Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on Jack Marriott’s return to Derby County following an injury sustained to his calf.

The Derby striker joined the Owls on loan on deadline day.

It was a decision which left many Derby supporters annoyed following the club’s failure to bring in another striker to replace Chris Martin during the summer transfer window.

Marriott has goal scoring ability when provided with the right opportunities.

His spell at Hillsborough, however, has seemingly been cut short as he is back at Pride Park receiving treatment for a calf injury. Here are how some Owls fans reacted to the news.

Marriott scored an abundance of goals for Peterborough United in League One.

His spell at Posh prompted Derby to spend some £5 million bringing him to Pride Park, where he soon became a fan favourite for his work-rate and eye for goal.

Marriott scored twice in the 4-2 playoff semi-final second-leg win at Leeds United.

But since then he has struggled to remain fit. A succession of injuries followed by poor form saw Derby make the decision to move him out on loan in the summer.

And with just four Championship starts at Wednesday and no goals, the 26-year-old’s luck hasn’t been kind as his latest injury could rule him out for six or seven weeks.

Derby and Wednesday sit at the bottom of the Championship having scored only 11 goals between them. How they both could do with the Marriott of 2018 right now.
