Jack Hunt praises Sheffield Wednesday's decision to sign Ross Wallace

Ross Wallace has played a key role for Sheffield Wednesday so far this season.

Jack Hunt has praised Sheffield Wednesday’s decision to sign Ross Wallace during the summer transfer window, in the Sheffield Star.

Hunt arrived at a similar time to Wallace, and the full-back has been very impressed by the former Burnley man’s ability.

The Crystal Palace loanee says that Wallace has been brilliant so far this season, and he is enjoying linking up with him down the right-hand side.

“Ross [Wallace] has done brilliant for us,” Hunt said. “It was great business to get somebody like him on a free transfer.

“We are still creating a good relationship and long may that continue.

“Ross is an orthodox winger and it has taken some getting used to but we are getting there. I knew it wasn’t going to work well over night. Sometimes we have worked well together and others not so good.

“We are still getting to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses so we can help each other out.”

Wallace has played 16 times for Wednesday this season, and during that time he has scored twice.

He has also laid on chances aplenty for his teammates, and his experience has been crucial, as Wednesday have pieced together a very strong opening to the campaign.

The Owls took a while to click into gear this term, but they have lost just one of their last 12 matches – and have emerged as a potential promotion contender.

Wednesday are currently sat in ninth place in the Championship table, and they are just four points adrift of the play-off spots.
