AN UNIDENTIFIED virus is sweeping through Sheffield Wednesday, the club said today.
The Championship side has notified the Football League of the illness which is afflicting "several members" of Brian Laws' squad prior to Saturday's game against Bristol City.

Fans will be hoping it is not swine flu - and that is not a condition The Owls have mentioned.

The Owls though admit they will now be travelling to Ashton Gate with a squad significantly weakened by the withdrawal of key players.

In addition, two more players are showing symptoms of the virus, leaving manager Laws with a selection headache for the City clash.

He said: "Several players are already affected and two more appear to be carrying the symptoms of the virus. We have notified the Football League of the situation as a matter of course and will continue to provide any further necessary updates.

"I can assure our supporters and the authorities that we have taken every precaution possible to prevent the virus spreading, including booking the players into separate rooms at our hotel for the Bristol City match."

Laws has drafted in and allocated shirt numbers to Owls youngsters Nick Wood (21), Max Wragg (26), Callum Harrison (27) and Nathan Modest (2 ahead of the Ashton Gate game.

*Meanwhile Ipswich boss Roy Keane set to make bid for Wednesday defender Richard Wood.

*Blackburn striker Jason Roberts has become the Premier League's club latest star to suffer from suspected swine flu.

Roberts is unlikely to be available for Rovers' clash at Manchester United on Saturday after showing symptoms of the virus, which had already been contracted by team-mates David Dunn and Christopher Samba, as well as boss Sam Allardyce.

If it wasn’t for that green tag under my name I might be tempted , hasn’t another club had this problem as well, read something about it but cant remember the team.

Sorry CB, I didn't mean to cause any offence, my apologies, and I trust that your mate's son will be OK.

All that I can say is that I know the meaning of the word sorry, having said that there was no hate in the post.

I think he knew there was no malice meant ( I was myself waiting for the first comment)
My D.I.L. had it a few weeks ago and said it was the worst she had ever felt in her life and a m8s wife has it now
