Sheffield Wednesday will be without Jon-Paul McGovern until Christmas after he tore a thigh muscle in a reserve clash.
The former Sheffield United man went into the midweek reserve clash cautiously, but ended up doing more harm than good.
McGovern will now miss lining-up against his former club this weekend and manager Paul Sturrock has bemoaned his absence.
"He felt something but wanted to play in the reserve game," explained Sturrock.
"He came in the next day and a scan shows he has a wee tear.
"It's a big blow to him and to me because I was looking forward to him coming back."
