Sheffield Wednesday will head into their huge Steel City Derby clash without star man Sam Hutchinson, as the midfielder suffers even more injury woes.
Indeed, Sheffield Wednesday will have been hoping that acquiring new manager Jos Luhukay was the last of their worries, but after hearing news of another injury things are about to get a whole lot worse at Hillsborough.
After losing Barry Bannan and Kieran Westwood in weeks gone by, Sheffield Wednesday have been dealt an even bigger blow as their reliable defensive-midfielder Sam Hutchinson has suffered a fresh injury after sitting out the last-two matches with hernia problems.
However, it doesn’t stop there as the hard-working midfielder may have to go under the knife once again, after having his knee surgically repaired in October.
Nevertheless, Dom Howson, Sheffield Star journalist let fans know of this tragic news as he took to his personal Twitter account (@domhowson).

Having only made seven appearances for the side so far this season, it’s clear to see that the former Chelsea man has had a torrid time with injuries, that have begun to halt his career progress.
A possible cause for this may have been the wrong diagnosis after suffering the knee injury against QPR, as he spoke in an interview last month:
“I fractured my leg against QPR, and it didn’t get diagnosed for a month because the scans were read wrong. “That ended up splintering, hence the reason why I played against Bolton then had to have an operation afterwards to get a bone removed. It was a bit of bone sticking in another bit of bone, which needed to be removed. It’s just been a nightmare, a freak thing that just sums up my career really.”
Will be a huge blow for Sheffield Wednesday.
A player who proved so vital in their play-off push season in the heart of the midfield, someone who’s been evidently missed this season with their poor midfield performances, and inability to stop conceding goals.
Against a side who holds the Championship’s top scorer Leon Clarke, the loss of the midfielder could spell trouble for Jos Luhukay in his first game in charge.
