Sheffield Wednesday boss Gary Megson admits he is desperate to add more firepower to his side and the Owls are in talks with former Newcastle United striker Lomana LuaLua. The 30-year-old, who was at Hillsborough on Saturday to watch Wednesday beat Scunthorpe United 3-2 in League One, is a free agent after leaving Cypriot club Omonia. Gary Megson: “I think that’s seven games that we have played this season in the space of 21 days and now we have got another one coming on Tuesday, so you don’t get much respite. “We have been trying for ages to bring a striker in. “But having spoke to everyone concerned here, one of the reasons we are where we are is because we have signed a lot of players – historically in the last 10, 12 years – that others don’t want. “They end up here, it becomes a bit of a rest home and it becomes a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy: we are not good enough, we struggle, we go do it again, we struggle. “We are now going for players that maybe other clubs want. That makes life more difficult.”
