Sheffield Wednesday new boy Isgrove explains what went wrong on his debut

Southampton youngster Lloyd Isgrove has opened up about his Sheffield Wednesday debut.

Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lloyd Isgrove has told the club's official site that his debut didn't go entirely to plan. 

Isgrove started for Wednesday against Rotherham United in their last fixture, but he was hoping to receive more of the ball in his first appearance.

He says that he would have liked to have got more service and he expects to be more involved this weekend, if given the nod, when the side take on Huddersfield Town. 

“It was a mad game against Rotherham, I got 60 minutes under my belt and it was a good experience," he said. “It was nice to get out there with the lads and to get the win.

“I didn’t have as much of the ball as I wanted because it was a tight game but with us being at home, it will be up to us to take it to Huddersfield and that will suit me.

“We will be looking to start well, play on the front foot and that should give me the freedom to run at players and use my pace.”

Wednesday beat Rotherham 3-2 on Isgrove's debut, but all the action happened when he was off the pitch with a flurry of late goals.

It means that the 22-year-old will not be guaranteed to start against Huddersfield, but he will be hoping that Stuart Gray keeps the faith in him.

The Southampton loanee was brought to Wednesday to add pace and skill to their attack, and he will be confident that, with regular games, he can do just that. 

So far this season the Owls have struggled for goals, and are one of the Championship's lowest scorers, but Isgrove will be aiming to ensure his new side finish the season strongly.
