek have sat out training today. Spurr has a virus while Simek is suffering from conjunctivitus. Both players are expected to be fit for the clash with Burnley on Saturday.
