Palmer's challenge

30 July 2013

 

With the new season just days away, Liam Palmer has challenged himself to feature as often as possible for the Owls, starting on Saturday against QPR at Loftus Road.


The Scotland Under-21 international expressed his excitement for the new campaign and is out to stake a claim for regular football, despite tough competition in S6.


“There's four days left to go and I can’t wait to get going and hopefully get in the team for the first game.” Palmer said.


“Everything now is geared towards QPR on Saturday.


“Every player just wants to be involved on Saturday, especially because it’s the first game.”


After spending 2012/13 on loan at League 1 side Tranmere, the 21-year-old believes his 46 games under the belt for Rovers will serve him well going forward.


Palmer was a mainstay in the engine room at Prenton Park last term and feels he has come to back to Middlewood Road a stronger player.

 


He added: “Loan spells can work in your favour and hopefully I am proof of that.


“I am very thankful of Tranmere for giving me the games that they did because they are standing me in good stead.


“I need to keep progressing and play as many games as I can for Sheffield Wednesday.”


The Owls academy product has enjoyed a busy pre-season and has featured at right back in several of the Wednesday’s warm-up fixtures.


The versatile youngster, who is more accustomed to playing in central midfield, has taken well to his full back role and is now excited at the prospect of facing Harry Redknapp’s QPR on Saturday.


 “It’s a different position, you’ve got the game in front of you and you’ve got time on the ball which is a good thing. I’ve been able to get my crosses in and that’s what full backs have to do.


“It’s going to be a tough game with the players they have but football is a strange game and although we will go to Loftus Road as underdogs, we believe we can get a result.”
