Former Sheffield United midfielder Lee Hendrie has had his say on Sheffield Wednesday’s promotion chances.

A hard-fought Ligue 1 season is expected with likely suitors offered by the former Aston Villa man.

Hendrie said: “You look at people like Wycombe and look at what Gareth Ainsworth has done again, MK Dons with Liam Manning was fantastic – a really good team to watch with young players.

“I think Michael Duff will do an amazing job at Barnsley. I’m such a fan of the work he’s done at Cheltenham with his progression, to see him go up to League 1 and then come up against Barnsley, I think he’ll do a great job. the low.

Moore’s Owls added a goal threat to their squad by stealing Michael Smith from Rotherham United and helped give their defense a new look, with goalkeeper David Stockdale signing from Hillsborough alongside centre-halves Ben Heneghan and Michael Ihiekwe.

Will Vaulks came into the team’s midfield to add more quality experience to the Championship.

“I’m going to put people like Ipswich, MK Dons, Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday in there and I think Wycombe will be there,” Hendrie said.

“It’s hard to say who’s who in this, but I would have Barnsley as one of my favorites to get promoted.

“There are very good football teams in Ligue 1. I don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s going to be difficult to call because there are so many big clubs in there.

“There are clubs that will go to Sheffield Wednesday and it’s cup finals for clubs that don’t have the budget and stature of other clubs.”
