Owls Duo To Be Recalled?

Owls Duo To Be Recalled?

Wednesday loan duo Steve Watson and Iain Turner could be set for a recall to their current clubs before the end of the campaign - leaving the Owls with a problem on their hands.

Everton boss David Moyes has already revealed he may have to recall young goalkeeper Iain Turner in time for Everton's forthcoming clash with Manchester United.

Tim Howard is currently on loan between the sticks at Goodison Park from the Old Trafford club and is ineligable for the tie - leaving the Toffees with just one first team 'keeper in Richard Wright. But Wright has since picked up an injury and Turner could be set for a recall to feature for his parent club against Alex Ferguson's men.

The news would mean back-up stopper Chris Adamson would get the nod for the Owls remaining two matches of the campaign at Birmingham City and at home to Coventry - with the possibility of Mark Crossley also returning after seeing his loan spell cut short or young stopper Richard O'Donnell getting a place in the squad.

Further worry for Wednesday comes in the form of Steve Watson's future at S6 with the former Bolton and Everton man rumoured for a possible recall to parent club West Brom as the Baggies enter the vital final stretch of the season with a number of injuries to their squad.

And the added possibility of Watson helping the Owls to a play-off spot - possibly at the expence of the Midlands club - could mean Baggies boss Tony Mowbray opts for a recall of Watson in the next week or two.

Wednesday managed without Watson as they picked up a superb 1-0 victory at the Hawthornes on Friday night courtesy of a Deon Burton goal.

But his early departure could cause problems at the back for Wednesday should they achieve their slim hopes of a play-off finish.
