Missing man makes Wednesday comeback but deals for free agent duo could be off

One of Sheffield Wednesday’s injured players made his comeback as the Owls’ Under-23s beat Bristol City 2-1 on Wednesday.

However, it was not Chey Dunkley, as had been suggested, but Liam Shaw, as reported by Bristol Live.

Shaw had been missing for more than a month, having been forced off minutes into Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers in the Championship.

Recent trialists Kieran Cummings and De’Marlio Brown-Sterling were nowhere to be seen however, suggesting they will not be offered permanent contracts.

Wednesday’s opening goal was scored by Korede Adedoyin, the striker the Owls signed following a successful audition earlier this year.

And Ben Hughes struck a late winner for the visitors – a piece of good fortune he deserved for his chatitability this week.

Dunkley arrived at Hillsborough in August, but has yet to appear for Wednesday at any level.

The 28-year-old broke his leg while playing for Wigan in February, but is thought to be training in full.
