Talbot Eyes Injury-Free Run

Talbot Eyes Injury-Free Run

Young Wednesday striker Drew Talbot is targeting an injury-free new year as he looks towards regaining full fitness following his return to action in his substitute appearance against Birmingham at the weekend.

Talbot suffered a huge set-back after the Owls won promotion to the Championship via the League One play-offs back in 2005 and has struggled to regain full fitness following a number of niggling injuries which have hindered his chances at a run in the first team.

But the 20-year-old is hopeful the new year will bring a change of luck which will see him feature in the famous blue and white stripes more often.

He told the Sheffield Star: 'I just have to be patient, wait until I get my chance and, fingers crossed, when I do get my chance do something that makes the gaffer consider me for a starting place.'

Talbot is wary he will have a battle on his hands to get a place in the first-team with the January transfer window opening and the possibility of a new striker arriving at S6 - not to mention the fine form of strike partners Deon Burton and Marcus Tudgay who've helped shoot the Owls up the table.

He continued: 'I've just had to bide my time and wait for the gaffer to put me back in the squad, but the lads have been doing great. Deon and Marcus have been doing great, and Macca has been coming on and doing well.'

The Barnsley-born striker has made just five starts for the Owls, netting four goals for the club after being used mainly as a 'super-sub' during his time in S6.
