Sheffield Wednesday are set to be boosted by the return of Jermaine Johnson later in the week.

''JJ' enjoyed a fruitful pre-season for Gary Megson's side before a knee injury against Stoke City ended the winger's progress, forcing the 31-year-old Jamaican international into the treatment room.

However, Megson confirmed to the official Owls website that Johnson is close to a training return ahead of tonight's Carling Cup clash against Blackburn, and could be in Npower League One contention in the coming weeks.


"Hopefully, JJ will be back training by the end of the week. He had a really good pre-season and I felt for the lad when he picked up the injury against Stoke," said the former West Brom boss.

"He did all the running in pre-season, he never once gave up and he looked really sharp in the games.

"He wants to be back out there as soon as possible and it will be great to have him back."

Wednesday currently lay in mid-table in the third tier after four games this term, with the side currently undefeated at Hillsborough but yet to claim a point away from home.
