Cellino hearing latest

Massimo Cellino's appeal against his ban from the Football League will be heard today, according to the Guardian

Cellino was disqualified from owning Leeds United in December, but he is fighting his cause and his arguments will be presented to a three person committee today.

The final outcome of the appeal is likely to be known by next week. 

Gray: we're getting stronger

Stuart Gray is pleased with the direction that his Sheffield Wednesday side are heading in. 

The Owls have seen a number of players return to fitness recently, while the arrival of Lewis Baker on loan from Chelsea looks an astute purchase, and Gray is clearly pleased with the strength of his squad. 

“The players who’ve got the shirt have got to keep it as there are people waiting to grasp it,” he said to the Sheffield Star

“I’ve got Joe Mattock and Sam Hutchinson back and champing at the bit. I’ve got a fantastic individual player in Lewis Baker who was only on the bench last weekend and Jeremy Helan is back available. We’re getting stronger.”

Cuvelier injury update

Florent Cuvelier could be fit to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Carling Cup semi-final next week, according to Nigel Clough. 

The Belgian midfielder has been out with a calf injury since Boxing Day, but he could be back to face Spurs. 

“Hopefully Flo will be okay for Spurs,” Clough explained to the Sheffield Star. “If not then we’ll definitely need him for (the FA Cup tie with) Preston on the Saturday.”
