Owls striker aims to be a hoot next season

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday striker Clinton Morrison has fired a warning shot to defences in Npower League One, claiming he can score over 20 goals for the Owls next season.

The 32-year-old netted six times in 35 league outings last season as Gary Megson's side fought for mid-table mediocrity, rather than a spot in the Npower Championship.

On paper, Wednesday have one of the most fearsome looking strike-forces in the division and, should Morrison fire alongside Gary Madine, promotion is a genuine prospect next term.

And former Republic of Ireland international, Morrison, believes he can achieve a 20-goal haul, if he can remain injury-free for the entire campaign.

"If I am fit and in form, I predict I can score over 20 goals and that is what I am aiming to do," Morrison told the Owls' official website.


Morrison and his teammates have been enduring a gruelling pre-season boot camp in Austrian town Bad Aussee of late, but the ex-Coventry forward believes the hard work now will only help him fulfil his ambitions next season.

"I'm feeling really good and getting the benefits of all the hard work we are doing out here," he added. "It is hard but necessary.

"I've missed the last two pre-seasons because of injury and joining the club late in the summer so this pre-season is really important for me."
