EXCLUSIVE: JJ Relishing Derby

EXCLUSIVE: JJ Relishing Derby

Wednesday new-boy Jermaine Johnson has revealed he can't wait to get out on the pitch on Saturday and take part in his first Yorkshire derby of the season against Leeds United.

The former Bradford winger knows all about big local derbies during his time in West Yorkshire against Huddersfield Town - but it will be the first time the Jamaican has tasted the M1 between Wednesday and Leeds, and he can't wait.

'This is going to be my first big Yorkshire derby because I didn't get to play in the game for Bradford against Huddersfield this season,' he exclusively told Vital Sheffield Wednesday.

'So I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be a big game for the team and for the fans and we need to carry our work on from the last match and hopefully get a win.'

The Jamaican international has played just two matches for the Owls despite signing midway through the January transfer window after serving a four-match ban for a sending-off in his final match for the Bantams.

And although having Wednesday fans on the edges of their seats in the 3-2 victory over Southend at the weekend - the winger has admitted he notices a vast difference in the pace of the play in the Championship.

He continued: 'It's really quick in this division so it's going to take time to adapt but at the moment I'm just trying to do my best for the club and for myself as well. The guys have got on really well with me and made it easier for me here so it's been easy to get on with my football.

And JJ is enjoying the extra competition for a spot on the right hand side of the Owls midfield from summer recruit Wade Small.

'It's my first time really competing against someone else on the right wing with Wade so it's good for me, it motivates me to keep going.' said Johnson.

He hasn't taken much time to adapt, he waltzed past players last week and hopefully can do the same against L**ds!
