Wednesday’s on-loan striker Luke Varney won’t be able to feature against parent club Derby County when the two sides meet at Hillsborough on Saturday.

As expected, the terms of the striker’s loan deal with the Owls will prevent him featuring against Nigel Clough’s men in this weekend’s crucial Championship match.

It differs to that of fellow loanee Eddie Nolan, who was allowed to play against parent club Preston North End at Deepdale last night.

Varney also had to sit in the stands when the Rams hosted Wednesday earlier in the season.

The former Crewe and Charlton man has fallen down the pecking order at Pride Park under boss Nigel Clough and is expected to leave Derby on a permanent deal at the end of the season.
