Drew Ready To Punish Owls

Drew Ready To Punish Owls

Former Wednesday striker Drew Talbot is ready to bag his first goal since moving to Luton Town - as Wednesday travel to Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night.

Talbot was deemed surplus to requirements at Hillsborough by boss Brian Laws and was allowed to leave for pastures new as Town boss Mike Newell tabled a £250,000 bid for the striker.

The 20-year-old has yet to net for the Hatters as Mike Newell's men hover dangerously close to the Championship drop zone - but he hopes to open his account against his former club tomorrow night.

'I've been saving it for when we play Wednesday,' he told the Sheffield Star.

'It will be strange lining up against them. I think it will be enjoyable, to be honest. I got on great with the lads but I'll be looking to put one over on them. That's how it is in football.

'Off the field, you can be the best of friends; on the field, you don't have any friends.'

Talbot was rested for Luton's 0-0 stalemate with Stoke City at the weekend, but has featured three times for the Hatters since making his move down the M1 in the January transfer window.

He was a big hit with Owls fans - securing Wednesday's victory in the League One play-off final with a superb goal in the 4-2 victory over Hartlepool which saw them return to the Championship.

And the Barnsley-born product will continue to look out for Wednesday's results in the hope that they do well - after Tuesday night's match, of course.

He added: 'Wednesday gave me my chance to get back into the game. They'll always have a special place in my heart; I always look out for their result. And the play-off final will always remain with me. It's going to taker some day to eclipse that.'

It would be typical for him to score against us tomorrow but I'[ve heard he's not really impressing down there

he's in a very similar position to Clarke, clearly has some potential and ability but currently has no match fitness or confidence
