Striker Welcomes Owls Return

Striker Welcomes Owls Return

Wednesday's forgotten striker David Graham has revealed that he's glad to be back at Hillsborough and wants to fight for a first-team place after returning from his loan spell at Bradford.

The former Wigan and Torquay striker has had a torrid time at Valley Parade netting just three goals in 17 starts for the Bantams, and left the club to a chorus of jeers from the City faithful.

And the Scot is relieved that he is back in S6 and wants to make amends with the club after his slow start under Paul Sturrock.

He told Wednesday World: 'I'm glad to be back. I've been away for a while, it's basically a year since I played for Wednesday and I'm looking to fight to get back in the team.

'I'm very determined coming back here. It's going to be hard to get back in the team, but I'm willing to work hard to do that.

'My time at Bradford began well, we were flying to start with, but hit a bad patch and it has been a struggle ever since. The Huddersfield spell was good, we got to the play-offs and I scored a few goals, so I was pretty pleased with my contribution.'

But the 28-year-old will face a tough task in winning over his new boss, Brian Laws, and taking the place of Marcus Tudgay, Steve Maclean and Deon Burton who are all producing the goods in the Wednesday attack.

Graham has made just 19 starts for the Owls since making his £250,000 move from Wigan Athletic in 2005, but enjoyed a successful loan deal at Huddersfield Town last season.

It will be interesting to see him back in action for us if he gets his chance. It's do or die.

I think that Sturrock never knew how to play him. He is not a striker, he should either play in the hole between midfield and strikers, or down the right as back up to wade small
