Drew Features For Reserves

Young Owls striker Drew Talbot played the final half an hour of the reserves' 1-1 draw with Walsall as he continues his recovery to full fitness following a knee injury.

Talbot made his long-awaited return from a knee injury which saw him sidelined for 18-months this season but the former Barnsley youth product had a further set-back as he made a substitute appearance in the clash with Leicester City in November.

But he made his step-up to a return to the Wednesday first team on Wednesday afternoon as Graham Coughlan netted a late leveller to give the reserves a share of the spoils in the clash with Walsall.

It's hoped that Talbot will make a full return to first team action over the hectic Christmas period after making just seven appearances for the club this season.

His last goal came in the League One play-off final which saw the Owls brush aside Hartlepool United at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in May 2005.

He'd add a different dimension to our attack even though he may not be first choice. Always good coming off the bench so its good to see him back.

Agreed. I think Laws will only give him one more chance to prove himself though without getting injured before he leaves. Shame really, hope he doesn't go down the same route as Matt Hamshaw...

It is a catch 22 situation. Do you hold onto Drew hoping that one day he will be free from injury, and scoring 20 goals a season in the Premiership, or do you give him one more chance, and if he breaks down, say goodbye ? We have learnt over the years that clinging onto players in the hope they might be back to how they once were is a mistake, we allways dreamed that David Hirst would one day come out of Hospital, and become that lean scoring machine he was between 1990 & 1992, but every time he came back, he had lost another 10%

I wish him well, but after we play you.
