The following year, Grant's long awaited return from injury came on 22 November 2014 when he was selected on the bench against the newly re-branded Melbourne City FC in Round 7. Grant was substituted onto the field for Ali Abbas in the 68th minute. For the rest of the season, Grant was consistently apart of the match-day squads, but mainly used of the bench, starting only a handful of games. The new Sydney FC coach, Graham Arnold, cited the reason for this was largely due to Grant missing a lot of tactical sessions during pre-season as he was returning from injury. Grant scored his first goal since coming back from injury in the Round 18 clash of the 2014-15 A-League season against Central Coast Mariners at Allianz Stadium with a 25-yard screamer in which Sydney FC would go on to win 4–2. Days later, Grant was rewarded for his form after returning from injury with a 2-year contract extension, along with team mate Sebastian Ryall. Prior to Grant's injury in 2013, he was mainly deployed as a utility player at the club but Arnold believed he would excel at right fullback and had agreed with Grant to concentrate on these qualities in the 2015 off-season.
