Danny: We’re ready for one last challenge

Danny Rohl says his Wednesday squad are ready for one final push to secure our Championship survival at Sunderland tomorrow.

We go into the crucial game knowing that one point will be enough to achieve the goal and that if either of our relegation rivals, Birmingham or Plymouth, fail to win then we will also stay up … even if we lose.

Birmingham are at home to a Norwich side needing a point to confirm their place in the play-offs while Plymouth host a Hull team who know a win will give them a chance of clinching a last day play-off position.

However, Rohl is focussed totally on Wednesday retaining our place in the second tier without help from others, saying: “We should try to decide the game on our side as soon as possible and then it doesn’t matter what happens in the other games.

“I want us to play with the same intensity as the last few weeks and to be ready for this fight. It is a big, big opportunity and we have worked hard to come to such a point.

“This game will be tough, we are prepared and I feel my team is ready.

“We have to make the final step now and I am very convinced about my team, I feel the positive things again this week.”

Michael Ihiekwe could be in the matchday set-up following injury while Ian Poveda might be in the squad after his lengthy lay-off, although Rohl said he will not take any risks if there is a doubt over the player’s fitness.

On the one final challenge to complete a remarkable ‘great escape’ under his managership, Rohl said the players will be fully focussed: “In football you never know, it is the last matchday and we know in the Championship, every team will give everything they can to have a good season finish. The players of all the teams want to show up again to say goodbye to the fans and we have to be ready for this.

“For us, we come closer to arrive at the top of our mountain. Sometimes when you walk to the top of the mountain you feel the air is less and it hurts. But we have come through this and now we are very close  to the last step.”
