Whelan Looks For City Revenge

Whelan Looks For City Revenge

Wednesday midfielder Glenn Whelan is looking for more than just progression to the next round of the FA Cup on Sunday, as he looks to get revenge on the club who let him go in 2004.

The 22-year-old made just one appearance for Manchester City during his four-year stint at the club as a youngster - in a UEFA Cup tie against Welsh club TNS - and Whelan is hoping the Owls can take advantage of City's poor away form.

He told the Sun: 'The thing about this FA Cup game is that it gives us an opportunity to go up against a Premiership side. We've got a chance as well because City haven't done particularly well away from home.

'When you're in the Championship you want to test yourselves against the Premiership sides and this game is a good test for us. We were disappointed not to get anything against Hull last week but if we beat City in the cup, it will give everybody a lift. We're looking for a good cup run.'

But Whelan revealed that City will be up for the cup after moving away from the Premiership trap door in the last few weeks.

'The pressure is one them. I don't think we're expected to win - that's a good thing for us. They've won three on the bounce and they're like quite a few Premiership clubs - if they're not going to be challenging for the title or fighting against relegation, they set their sights on a good run in the cup.' he added.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international has been a big hit with Owls fans this season after being placed on the transfer-list by former boss Paul Sturrock at the start of the season.

Boss Brian Laws has now taken the youngster off the list and hopes he will be an integral part of the Owls side that is currently pushing for a place in the Championship play-offs after an impressive upturn in results over the last few months.
