The Owls were dealt a pre-match blow after it became clear that neither Sam Hutchinson nor Massimo Luongo would be available, and when the full squad was named there was also no room for Dominic Iorfa in the group of 18 players.
Speaking to the media after the dramatic 3-2 win at Stadium MK, Darren Moore gave an update on all the players who missed out – but was unable to give too much information on Harlee Dean.

He said: “We think (along with Dean) it’s a calf hit so we’ll be looking into it over the next 24 hours. He had to retire… We also suffered a few injuries in training, with Sam Hutchinson getting a knock and Massimo Luongo having a small chest infection which we didn’t want to risk him with due to the scale of the game. With Dominic Iorfa it was also a bit of a blow, so we had to reshuffle the peloton in the last 24 to 48 hours.
And could any of them feature against Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday night?
“Maybe, depending on his condition, we could have mass,” the Owls boss explained. “We’re not considering having Sam or Dom, but maybe Massimo – we’ll see how he is.”
Moore also confirmed Bannan was taken off due to cramps, but there doesn’t appear to be any concern about his fitness for the upcoming game.
