31-year-old will surely be fearing the chop at Sheffield Wednesday following latest Bruce comments

Sheffield Wednesday head into the final match of the season sat in tenth place, with their final clash coming against Queens Park Rangers at Hillsborough.

They sit 24 points clear of the drop zone and seven adrift of the play-off places, making the Sunday match-up a dead-rubber.

So, this means the attentions of Steve Bruce, his staff and the Wednesday board will no doubt have turned to the summer and how they will strengthen for next season.

The Owls manager dropped a hint during his pre-match press conference that there will be plenty of changes during the coming summer months as well, saying that they need some ‘younger, fresher legs.’

Given their injury problems over recent seasons there will be plenty of players fearing the chop, one of whom will be Gary Hooper.

Hooper was out injured for more than a year, only making his return in March of this year, and although he has played well, he is still very vulnerable to to losing his place in the side.

His contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign and there has been no news on a new deal being offered to him yet, like there has to Kieren Westwood.

Fear will therefore surely start to creep in after this update.
