According to The Star, Sheffield Wednesday man Josh Onomah has suffered a fresh injury setback that could keep him out for up to a month, and Owls fans have been qucik to reac.
Onomah was signed by Steve Bruce on a season-long loan during his time at Aston Villa in the 2017/18 season, and his decision to take the reigns at Hillsborough has seen the pair reunited.
The 21-year-old Tottenham Hotspur loanee returned from a hamstring injury last weekend against Ipswich Town, coming off the bench for the final 25 minutes of action.
But just as Onomah had returned from one hamstring problem, he managed to pull his other one in the dying embers of the game in a cruel stroke of misfortune.
According to The Star, Onomah is now expected to be out for a minimum of three to four weeks.
The reaction to his latest setback on Twitter mostly arrived from disgruntled Sheffield Wednesday fans, many of whom called for him to be sent back to Spurs in light of reports.
Whether the north London outfit will make that decision remains to be seen, but Bruce’s admission that Onomah “was terrific for me at Aston Villa last season” suggests that he will want to keep him until the end of the season.
Here’s a selection of the Twitter reaction to Onomah’s fresh injury setback:

Should probably send him back. Been a poor signing. Obviously got talent but never showed it. #swfc

Spurs were talking of cutting his loan short the last time he was injured and went back for treatment. Would be best if this time they did, we’ve enough injury prone players tbh.

Too many hamstring injuries, really needs looking at. It’s been going on for too long now. I know Bruce said he is going to look at it.
