Yorkshire news Sheffield Wednesday Q&A live - EFL case, Reach and Wickham MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - Owls writer Dom Howson answers readers and fans' key questions
Breaking News ! Sheffield Wednesday have lifted some of the gloom around Hillsborough following their unbeaten start to life after football's coronavirus-enforced break. Garry Monk's side have accumulated four points from their two matches since the Championship's restart, drawing at home to Nottingham Forest before claiming a deserved win on the road at Bristol City. Monk insists there is plenty of work to do but the Owls are in good spirits ahead of tomorrow's clash with title-chasing West Bromwich Albion. Although Wednesday currently occupy 13th position, the threat of a potential points deduction is still hanging over the club due to their ongoing English Football League misconduct charge. With seven matches remaining, the Owls are 10 points clear of the relegation zone. But if Wednesday are found guilty of the allegation by an independent disciplinary commission, potential punishments range from a transfer embargo or fine to a points deduction of nine to 21 points.

Is he playing his way to a new contract? Also what’s the latest with Adam Reach? Are you expecting him to start anytime soon especially with the number of games about to be played in a short space of time?DH: Thanks for the two questions, Mark.I have been really impressed with Kieran Lee. I thought he was busy against Forest and was excellent on Sunday. He covered so much ground and helped provide the platform for Barry Bannan to show his quality with the ball. If Lee carries on playing at this level, I definitely believe he is playing his way to a new contract.
.As for Reach, he is just waiting for an opportunity to stake his claim. It is hard to leave out Jacob Murphy or Kadeem Harris right now. They have been excellent in the wing back positions.But I am sure Reach will get his game time in the final seven matches. It is a packed schedule so Reach will certainly have a part to play in the run-in.16:00KEY EVENTThe latest on the EFL chargeCraig Charlesworth asks: When is the outcome of the EFL hearing going to be announced and do you think we have any chance whatsoever of winning?DH: The case is still ongoing, Craig. It is hardly surprising given the complexity of the charge.The outcome of the hearing could possibly be this week but it wouldn’t shock me if we don’t find out until next week.I have not been given an indication on what it will go.
