Sheffield Wednesday have with multiple injury issues in recent weeks and an update regarding Adam Reach has made the situation even worse.
The winger, signed by Carlos Carvalhal in 2016, has been out of action since playing against Millwall at the beginning of February, but Garry Monk would likely have hoped for him to be back by now after sustaining an injury to his toe.
However, according to YorkshireLive Reach is very likely to miss the weekend clash against Nottingham Forest, while the matches against Bristol City and West Brom may also come too soon for him.
That means Reach may have to wait until the trip to Swansea next month before he plays again, while Massimo Luongo and Julian Borner could also miss out once again.
The Owls have really struggled without Reach in the side, winning one match in seven games. Alessio Da Cruz has taken his place for some of those games but has failed to contribute a goal or an assist, and the same can be said of Kadeem Harris who has featured over the same period.
As a result, Monk should be boosted by his return, and it is a little harsh for fans to criticise their manage so severely when he hasn’t had his best players available to him.
When he signed for Carlos Carvahal in 2016 he went on to score only three goals and make four assists for Wednesday in 2016/17, yet still helped the team into the play-off places.
He has trumped that this season, therefore, and as a senior player in the squad he should boost his teammates upon his return. Considering the likes of Sam Hutchinson and Keiren Westwood unavailable, he is perhaps one of the biggest leadership figures in the dressing room, too.
