Owls defender Ben Heneghan underwent a knee operation on Friday morning.
The 29-year-old had been in good form before picking up a season-ending injury during our trip to Lincoln in October.
Manager Darren Moore has revealed the operation was a success and that Ben’s road to recovery begins now.
“He had it done today and it was successful which is brilliant.
“For Ben now, the road to recovery is clear. All has gone really well, we had the message that he has had it done this morning.
“I will phone him tonight when I get to the hotel and see how he is.
“It is a long road ahead but I think for Ben mentally now, because he’s had it done, the road to recovery has started.
“He’ll get the best support, the best treatment and he’ll recover. With those types of operations now you can make a full recovery from them and that’s what we expect from Ben.”
