Reda raring to go

29 August 2013


Reda Johnson is delighted to be back in the first team frame and eagerly anticipating the trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday.


The popular left back missed the first three league games of the season and returned last weekend against Millwall, marking his maiden appearance with a goal in the 2-2 draw.


And Johnson has revealed he sees the 90 minutes posted versus the Lions as a starting point for the campaign.


He said: “I am feeling good and it is great to be back in the team. I have been very frustrated because no one enjoys being injured.


“I need to get 100 per cent match fit and that will come. I miss not playing and I do not want to be in the treatment room.


“I want to be out on the pitch with my team mates and playing for the supporters. I love Sheffield Wednesday.”


The Benin international is in the final year of his contract after joining the Owls in January 2011. While the immediate focus remains on cementing his slot back in the first team, Reda is also keen to extend his S6 stay.


Johnson added: “Listen, this club is set up for the Premier League and that is where I and we want to be.


“Everyone has been so good to me at Sheffield Wednesday and I would like to stay here as long as possible and hopefully into the Premier League.


“But first we concentrate on moving up the Championship because this is a very strong division. Last season we did not finish far away from the play-offs but not too far from relegation also.


“We have to make sure we are heading the right way up the table.”
