Carlisle's Simek Aims To Dent Owls
Former Wednesday defender Frank Simek will return to Hillsborough this weekend - looking to get one over his former club with new side Carlisle United.
The American right-back was allowed to leave Wednesday at the end of last season after Owls boss Alan Irvine decided against offering him a new contract.
But he wasted no time in finding a new club, with Wednesday's League One rivals Carlisle snapping him up on a free transfer over the summer.
And Simek has been a big hit with the United fans since making the switch, having helped the Cumbrians to second-place in the league table - making Saturday's clash an early season top-of-the-table affair.
He's also eased Carlisle fans' frustrations as losing left-back Ian Harte to Championship side Reading over the summer thanks to his top-drawer showings for United.
But the familiar Hillsborough cries of 'USA, USA' will be few and very far between come 3pm on Saturday.
Simek will no doubt get a warm reception by Wednesdayites before kick-off, but that's as far as it goes as Wednesday look to overcome their visitors to retain their spot at the top.
