Wednesday midfielder Tommy Miller will definitely miss the Owls’ League One kick-off against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday through a hamstring injury.

The former Ipswich Town man had featured for Wednesday in pre-season friendly matches but his injury woes in the blue and white stripes are set to continue.

Owls boss Alan Irvine told the official SWFC site: ‘Tommy Miller is definitely out, JJ is looking unlikely to make an appearance but we’ll find out more tomorrow.

‘It’s a blow but that’s football and we just have to concentrate on the players that are available.’

The news on Jermaine Johnson is another blow to Irvine’s preparations but his setback isn’t feared to be too serious, with a run-out in next Tuesday’s Carling Cup tie against Bury a possibility.
