A long time coming

5 December 2014

Every minute of game-time is vital for Owls striker Caolan Lavery.

A knee injury in pre-season forced the forward out of action from July but the 22-year-old made his first team comeback last weekend in the 2-1 win over Wigan.

Having burst onto the scene last season, Lavery wants to make up for lost time in 2014/15 and add to the attacking armoury of the Owls.

He said: “I’ve missed a lot of the season and every bit of game-time I get can only be a positive. I want to get my head down and get back in the team.

“It was a massive relief to step back out at Hillsborough. It was a long time coming and good to be out there.”

Now back in the fray, Lavery wants to put the injury completely behind him and focus on edging closer to Stuart Gray’s first team plans.

Lavery was an unused substitute at Huddersfield and made a late appearance from the bench against the Latics.

He added: “It’s difficult when you’re out because all you want to do is play football. But the injury is in the past.

“All the strikers here offer something different and when the gaffer decides I’m in, then I’ll be ready.”
