Sheffield Wednesday have been hit with an irritating injury blow heading into the festive period, which could make or break their season.
Garry Monk has recently revealed that Fernando Forestieri is set to miss up to a week of action through an injury that forced him to be withdrawn early into their game against Charlton Athletic.
Forestieri has only made two league starts this term in his nine appearances for the Owls as they look to stay in touch with the promotion-chasing sides in the Championship.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently sat sixth in the league table, and will fancy their chances of retaining their spot in the play-off places as we head into the potentially season-defining festive period.
But they’ll have to cope without Forestieri, who is set for another spell in the treatment room.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans took to social media to issue their thoughts on Forestieri after this latest injury update.
