Darren Moore shares Lee Gregory update ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Accrington

Published

on

Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has admitted that Lee Gregory is likely to miss Saturday’s showdown with Accrington Stanley due to injury.

The forward was forced to watch on from the sidelines during yesterday’s meeting with Plymouth Argyle as a result of an issue with his calf.

In Gregory’s absence, Wednesday succumbed to a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Home Park as they were outclassed by their opponents in the FA Cup.

Plymouth opened the scoring in the 20th minute as Jordan Garrick fired past Owls goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith.

Ryan Hardie then doubled the Pilgrims’ advantage as he netted his 12th goal of the season.

Following the break, Garrick ended Wednesday’s hopes of getting back into this tie as he scored Plymouth’s third goal of the evening.

The Pilgrims will now face fellow League One side Rochdale in the second round of the FA Cup.

Currently eighth in the third-tier standings, Wednesday will be aiming to deliver a response to their defeat to Plymouth when they face Accrington this weekend.

The Owls could potentially move into the play-off places if they beat John Coleman’s side at the Crown Ground.

Ahead of this clash, Moore has shared an update on Gregory.

Speaking to Yorkshire Live about the forward, the Wednesday boss said: “He will be touch and go for Saturday.

“I’d probably say no for Saturday.”

The Verdict

This is unquestionably a blow for Wednesday as Gregory has produced some impressive performances for the club in the third-tier this season.

During the 15 league games that the forward has played for the club, he has managed to score six goals whilst he has also chipped in with three assists.

With Moore seemingly unwilling to risk Gregory in Saturday’s fixture, the Owls boss will be hoping that Florian Kamberi and Callum Paterson will be able to deliver the goods against Accrington.

Having netted his third league goal of the season during the club’s meeting with Gillingham last weekend, Kamberi will fancy his chances of adding to this particular tally at the Crown Ground as Accrington have failed to keep a clean-sheet in five of their last six games in all competitions.
