      Darren Moore has revealed that George Byers was pulled due to a dead game in Sheffield Wednesday’s win over Morecambe, while Dominic Iorfa’s absence was a precaution.

      The Owls continued their fantastic season by recording a comfortable 3-0 win over the struggling Shrimpers, setting a club clean sheet record in the process.

      So while overall it was a very good night, there were some concerns, notably the departure of Byers at halftime, and it came as a surprise when the teams announced that Iorfa was not on the team.

      However, speaking to Yorkshire Live, Moore gave an update on the duo and was encouraging as he indicated that neither player should be out for an extended period.

      I think it was a dead leg (for Byers). He ran into the center back, but we’ll see in the morning. Dom was kicked in the calf on Saturday. The bruises tightened so we wouldn’t risk it.”

      It remains to be seen if the players will be available for the next game coming up at home to MK Dons this weekend.

      The verdict

      It was a concern for Wednesday when Iorfa was not involved as we know they lack depth in central defence, but those who played tonight were very confident, helping Moore’s men to another clean sheet.

      With Byers, it seems like it’s nothing too serious and it was a sensible decision to remove it.

      So this is a positive update for the Owls support, who will be delighted with how the team is performing right now as they push for promotion.
