Wednesday fans could be set to see Tommy Spurr stick to his guns at left-back instead of reverting back to his more natural centre-back position, according to the highly-rated youngster.

Spurr came through the Owls youth ranks as a centre-back – but since his first inclusion in the first team this season has been used to fill in at left-back – a role he is becoming more accustomed to of late.

‘I`m feeling a bit more comfortable at left back than I used to do,’ he told the Sheffield Star.

‘I feel that I’m doing all right there, and I`ve felt more involved going forward as well; we’ve worked on crosses and on going forward.

‘Hopefully it will all come together and I`ll keep playing well. I’m pleased with the way things have gone for me this season. I`d like to kick on from here.’

The 19-year-old has been found out on a few occasions this term against the divisions more ‘tricky’ players, but Owls boss Brian Laws has already recognised his potential and has also called for Spurr to be called-up to the England under-21 set-up since his arrival at the club.

Spurr has made 26 league starts for the club after making his debut in the home clash with Luton Town in August – and he will be hoping to get one over on his hometown club as he looks set to be a part of the Owls side that travels to Leeds on Saturday.
