Sheffield Wednesday defender Tom Lees is set to return to action this afternoon following almost a three month absence from competitive football.
The 27-year-old will play in the Owls’ development match at Huddersfield, according to Dom Howson of The Sheffield Star on Twitter.
Lees has been a regular at Hillsborough following his switch from Leeds United in 2014, and his absence from the squad has been keenly felt over the past few months.
The club have slipped into 17th position having qualified for the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, and now lie just six points from the bottom three.
The return of the influential man will mark a huge boost for new boss Jos Luhukay, who has struggled since taking over from Carlos Carvalhal last month.
Tom Lees is an important figure at Hillsborough and has been missed, with his return sure to spark a return to form for the Owls.
The first-team squad has been ravaged by injuries this season, with an argument that Carlos Carvalhal may still be with the club had he had his regulars fit and available for selection.
Luhukay will now begin to welcome players back into the fold, with the hope that a mid-table finish can be secured in the coming months, and an unlikely relegation scrap avoided.
