Upbeat Gray gives positive Wednesday injury update

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray is in a positive mood at the moment.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray has given a positive injury update in the Sheffield Star about his squad.

The Owls were light on numbers up front, but Sergiu Bus and Will Keane are both making their way off the treatment table and Gray is delighted to have so many options available to him. 

“We’ve gone from being really light on forwards and having to recall Caolan Lavery to having plenty to choose from," he said. 

“It’s a good position to be in. Will Keane had a light training session and is likely to join in full training on Monday. And Bus was in full training on Thursday and showed no ill effects."

Wednesday have struggled for goals throughout the campaign, so to have so many attacking options at their disposal can only be a good thing. 

The likes of Stevie May and Atdhe Nuhiu have both struggled to hit the back of the net with too much regularity and, as a result, Gray's men have only scored 36 goals in their 39 Championship games so far this season.

It is something that Wednesday will need to improve on and Gray has already expressed his desire to recruit a free-scoring front-man next campaign in the Sheffield Star, where expectations will be raised at Hillsborough.

Wednesday went into this season with little pressure on them, but they will be amongst the favourites for promotion next campaign as they have now have funds available to spend.
