Sheffield Wednesday confirmed they will be without three players ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with Charlton Athletic – Moses Odubajo (hamstring), Massimo Luongo (calf), Adam Reach (toe). Osaze Urhoghide has returned after serving a one-match ban.
How will Sheffield Wednesday fare against Charlton Athletic?
Odubajo has been sidelined for three weeks with a hamstring injury, causing him to miss Wednesday’s last four league games. Garry Monk said it’s unlikely that he’ll feature this week, so the 26-year-old could be absent for Saturday’s meeting with Derby County too.
Luongo has been out of action for nearly six weeks due to suspension and a calf injury, causing him to miss the Owls’ last seven games in all competitions. Monk said he needs another week recover, so it’s likely that the 27-year-old will also miss the Derby game.
Reach has been absent for nearly four weeks with a toe injury, having last played in Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Millwall (February 1). There’s no return date on the 27-year-old, however, so it remains to be seen when he’ll be back.
Urhoghide missed Wednesday’s 3-3 draw with Birmingham City on Saturday as he was suspended following a red card in the Owls’ 3-0 defeat to Reading (February 15), but he’s available for selection against Charlton.
