Sheffield Wednesday Hit With Suspension Setback and Injury Woes Ahead of Championship Clash…

Sheffield Wednesday faces a setback as they prepare to visit Wayne Rooney’s Birmingham City after the international break.

Manager Danny Röhl will need to make adjustments to the starting lineup due to the suspension of utility player Callum Paterson.

Paterson, a Scotland international, received his fifth yellow card of the season in the recent 4-0 defeat to Millwall, triggering an automatic one-match ban.

Having been a consistent presence in the first team with 15 appearances across all competitions, Paterson’s absence adds to the challenges faced by Wednesday.

In their recent match against Millwall, he played as a right wing back, contributing to the team’s fourth defeat in five games under Röhl.

Currently positioned at the bottom of the table with only six points from 16 matches, Wednesday trails Huddersfield Town by nine points.

Röhl emphasized the importance of looking ahead and moving forward, expressing the need for rigorous training in the coming weeks.

Despite their challenging position in the league, Röhl remains optimistic about the team’s chances of staying in the league if they give their best effort.

In addition to Paterson’s suspension, striker Michael Smith was also absent in the last match due to injury. Röhl confirmed that Smith was not ready to play, and he hopes the striker will be available for the next game.

Sheffield Wednesday is scheduled to face Wayne Rooney’s Birmingham City on November 25 at St Andrew’s. Following this match, they have a home double-header against Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers.
