Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Momo Diaby will have an MRI scan on a potential injury sustained in yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Preston North End.

Sheffield Wednesday welcomed Preston North End to Hillsborough yesterday. And despite the 1-0 defeat, the Owls showed considerable improvements from their previous defeat at Hull City, with new signing Diaby making his first start.

The man on loan from Portimonense gave a good account of himself before being brought off midway through the second half of the game, with what proved to be an injury.

Speaking to The Star after the game, Wednesday boss Munoz had this to say before revealing that Diaby would undergo an MRI to discover the extent of his injury:

“We will see. He arrived five days ago, he lives in a hotel, he has nothing and he played 100 per cent in the game. Normally, you are a man, not a machine.

“This is the thing I need people to understand. If I lose him for two months or three months, then after we are thinking. They are players, they are not machines. We will see what happens.”

Potential injury for Diaby is a blow…

Diaby arrived and brought some much-needed power and presence to the Wednesday midfield. And given the fact that he’s not been here long and that he’s never played in England before, he gave fans a very good insight into what he can bring to the side.

So his injury is certainly a blow for Munoz and his side who definitely looked better yesterday. A first win and a first point of the season continues to elude them, however, with the Owls now being the only side in the Championship not to have put a point on the board.

Up next for the Owls is a trip to Cardiff City next weekend, in what is another tough, but potentially winnable fixture for Sheffield Wednesday.
