Ben Heneghan hasn’t played for Sheffield Wednesday since back in October, but as the season comes to an end he’s taken a big step forward on his return to fitness.

The Owls defender sustained a serious knee injury away at Lincoln City in the early stages of the season, and Darren Moore didn’t take long revealing the fact that he would unfortunately miss the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

Now, with just one game left of said campaign, Heneghan is stepping up his recovery, and has been out on the field at Hillsborough doing ball work once again.

His manager, who started the centre back in 10 League One games before his injury, says that he’s delighted that the 29-year-old is on schedule for a preseason return to full training.

Speaking to The Star, Moore said of the defender’s progress, “I’m delighted, I’ve had the injury that Ben suffered, so I know now that this is the end of the road in recovery – the part where you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. He’s back on the grass, doing ball work, with the sports scientists, so he’s ticking the boxes until he’s ready to come back with the players.

“It’s been a long road for him, but he’s nearing the end of it now.”
