Owls sweating on Madine

29 April 2011 11:00
Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine is doubtful for his side's final away game of the season at Bristol Rovers. Madine was forced out of Monday's home win over Swindon with a calf injury and manager Gary Megson is waiting for the results of a scan to determine the full extent of the injury. Should Madine fail to make it, Clinton Morrison and Paul Heffernan will be vying to start up front alongside the in-form Neil Mellor, who fired his 19th and 20th goals of the season against Swindon. Central defender Danny Batth, on loan from Wolves, sat out Monday's win through illness and remains doubtful, so Reda Johnson is expected to continue his partnership with Rob Jones at the heart of defence. Megson has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a fifth win in seven matches.
