Sheffield Wednesday defender Liam Palmer has admitted his frustration at lack of playing time to The Star.

The 26-year-old has been largely a back-up to Jack Hunt at right-back and has not always been in matchday squads.

The former Scotland Under-21 international, who has been on the books of Wednesday his entire professional club football career so far, played against Reading last weekend.

Palmer has admitted his frustrations at lack of playing time, but the defender has said that he has channeled it in the right way.

“Every player wants to win and play games," Palmer told The Star. “It’s frustrating when you don’t play but you have to use that frustration in the right way.

“You have to keep going and do the right things in training. It’s all about hard work and eventually that pays off. You have to keep yourself right physically and mentally. That’s all you can control.”
