Graham Good To Continue At Town

Graham Good To Continue At Town

Owls striker David Graham looks like a different player on-loan at Huddersfield Town - so we asked the Vital Sheffield Wednesday users whether it would be a good idea to re-call Graham from his loan spell. Here's what they thought...

A whopping 76 per cent of Wednesday fans thought the former Wigan striker was better off staying at the League One side, with the remaining 24 per cent calling for him to return to Hillsborough.

Graham has made a big impression at Huddersfield and has helped them climb to third place in the League One table - and a chance of gaining automatic promotion to the Championship. He's bagged six goals in nine games for the Terriers, which has led to some Owls fans calling for him to be re-called to the Owls squad.

The 76 per cent may be taking into account Graham's poor form at Hillsborough, which saw him score just two goals in 19 appearances since his move to S6 from Wigan Athletic. Deon Burton and Marcus Tudgay have also formed a good partnership up front for the Owls since their arrival in January, and with Steve Maclean back in contention for a starting place - the Owls may not require Graham in the battle against relegation.

There's also the argument that Graham has found his level in League One. His record at Torquay United between 2001 and 2004 is second to none, and shows how capable he is at scoring in the lower leagues. He's also in a team who are flying high at the top end of the league and have bag fulls of confidence at their disposal.

The remaining 24 per cent may see Graham as the ideal solution to the Owls problems in front of goal, despite the recent up turn of fortunes which saw Deon Burton among the scorers in the 2-0 victory over Preston North End at the weekend.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has highlighted the need to strengthen the squad in the battle against relegation, and has highlighted the attackers as a key area for strengthening. We all know the limitations of the wage and transfer budget, so to re-call Graham would be the sensible option financially.

With just seven games remaining until the end of the season it looks as though Paul Sturrock will let Graham stay at the Galpharm until the conclusion of the season at the end of April. What happens then is anyone's guess, but Town manager Peter Jackson has already shown his interest in the hitman.
