Wednesday prospect: This season has been 'really frustrating'

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday's Caolan Lavery has had a difficult season.

Sheffield Wednesday youngster Caolan Lavery has admitted to the Sheffield Star that this season has been a frustrating one. 

Lavery missed part of the campaign with injury and, as a result, he lost his place in the side and had to go out on loan to Chesterfield recently. 

On this temporary spell in League One he performed admirably, but the 22-year-old has suggested that he would have preferred to stay at Hillsborough. 

“It’s been a really frustrating season for me, particularly after doing well last year," he said. 

“But you have to learn to cope with these things because they happen in football. For me, it’s about making up for lost time and getting back on track."

Since returning from loan at Chesterfield, Lavery has played an important role for Wednesday and he has forced his way back into Stuart Gray's starting line-up.

He will be hoping to keep this place now and prove that he can have a part to play during next term, where Wednesday will be looking to secure promotion.

The Owls will have money to spend in the summer and Lavery is likely to find the competition for places hots up after Gray makes his intended recruitments.

Lavery has made seven appearances for Wednesday so far this season, and he will be hoping to get into double-figures before the campaign ends in May.
