Massimo Luongo recently returned from injury and started for Sheffield Wednesday in this week’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. The 27-year-old impressed on the night and was lauded by supporters on social media.

With the Owls enduring a five-game winless run in the Championship, Garry Monk could make a number of changes ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Charlton Athletic. Luongo is likely to keep his place in midfield, however.

Against Birmingham, the Australian international lined up alongside Barry Bannon and Kieran Lee, played for 90 minutes, made 69 touches, won three aerial duels, created one chance, completed 92.2% of his 51 passes, whipped in three crosses, made two tackles, had four shots, drew one foul and made one interception.

Luongo has made 12 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals in 627 minutes of playing time. He’s amassed only 110 minutes of football in the last four weeks after suffering a knee & groin injury, which also forced him to withdraw from international duty, but he’s back in action now and took his chance to impress after Monk gave him the nod.

Sam Hutchinson might struggle to get back into the side now.
