Wednesday midfielder Kenny Lunt has spoken of his delight at returning to former club Crewe on loan and insists he hasn’t had a fair crack of the whip at Hillsborough this season.

The Runcorn-born midfielder secured a loan switch to Gresty Road, where he came through the youth ranks under former boss Dario Gradi, after falling down the pecking order at S6 with the arrivals of Graham Kavanagh, Ronnie Wallwork and Adam Bolder.

Lunt has made just three appearances in the blue and white stripes this season and he told the official Crewe Alex website that he hadn’t been given a fair shot by Owls’ boss Brian Laws.

‘I don’t think I have a fair opportunity at Sheffield Wednesday this season, so I needed to get out and play some games again,’ he said.

‘I have started three games this season and we haven’t done so well. Last season I played over 30 and we were tenth in the table, so I don’t think I’ve had a fair chance this year.

‘I need games and I want to be playing. I’ve been training all week with nothing to look forward to on the Saturday, and Crewe have again given me a chance to play competitive football.’
