Wednesday have received a blow with the news that in-form winger Jermaine Johnson is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks with a knee injury.

The Jamaican pulled up with the injury in Saturday’s defeat at Chesterfield and it’s expected that he’ll now miss the rest of the season.

The news is a blow for Wednesday but not entirely unexpected given Johnson’s injury record.

It’s also softened by the fact that the Owls signed Reading winger Michail Antonio on-loan until the end of the current campaign.

Johnson is out of contract at Hillsborough at the end of the season and the set-back could be crucial in any decision to offer him a new deal.
