- Head coach Stuart Gray hopeful over Owls duo
- Kieran Lee and Giles Coke injury concerns
- Owls also monitoring Keiren Westwood
Owls head coach Stuart Gray is hopeful that the international break will give sufficient time for his players in the treatment room to get back out on the pitch.
Kieran Lee and Giles Coke are struggling with their groin and Achilles injuries respectively.
Both featured in Wednesday’s derby draw last time out with Rotherham and with the pair receving on-going treatment over the break, Gray hopes the duo will be fit in time for the Huddersfield clash.
“We have been having on-going problems with Kieran and Giles so they had injections,” Gray said.
“We hope that will resolve their problems. The specialist is confident the injections will help the healing process.
“We might have to shut them down and not bring them back into training until the middle of next week.
“The break has given us the opportunity to give some players TLC.”
Meanwhile, Keiren Westwood has missed out on international duty with the Republic of Ireland due to a minor hip injury.
The Irish lost 1-0 to Scotland at Celtic Park on Friday and with Westwood sidelined, Gray said:
“We had to pull Keiren out from the Republic of Ireland squad. It is disappointing for him but he’s had an on-going hip problem ever since the Watford game.
“We have to monitor him and get him treatment.”
