Josh Windass has taken to his personal Twitter account to issue a message to both Wigan Athletic and Sheffield Wednesday supporters ahead of the clash between his old and current employers.
Windass is currently on the sidelines through injury, with the 27-year-old yet to feature for the Owls this season in League One.
That comes after he had surgery on a hamstring issue that has kept him out of the first few months of the campaign.
Darren Moore revealed to Yorkshire Live ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at Ipswich Town on Saturday that Windass is still going along with his rehabilitation and is making good progress with the club’s medical team.
That means that Windass will not be able to make a return to action at the DW Stadium against his former club in Wigan.
However, he will be invested in the game and hoping that he can watch the Owls get back to winning ways after four matches without a win.

The 27-year-old endured a difficult ending to his time with the Latics. He has admitted in the past that he left the SW Stadium because he did not see eye to eye with then Wigan manager Paul Cook.

Taking to his personal Twitter account Windass has taken his chance to remind one or two Wigan supporters who continue to give him some stick after he left the club over his qualities. While he also took the chance to look forwards to Owls’ trip to the DW Stadium.

There is clearly a strained relationship between Windass and some sections of Wigan’s fanbase due to the way that his time with the Latics came to an end.
However, this seems to be more of a light-hearted reminder to those Wigan supporters by Windass that he did enjoy some good moments in front of goal whilst playing for the Latics.
Windass would have been really up for this game you sense had he been fully fit and able to feature for the Owls. It is therefore a shame for Darren Moore that he can not call upon the 27-year-old to try and make an impact in this fixture.
The 27-year-old will be wanting his team-mates to get a positive result tonight to try and close the gap on Wigan in the table and get the Owls’ form back on track ahead of his return to action.
