Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan wants to add goals to his game

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan has played nine matches for the club to date.

Barry Bannan has admitted to Sheffield Wednesday's official website that he feels a lack of goals are holding him back at Hillsborough at the moment.

Bannan has been in brilliant form for Wednesday ever since arriving in the summer transfer window, and has already played a crucial role for the team.

However, the Scotland international has not scored in any of his opening nine games for the club, and he wants to ensure that he gets on the scoresheet in the near future. 

“I feel really happy with my game at the moment, the only thing holding me back is that I need to score goals," he said.

“I’ve not scored enough goals for the way I play but I’m getting into all the right positions now which is encouraging.

“I’m sure that will come for me but I am enjoying my game at the moment."

Bannan's goalscoring record throughout his career has never been particularly remarkable, but he clearly wants to start adding goals to his game.

Even without them, the central midfielder is still playing a crucial role for Wednesday and appears to be one of the most dangerous players in the Owls' squad.

Bannan has only tasted defeat once in the games he has graced a Wednesday shirt so far, and he appears to have established his place in their starting line-up with his performances over recent weeks.

Carlos Carvalhal's side are now unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions, and they have moved up into ninth place in the Championship table as a result.
