Owls Defensive Worries

Wednesday will be without two key defenders through suspension for the visit of Roy Keane's improved Sunderland side at Hillsborough next Saturday.

Both Tommy Spurr and Frank Simek will be missing for Brian Laws at the weekend after both full-backs picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season in the Owls 1-0 defeat against Derby County on Saturday.

The suspensions take seven days to come in to action, allowing both players to be available for the Owls' midweek clash with Manchester City in the FA Cup Third Round replay at Eastlands on Tuesday.

But Brian Laws will be left to sweat over the fitness of a number of Wednesday defenders for the vital clash against the Mackems on Saturday, with both sides desperate for points to help their promotion aspirations.

Richard Wood and John Hills could both come in to fill-in after leaving the treatment room in recent weeks - but both have only featured once in an Owls reserve match recently, leaving them severely lacking in fitness.

I don't think Woody will be ready for then we could do with him playing a few reserve matches to get full fitness or even go out on loaj like Gilbert and Talbot.

I think it's a blessing in disguise that we can bring Hills back in to the defence. Not brilliant, but better and more balanced than having Spurr there.
