Turner Supporting Owls
Everton stopper Iain Turner admits he would 'love it' if Wednesday grabbed a place in the Championship play-offs this term, and revealed he loved his eleven-match stint at Hillsborough.
The Scottish stopper was recalled by the Goodison Park club after the Owls' victory over Coventry last weekend and is set to feature for David Moyes' men for their clash with Manchester United this weekend with Tim Howard ineligible to feature.
And the young Scot is relishing the chance to prove himself in the top flight, heaping praise on the Wednesday players and staff for helping him to get in to his current form.
'It was quite a successful couple of months. I played eleven games and we were eleven games undefeated so I am happy with that,' he told the official Everton site.
'There are some quality boys there. They had a few bad games before I got there but they were due a good run and luckily I was there for it.
'It is a huge club and you can see that. I think the crowds were averaging at around 25,000 so they are very well-supported and with a very big tradition as well. They were brilliant to me and we had some good results so the fans were quality while I was there.
'Brian Laws took a chance on me, because as a goalkeeper I am not very well proven just yet. He gave me a chance and I thought I did quite well for him.'
And Turner has revealed he will be following the Wednesday result on Saturday and hoping his former teammates beat Birmingham and go on to snatch a place in the play-offs.
He added: 'I'd love it for them if they were to get into the play-offs. They are two points off and it is a very tight group of teams.'
