Midfielder set to face his hometown club
Kevan Hurst says that tonight’s game with Chesterfield will be a special one for him.
Kevan was born in Chesterfield, and spent two years at his hometown club on loan from Sheffield United.
Despite being a Wednesday fan, and his dad being a Leeds United fan, there’s no doubt that playing his hometown team is always a big occasion – but he’s desperate for three points.
“We’ve had a couple of draw so the game against Chesterfield is an important one because we want three points to get back to winning ways,” Kevan said.
“Of course, it will be a bit more special for myself because it’s my hometown club and that always adds a little bit to the game.
“But the most important thing is getting the win because they are a good side.
“The new man seems to have galvanized the team and they are on a good run at the moment, so it’s going to be tough.”
Kevan grabbed another assist on Saturday against Bradford, and he’s hopeful he can keep setting up his team mates.
“As a midfielder it’s always good to get goals but most importantly you need to be setting up the strikers and others,” he said.
“I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing and hopefully I will continue to get assists.
“It would be nice to add a few more goals as well, especially against Chesterfield on Friday night.”
