Fletcher fit and a full week for Lee

5 April 2019

There is positive news on the fitness front for the Owls.

Having missed out at Stoke last weekend, Steve Bruce says he expects in-form striker Steven Fletcher to be available for selection.

Fletcher, who was this week voted as the SWFC March Player of the Month, has scored five in his last six.

The striker also scored in the reverse fixture at Villa Park earlier this season in Wednesday’s 2-1 victory.

Bruce also confirmed that Kieran Lee has trained all week, which represents a big step forward for the midfielder, who has been on the long term injury list.

The manager explained: “I expect Steven Fletcher to be fit, which is good news.

“The only one who is a slight doubt is Aarons but everyone else is fit which can only be a good thing for us.

“We’d love them all to have been fit two or three months ago but they are all edging there now and Kieran Lee has trained all week.

“That is a delight for him. It’s too early for him to play in any competitive game yet but he’s trained all week which is good to see for all the squad.

“It’s good to see him back. We have edged him into it, he’s been out a long, long time.

“Him and Hooper, their last games were Christmas 2017, so it’s good to see them back out on the grass.

“Hooper, Winnall and Forestieri have trained all week so they will be involved.

“Lazaar has trained all week but it will be too early for him to go in tomorrow.”
