Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan is hoping that the reoccurrence of his groin injury will not end his season according to the Sheffield Star.

The 28-year-old Airdrie born midfielder lasted just 31 minutes of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Fulham at Hillsborough before being replaced by Jacob Butterfield after sustaining what looked to be a reoccurrence of the groin injury which previously sidelined him for more than three months.

It has been confirmed that Bannan will miss his side’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Tuesday evening while the player faces a nervous wait to find out whether he will play for The Owls again this season.

The Scot is hoping to return to the Wednesday side sooner rather than later but the player is unlikely to be risked unless fully fit with the club’s season all but over.

Bannan has made 27 appearances in all competitions for Wednesday so far this season in which he has scored one goal. Since returning to the side in the 2-1 victory at Leeds United last month, Bannan has helped his side to three wins in four matches.

Sheffield Wednesday signed Bannan in August 2015 from Crystal Palace and the player has gone on to play an influential role for the club during his time at Hillsborough.
