300 career appearances for Palmer

29 June 2020

Liam Palmer praised the adaptability of him teammates following Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The defender, who made his 300th career appearance against the Robins, has been playing as part of a back three since the restart and is delighted with how the Owls are looking.

Palmer said: “It’s a big three points today, we desperately needed a win and I think we also deserved one last time out.

“It was good to see it out today and take some momentum from the last match into this one.

“I think everyone has used the lockdown to look at how you can improve. We had a good week of just pure fitness and running, which I think was good for the boys.

“Then we got into our shape and we’re playing a new system now that we’re all buying into and it seems to be going well so far.

“It’s a slightly different position for me personally but we’ve got the personnel in the team to adapt to that.

“Different lads have filled into certain positions like Jacob and Kadeem on the sides and they’ve done that seamlessly, so I think it suits our style of play.”

Palmer’s 300-game landmark takes into account his loan spell with Tranmere in 2012/13, but the boyhood Wednesdayite is delighted to have reached the milestone whilst playing for the Owls.

The Scotland international added: “You look season on season and you just want to play as many games as possible.

“I’ve been fortunate in the last couple of seasons to have played a good number of matches, and obviously coming through the academy it makes that extra special.

“It’s nice, they are things to look back on when your career is done and I want to reach as many games as possible.”
