Ex-Owls goalkeeper Lee Grant is looking forward to his return to Hillsborough this evening with Derby.
Grant spent three years in S6 between 2007 and 2010, making 145 appearances, and is set to line up against his former club tonight.
Assessing Wednesday from a distance, Grant is unsurprised by the club’s turnaround in form and believes the Owls will grow stronger and stronger under the guidance of Stuart Gray.
He said: “I worked with Stuart at Burnley and I am not surprised one bit that the players have responded to him.
“He has got good methods, is a really genuine and likeable guy, so I am not surprised that he has turned things around.”
The 31-year-old has been an ever-present for the Rams this season, firmly establishing himself as the Derby number one since his summer switch from Burnley .
Speaking ahead of the clash with the Owls, the goalkeeper has spoken highly of his time with Wednesday, saying:
“There has been such a huge turnaround in playing staff that there probably won’t be many people left from when I was playing there.
"But it is certainly a club that I respect hugely; I always had a strong relationship with the supporters.
“Going to Sheffield Wednesday was a really good part of my career, I had three really good years there. It is a club that set me on my way and gave me a real run of games.”
