McGeady fires home his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday

Everton’s on-loan winger has put the Owls up against Nottingham Forest.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY ARE looking to consolidate their position in the Championship play-off places away to Nottingham Forest this afternoon.

And the Owls have gone 1-0 ahead in the first half thanks to Ireland winger Aiden McGeady.

The Everton man, on-loan until the end of the season as he bids to gain first team football ahead of Euro 2016, was back in the starting line-up after being dropped from the squad for Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Brighton.

On the half-hour mark, McGeady received a pass from Scottish team-mate Barry Bannan and rifled the ball past Dorus de Vries.

It was the 29-year-old’s first goal for the club on his seventh appearance.
