Wednesday’s injury problems in attack have got worse with the news that Marcus Tudgay is expected to be sidelined for two weeks.

The former Derby County man wasn’t even included in the squad for the Carling Cup clash with Rotherham United on Tuesday night but will be missing for the trip to Wolves this weekend and the home clash with Preston the following week.

The news is an extra blow to Owls boss Brian Laws, who also lost Akpo Sodje for up to two months after the hitman picked up an injury in the 4-1 thumping of Burnley at the weekend.

Laws told the official SWFC website: ‘The downside though is that I had to bring Deon Burton off because Marcus Tudgay has picked up a thigh strain which could keep him out for a couple of weeks. It means we have to wrap our strikers up in cotton wool’

It means Laws is likely to opt for Deon Burton and give Leon Clarke another chance against his former club this weekened.
