. The former Chelsea midfielder, who spent time on trial at Wednesday in the summer of 2019, faces a spell on the sidelines through injury. “It's not good news and it looks like he will be out for a little while," said Manning. "It's a real shame because Josh had a really good pre-season - he looked strong, his running was good and he looked confident too. “It's a setback but he has been through it before. He has that resilience, toughness and emotional control you need to focus on getting back. He is someone we will continue to lean on with his experience because he is a big part of what we do. “It's a big blow but we have to respond with a program to get him back as quickly and safely as possible.” Talented forward Mo Eisa is a long-term absentee.
