New Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has revealed that defender Dominic Iorfa is making ‘wonderful progress’ in his battle to return from injury.
Iorfa hasn’t been seen in the Sheffield Wednesday side since the side’s 2-1 defeat against Barnsley on the 12th of December where he ruptured his Achilles, which will see him miss the remainder of the season.
However, boss Moore provided a positive update on the defender’s recovery.
Moore said: “I’ve had a chat with Dom [Iorfa], he’s making wonderful progress, there is light at the end of tunnel for him. But for now, it’s about getting himself right for pre-season and he’s someone I’m really looking forward to working with.”

After a several loan spells at Ipswich and Shrewsbury Town the former Wolves defender finally left Molineux when he joined the Owls in 2019.
Since signing for the club, the full-back has been a regular in the Wednesday team and he has now played over 60 times for the club.
Moore and his side will be hoping that despite the loss of Iorfa they will be able to battle their way out of relegation trouble in the remaining nine league games this season.
If you don’t get at least 15/20 on this Sheffield Wednesday midfielder quiz, can you really call yourself an Owls fan?
The Owls currently sit 23rd in the Championship with only newly promoted Wycombe Wanderers below them in the table.
Moore’s side face a tough away trip at high-flying Watford on Good Friday and the side will be desperately looking to gain three three points.
The side are on a two-game unbeaten run having drawn with Huddersfield and beaten Barnsley in their last two league outings.
Iorfa is a big miss in this Sheffield Wednesday side. He is a player who brings vast experience and real quality in the wide areas.
The defender has been missing for some time though and the rest of the squad need to step up to ensure that Iorfa isn’t playing his football in League One when he returns.
Moore’s side face a huge challenge to survive but recent form may give them a fighting chance if other results go their way.
