'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Frankie Injury Outcome

Wednesday right-back Frank Simek is set to be sidelined for around six to eight weeks with ankle ligament damage sustained in the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The American international hobbled off at Selhurst Park after a freak injury which saw the former Arsenal youngster receive a pass from Wade Small and fall to the floor in agony after digging his studs in the turf.

Wednesday boss Brian Laws, along with other Wednesday officials, feared the worst following the match and scans have today shown that Simek is set to be out for at least six weeks.

Club physio, Mark Palmer, told the official SWFC website: 'The scans showed that Frank has ruptured a ligament in his ankle. We will see how he progresses over the next ten days but it is likely that he will be out for six to eight weeks.'

The blow came as Simek celebrated winning his 100th start since joining the Owls in the clash with Palace, and he's now set to miss the entire festive fixture calendar as well as the Steel City derby in January.

It just seems to go from bad to worse, does the left hand even know there is a right hand, let alone what it's doing. I'd put lol but it just ain't funny any more
