Midfielder may make quick return from injury
 
Sheffield Wednesday fans have been boosted by the news that Barry Bannan could be back in the squad for the Owls next game against Swansea on Saturday.
 
The influential midfielder sustained a groin injury in training last week and missed Saturday's defeat at Blackburn as a result. His absence, along with that of fellow midfield man Massimo Luongo was clearly felt as Garry Monk's side put in an under par performance, even through they were within a few minutes of claiming a positive result.
 
Bannan is expected to return to training this week but Luongo needs to have his injury assessed further in order to ascertain when he may be back in contention.
