Sheffield Wednesday star receives high praise from former Owls ace



Former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Mark Crossley has been extremely impressed with how summer signing Lee Gregory has started the new campaign, speaking to Football Fancast.

The Yorkshire club rose to the League One summit after a 2-0 victory away to Rotherham United on Saturday.

Florian Kamberi opened the scoring for the table-topping Owls five minutes after the break, before Lee Gregory, who came on as a second-half substitute doubled the lead with 15 minutes to go.

Wednesday are yet to concede a goal in England’s third tier thus far this season, but they have now scored five league goals, with Gregory scoring in back-to-back games.

The 32-year-old forward had been operating at Championship level for the past five seasons, but embarked on a new venture outside the second-tier, joining Sheffield Wednesday in their attempt in bouncing straight back to the division.

Former Wednesday goalkeeper Mark Crossley has been particularly impressed by Gregory’s start at Hillsborough, and spoke highly of the club’s other attacking options to Football Fancast: “Gregory came on, again he is a proven striker and I think he is an excellent signing and he looked fit and he looked strong when he came on.

“So, you’ve got Kamberi, you’ve got Windass, you’ve got Gregory. For League One you would expect that three to get goals.” 

The verdict

The options Moore has up front is excellent and it is perhaps the best attacking line up in the division. Gregory has come into the lower division and has done exactly what he has been brought in to do, which is score goals and cause havoc.

It is not just the forward players that are already impressing, but the midfield is also stacked with quality and has already been consistently providing their strikers with excellent service.

Once Josh Windass returns to full fitness, then the promotion push that they have already made a great start on, will be boosted even more.
