Wednesday have received a blow in the battle against relegation with the news that striker Marcus Tudgay will sit out the rest of the season through injury.

The Owls’ top scorer this season, with eight goals, has been sidelined for a number of weeks with a knee injury and will now sit out the rest of the campaign after undergoing surgery that will see him out for six weeks.

But things could have been worse for the former Derby hitman, with fears that he could have been out for six months rather than six weeks, prior to the surgery.

The blow leaves Owls boss Brian Laws with Deon Burton, Ben Sahar, Bartosz Slusarski and Leon Clarke at his disposal in the battle against the drop, with Enoch Showunmi returning from his loan spell to Bristol City.
