Double Blow For Owls

Double Blow For Owls

Wednesday have been dealt a double blow with the news that Wade Small and Tommy Spurr could both be missing from the Owls clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday after picking up injuries in the 2-2 draw with Wolves on Saturday.

Caretaker boss Sean McAuley has selected the same side since taking the reigns and has seen his side pick up four points from a possible six. But he may now be forced to change his hand ahead of the clash with Peter Taylor's men on Tuesday night.

Former MK Dons winger Small suffered a dead leg in the first-half of the Molineux clash - but played through the pain barrier and opened the Owls scoring before making the second goal in his most impressive performance in a Wednesday shirt to date.

McAuley told the official SWFC site: 'Wade got injured in the first half and, credit to him, he carried on. He caused them a few problems.

'He's got a dead leg which is in a tricky position near his hip. He couldn't find that burst of pace and that's what his game is all about. Tommy is okay but was unconscious.'

Young defender Spurr was knocked unconcsious late on in the match - leaving the Owls with ten men in the closing stages - but came around in the dressing room after the match. The youngster is unlikely to feature on Tuesday night.

But McAuley has received positive news by hearing Graham Coughlan could be fit to return to the starting line-up to replace Spurr, after recovering from a hamstring injury. Coughlan will undergo a late fitness test but is likely to feature.
