Sheffield Wednesday are facing an anxious wait with regards to Josh Windass, according to Yorkshire Live.
The forward was taken off after 37 minutes of the Championship class with Derby County last week with the 26-year-old thought to have suffered a blow to his hamstring.
Discussing the injury, caretaker boss Neil Thompson said: “He’ll be assessed. In terms of the intensity of the games coming thick and fast, we’re not going to have that for the next two, three, four weeks which is good. Hopefully it gives players a chance to get back.”
After becoming a central figure for the Owls this term the hope will surely be that the injury is not as bad as first feared.
Time will tell just how severe the injury is, but given the closure of the club’s training ground it could be difficult to carry out a full assessment.
This is due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the club which has led to the decision to allow the players to train from home before taking a decision on whether to reopen the training ground.
The big Sheffield Wednesday quiz: Can you get 20/20?
Sheffield Wednesday will be praying that Josh Windass has not suffered a serious injury.
While four goals this term is far from prolific, there’s no doubt that he’s been a big player for the Owls and so the prospect of losing him long-term would be a bit of a disaster.
Time will tell just how severe the injury is, but Neil Thompson will certainly have his fingers crossed.
