Sheffield Wednesday are making a late charge for the top six under Steve Bruce, and they have been given a major boost.

The Owls beat Bolton Wanderers 2-0 on Tuesday night to continue their fine form since Bruce's arrival, avoiding defeat in nine games.

This run of form, and a new-found defensive solidity, have propelled Wednesday up the table, and they are now just four points off the play-offs.

 

Wednesday have given themselves a chance of making a late run into the playoffs, and midfielder Josh Onomah now looks set to play a part in the end-of-season run-in.

Onomah, 21, hasn't really impressed at Hillsborough since arriving on loan from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, making just eight Championship starts.

Back under his former Aston Villa boss Bruce, Onomah will have been hoping to kick on, but has managed just 25 minutes under him having picked up an injury last month.

His last appearance came against Ipswich six weeks ago, but a photo posted by Wednesday today showed the players training – and eagle-eyed fans spotted Onomah in the picture.

Onomah was tweeted about the matter and admitted that it's good to be back training again, and he may be hoping to force his way into Bruce's plans for the rest of the campaign.
