Sheffield Wednesday drew 2-2 with Rotherham United on Saturday, with Dominic Iorfa netting deep into stoppage time to salvage a point for the Owls.
Steve Bruce has made a steady start to life as Wednesday boss and the performances have offered hope of a promotion push next season.
After taking a sabbatical from the game, Bruce quickly got to work in adding players to his squad on deadline day.
Iorfa arrived on loan from Wolves, whilst Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons arrived on temporary deals from Newcastle United.
Fernando Forestieri was dismissed during Saturday’s draw and that could be perfect for Aarons.
The 23-year-old hasn’t started a game for the Owls yet, but this could be the opportunity he has craved.
George Boyd played on the left-wing on Saturday but he could drop into a more central role to replace Forestieri; allowing Aarons the chance to take up a left-sided berth.
Aarons has made three substitute appearances so far.
His limited time on the pitch has restricted his impact however and he will be keen to show Newcastle what he can do.
Aarons does have 18 appearances for the Magpies under his belt but he has fallen down the pecking order.
At 23 there is still hope that he can have a future under Rafa Benitez at St. James’ Park.
Playing football at Hillsborough comes first, however.
Forestieri’s suspension could just open the door for Aarons to showcase his talent and play his way back into form.
