Wednesday’s bad luck in injury department continued today as Paul Sturrock recieved the news that young striker Barry Corr would miss the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old has picked up a stress related injury to his lower back which kept him out of the derby match agaisnt Sheffield United. He was used as a substitute against Southampton at the weekend though, which is thought to have caused a bad reaction.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock told the official SWFC site: ”I’m gutted for the laddie and the boy himself is inconsolable. Hopefully we’ll have him back for the start of next season.”

The Irishman was initially signed as a development player by Sturrock last summer, but has impressed in the games he’s played this season – despite not scoring a goal.

Sturrock continued: ”He went from being a development player to puttinh pressure on all the strikers.”

The injury will be a big blow to the Owls survival hopes this season, as the injury list gets bigger and bigger.
