Owls sweating over Johnson

Sun, 08 Apr 12:53:40 2012

Reda Johnson is a doubt for promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday's clash with Oldham after he suffered an injury in the 2-0 win at Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield.

The defender was forced off after just 17 minutes of the victory and may struggle to recover in time for Monday's game.

Mark Beevers came off the bench to replace Johnson and comes into contention to start.

Wednesday skipper Rob Jones will be looking for an immediate return to the starting XI at Hillsborough after serving a one-match suspension.

However, fellow central defenders Danny Batth and Miguel Llera marked the division's top scorer Jordan Rhodes out of the game on Saturday, so Owls manager Dave Jones may prefer to select an unchanged duo at the back.
