Sheffield Wednesday’s Danny Rohl confirms a ‘huge fitness boost’ as Owl and key man reportedly back ahead of Plymouth Argyle’s clash…

Plymouth Argyle has received a significant injury boost in preparation for their crucial match against Sheffield Wednesday this week. The Owls are set to face the Pilgrims on Wednesday evening in a game of great importance for both teams. The home side is aware that they could fall 12 points behind Danny Röhl’s side if they fail to secure a victory.

It’s worth noting that it has been nearly 15 years since Sheffield Wednesday managed to win against Plymouth on the latter’s home turf. All three of their victories against Plymouth since 2009 occurred on their home ground at S6. This upcoming game presents an opportunity to change that trend and, ideally, secure their first win of the 2023/24 season.

However, the challenge won’t be easy. Plymouth Argyle, led by Steven Schumacher, demonstrated their resilience by earning a point against West Bromwich Albion over the weekend. Notably, the match saw the return of two key players: former Owl Lewis Gibson and star goalkeeper Mike Cooper. Both successfully completed 90 minutes without any issues.

Gibson had been sidelined for just three games due to a knock, but for Cooper, the West Brom game marked the end of an eight-month absence following a serious knee injury he sustained while playing against Sheffield Wednesday in Sheffield last season.

Having both players back in the lineup against Sheffield Wednesday is a welcomed development for Schumacher, as Plymouth aims to break a four-game winless streak in the second tier and avoid losing three consecutive home games for the first time since 2021.

The match between the two sides is scheduled for 7.45 pm on Wednesday evening, and it could potentially offer Röhl’s side an opportunity to climb off the bottom of the table if other results go in their favor.
