Sheffield Wednesday’s Liam Palmer has positive news regarding his injury

Liam Palmer hopes to be fit for Sheffield Wednesday’s pre-season training.

Sheffield Wednesday defender Liam Palmer has told The Star that he will be fit for pre-season training with the squad.

The Wednesday players are expected to report to pre-season training on July 1, and Palmer is confident that he will fully recover from his ankle injury by then.

“I should be fine for July 1,” the 23-year-old told The Star. “It’s holding up really well so there shouldn’t be any more issues with it. I’ve been working hard down at Middlewood Road and it’s paid off.”

Palmer’s injury forced him to miss all competitive action from mid-Match, as Wednesday finished in mid-table in the Championship.

The right-back was a huge loss for the Owls for the final games of the 2014-15 campaign, as he was a regular until then.

In 35 Championship matches, the Scotsman created 32 chances, had a pass accuracy of 68%, and won 15 headers, 21 dribbles and 63 tackles.

Wednesday came 13th in the league table with 60 points from 46 matches, which was actually an improvement on the 2013-14 season’s finish.

The Championship club are without a manager at the moment, having recently dismissed Stuart Gray.
