Talbot & Corr Return

Talbot & Corr Return

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has been boosted with the news that long-term absentees Drew Talbot and Barry Corr have resumed training this week alongside Steven Maclean.

The duo have been missing for long spells from the Owls squad after picking up major injuries, and although Sturrock won't be rushing them back to the first team, the sight of them on the training ground is a welcome sight after weeks of injury woe this term.

Sturrock told the official SWFC site: 'I can't use any other words except to say they have been injury prone in their careers. I've had a week chat to them about warm-ups, warm-downs, weight trainign and strengthening work to make sure they don't get injuries. They took that on board.'

Talbot hasn't featured for the Owls since netting the fourth and final goal in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over Hartlepool United in the League One play-off final at Cardiff. The Barnsley product is set to be eased back in to action after 16 months out.

Corr has been out of action since February and the Owls boss is also likely to take a similar route back to full fitness with the Irishman. Corr featured prematurely for the Owls last season after injuries took their toll.

Meanwhile, Steve Maclean returned to training on Tuesday morning after being sidelined since the Owls 1-1 draw with Burnely in which he netted the Owls penalty. The former Rangers and Scunthorpe United striker is desperate to feature in Saturday's clash with Derby County at Hillsborough.

Good news, maybe we'll have a full compliment of strikers available in the next few weeks? Can't wait to see Talbot back.

Excited at Talbot but dont think he'll ever be a first team player. Will offer something different coming off the bench though.
