A special moment

27 December 2012


Owls loanee Mamady Sidibe has described his goal against Bolton as a special moment in his career.

The striker headed home the only goal of the game in the Boxing Day clash at the Reebok Stadium to help Wednesday record their third Championship success on the bounce.

The goal was Sidibe’s first since the 2009/10 season for his parent club Stoke after which time the striker has been hit by injuries at the Britannia Stadium.

But happy to be back playing and on the scoresheet, Sidibe said: “It’s been over two and half years since I have scored, so for me it was very special to score the only goal of the game.

“To be back playing is the most important thing but to score the goal that won us the game was a very special feeling.

“I’ve had many problems with injuries over the past few seasons so it was great to see the ball hit the back of the net.”

Sidibe’s loan stay with the Owls was extended on Christmas Eve to 19 January and the towering frontman is now looking forward to giving his all during his time at Hillsborough.

He added: “I’m here at Sheffield Wednesday to give 100 per cent, to fight for the club and to give everything I can.

“I think we are on the right road, we’ve won three games in a row and have kept three clean sheets so hopefully we can keep that going.

“You can see confidence is flowing in the team and the fighting spirit is high. But for me, it has been difficult over the past few seasons but I’ve kept going, I’m back playing again and I’m enjoying it.”
