Clarke Makes Owls Debut

Clarke Makes Owls Debut

New Wednesday signing Leon Clarke made his first appearance in the famous blue and white stripes in the Owls reserve's 4-1 drubbing at home to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday afternoon.

The striker, who signed for the Owls for £250,000 from Wolves on Monday, played the first 45 minutes for Wednesday to pick his fitness up in preparation for the crunch Championship clash with Roy Keane's Sunderland team on Saturday.

Richard Wood also stepped up his return to full fitness by taking part in the first half with Clarke, and could feature on Saturday with the pending suspensions of Frank Simek and Tommy Spurr at the back.

There was further good news for on-looking Owls boss Brian Laws as Steve Adams completed the full 90 minutes successfully while the highly-rated Mark Beevers and Barry Corr played, and David Graham also netted his first goal since returning from his loan spell at Bradford.

Left-back John Hills didn't feature in the side, nor did Madjid Bougherra - but both defenders could be being rested as they look to be part of the squad for the visit of the Mackems on Saturday.

Former Sheffield United striker Jack Lester got Forest off to a flying start while David Graham cut the deficit, obly to see Scott Dobie restore the two-goal cushion for the visitors and Patrece Liburd wrapped up to the victory.

Lets hope he wasn't at fault for any of the goals, eh? :)
