League investigate Owls loan fiasco
The Football League are investigating after Sheffield Wednesday broke the rules by naming six loan players in their squad for Saturday's match with the Potters.
Stoke are hoping that the League will deduct the point from the Owls and award the match to the Potters, but we'd not expect the League to do anything so dramatic.
Previous rulings would lead us to suppose that they'd just be fined as only four of the six actually played during the match, but Stoke have a right to be bitter after they were forced to drop loanees, Paul Gallagher and Gabby Zakuani to comply with the rules.
With Sheffield Wednesday just in the relegation places, their point was just as vital to them as the three points were to us. So whatever the outcome, no-one is going to be happy.
