Grant targets derby glee

Published Add your comment

Lee Grant believes Sheffield Wednesday have the talent in their squad to compete with the best teams in the Championship ahead of the Steel City derby with rivals United.

The Blades enter the clash on the back of three straight wins in the league but Owls goalkeeper Grant is confident his side can deal with them.

"We have already shown that we can compete with the best teams in this division on our day. We have the players to match any squad in the Championship," Grant told the club's official website.

He added: "We know what to expect from Sheffield United, they are big, they are physical. They have a good squad of players, but likewise do we.

"The lads are very aware of what it means to the fans and obviously want to give them something to smile about again after last season's win at Hillsborough.

"We're in good form at home and we need that to continue. We've proved that we can get good results away at the like of Charlton and, to an extent Swansea, but home form is what you fall back on."
