Weaver gets extended run.

Good to see Nicky Weaver getting a chance to put a sustained run of first team games together with his six week loan spell at Sheffield Wedensday which began last Saturday in their 2-1 victory against Derby. Weaver joined the team at short notice following injuries to their first choice keepers and by all accounts performed creditably as well.
Since coming back from his serious injury problems, he has been limited to reserve team outings with the exception of his cameo against Middlesbrough on the final day of last season so it is a good move for both Weaver - and one he is keen on, and the club in that he can be seriously tested by playing a number of games in the Championship until Christmas.
No word on whether there is potential to extend the deal (correct me if I'm wrong) but I think with de Vliiger in reserve to David James (does he ever get injured?) it is the ideal opportunity to get Weaver out on loan for the season to a club where he can play regularly and build up his confidence and fitness over a sustained period in a more competitive environment than reserve team football.
