Darren Moore issues update on Sheffield Wednesday duo following club’s latest triumph

Published

on

Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has admitted that Sam Hutchinson and Lewis Gibson are set to be assessed today after picking up injuries in the club’s clash with Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.

The Owls managed to seal all three-points in this particular showdown thanks to a strike from Lee Gregory in the 66th minute of the fixture after this aforementioned duo were substituted at half-time as a result of their respective issues.

Hutchinson made his return to action against Bolton after missing Wednesday’s recent defeat to Oxford United.

Meanwhile, Gibson finally made his bow in League One for the Owls in this particular fixture after being forced to watch on from the sidelines in recent months.

Having both suffered fresh injuries at Hillsborough, Gibson and Hutchinson are now set to find out how serious their respective issues are.

Making reference to this duo, Moore has revealed that both players will need to be assessed ahead of the club’s upcoming clash with AFC Wimbledon.

Jack Brown is the club's highest appearance maker.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Wednesday boss said: “It’s too early to give a prognosis, we’ll see after Monday how they shape up.

“We’ll get them in on Monday [today] and see what the medical team says after an assessment but both were unable to carry on at half time [against Bolton].

The Verdict

Moore now faces a nervous wait to see whether these injuries will rule out Gibson and Hutchinson for an extensive period of time.

Although the Owls did go on to secure victory against Bolton, they will be hoping to call upon the services of this aforementioned duo in the coming months as they look to climb the League One standings.

If Gibson and Hutchinson are unavailable for the club’s showdown with Wimbledon, Moore may need to turn to Dennis Adeniran and Chey Dunkley for inspiration.

Adeniran has already scored two goals for Wednesday in League One this season whilst Dunkley is currently averaging a respectable WhoScored match rating of 6.90 at this level.
