Maguire in frame to be Owls Player of Year

Have your say

First there were three, now there are four.

Players who spring to mind as Sheffield Wednesday Player of the Year contenders, that is.

Chris Maguire has forced himself into the reckoning, in my book.

His 10 goals have come from only 26 starts - an especially good record for someone who has played almost all those games in a wide midfield role rather than up front.

Chris Kirkland, Liam Palmer and Kieran Lee have been my other contenders, in a season where, on the whole, players have either missed a lot of games through injury or been inconsistent.

Three goals in the last four games have helped to thrust Maguire to the fore: a penalty against Forest, a clever dink against Bournemouth and a terrific finish against Charlton.
