JJ Makes Welcome Return

JJ Makes Welcome Return

Wednesday's wing wizard Jermaine Johnson made his return to action in the blue and white stripes last night for the reserves - and scored in the 2-1 defeat to Birmingham City.

The Jamaican international has had to endure a stop-start few months since joining the Owls from Bradford City in the January transfer window as he become Brian Laws' first permanent signing since he arrived at the club.

Johnson had to sit out the first four games after picking up a suspension in his final games for the Bantams and made just four appearances for the club before having another spell on the sidelines.

The 26-year-old picked up an injury in the Owls' 1-1 draw with Plymouth Argyle at the start of March and his return to action was put on hold after contracting chicken pox which ruled him out of the Easter weekend clashes and Friday nights encounter with West Brom.

But Johnson completed almost an hour of the 2-1 reserve match defeat to Birmingham City and also netted the Owls' consolation goal after some good work between the Jamaican and trialist Lee Kerr five minutes in to the second half.

Mickael Forsell opened the scoring for the visitors after 13 minutes and the former Chelsea and Crystal Palace man made it two just before the half-hour to put Brum on their way to victory at Hillsborough on Monday night.

John Hills, Sean McAllister, Yoann Folly and Burton O'Brien were the other main first team squad players to be involved while hot young prospects Rocky Lekaj and Mark Beevers also played the full 90 minutes.

Wednesday Reserves: Adamson; McMenamin, Liversidge, Beevers, Hills; McAllister, Folly, O'Brien, Lekaj; Kerr, Johnson (Bradley 59). Subs not used: O'Donnell, Kay, Boden, McClements.

BCFC Reserves: Legzdins, Howland, Price, Pearce, Campion, Dicker (Wilson 78) Kavanagh, Kilkenny, Aluko (Moses-Garvey 89), Forssell, Burge. Subs not used: Joyce, Krysiak, Green.
