It's great to be back

17 March 2022

Dominic Iorfa spoke of his delight at being back on the pitch for Wednesday after returning from a five-month injury lay-off.

The defender played every minute of the Owls’ midweek 1-1 draw with Accrington at Hillsborough and is wanting to push on as we enter the business end of the season.

The 26-year-old said: “It’s great to be back doing what I love best and that’s being out on the pitch with the boys and hopefully we can get over the line.

“I’m hoping that’s me done injury-wise, the last injury was a freak one and I want to put all that behind me and play and enjoy my football.


“I’d worked so hard towards getting back to my best but you have to be positive and I knew what I went through the first time, so I was better prepared mentally.”

From having a makeshift back three at times this season, recent injury returns and January signings have given manager Darren Moore plenty of options in defence.

Jordan Storey has become a mainstay in the Owls’ backline since arriving on loan from Preston in January and Iorfa spoke highly of his defensive partner.

He added: “Jordan has been brilliant, I’ve been watching from the side and I’ve been really impressed.


“It shows the stature of the club and the gaffer that he left the Championship to join us in our fight for promotion.

“There’s lots of competition and it’s a very healthy thing. In training you know you have to be at your best and the same in games because you know you have some quality players who can take that place.”

Wednesday travel to Gillingham on Saturday hoping to return to winning ways, and Iorfa is adamant any success the Owls have this season is in our own hands.

The former Wolves man continued: “The form guide is so strong at the top end of the table, but we can only focus on ourselves, because if we win our games we will be fine.”
