STRIKER Chris O’Grady is relishing the prospect of returning to Rochdale this weekend as the race for promotion in League One hots up.

The Sheffield Wednesday forward spent almost two years at Spotland before moving to Hillsborough in a £350,000 deal last August.

Although the Nottingham-born player is looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, O’Grady insists his top priority is to keep helping Wednesday maintain their top two push.

He said: “I am focusing on going there and getting the business done.

“Being there [Rochdale] helped my career massively. It led me to be here so I am very grateful for them but I will definitely be going there to win.”

O’Grady, who scored a superb header in Sunday’s vital 1-0 win at home to fellow promotion rivals Sheffield United, added: “It’s about us and, if we perform as we can, then I’m sure we will be successful.”

Wednesday have confirmed the season ticket discount deadline for next year ends on Friday.

Prices start from £315 for adults, the equivalent of £13.70 per match while all concession prices have been frozen from the current campaign.

Alastair Wilson, the Owls ticket office manager, commented: “We saw on Sunday one of the benefits of buying a season ticket when the derby match sold out a full month before the game.”
