Owls’ time to shine

28 October 2014

Former Wednesday striker Clinton Morrison has told the club’s official website that the only way is up for the Owls.

Since his departure from Hillsborough at the end of the 2011/12 promotion-winning term, Morrison has been back to watch his former club on numerous occasions in the Championship.

And one thing that stands out for the ex-Palace forward is the progress.

After two challenging seasons in the second tier, Wednesday have made a good start to 2014/15 and are four points off the play-offs after 14 games.

Boasting one of the meanest defences in the division, Morrison believes that things will click in the final third given the attacking talent at the club, and once they do, Wednesday will fly.

He said: “I’ve come to watch Sheffield Wednesday a few times since I’ve left the club.

“I’ve watched them a lot this season and they have put in some good results and have done well.

“I think you have to give credit to Stuart Gray for the team he is putting together.

“They work hard together and have a strong defensive unit.

“I think the club can kick on now. They are in good shape, have a good manager, the chairman has backed him and has been rewarded.”

Morrison, whose last league goal for Wednesday came against Charlton at The Valley, is without a club at present after a spell in League One with Colchester but said his boots are not yet hung up.

“I’ve still got the hunger, I’ve been training with Port Vale and just waiting to see what happens next,” he said.

“I’ve been doing media work and I went to Ireland to do work with the internationals, so I’ve still got that hunger.

“That’s what I want to do when I’ve finished football, I like talking on TV and talking about football.

“Hopefully you’ll see me playing back at Hillsborough one day, which would be a nice way to sign off!”
