Owls chase another crucial three points in front of S6 sellout

A Hillsborough full-house will be hoping to roar Wednesday to another massive three points in our ‘great escape’ bid when we take on play-off chasing West Brom tomorrow afternoon.

Sunday’s 3-1 win at Blackburn took us out of the bottom three for the first time since August and also means the possibility of staying up in the Championship is now in our own hands, with just two games to play.

We go into the clash in 21st place on 47 points, one point and position ahead of Birmingham and three points clear of Huddersfield in 23rd. Above us, just three points separate Wednesday from the next three teams.

Manager Danny Rohl says Di’Shon Bernard is fit to return to the matchday squad, if selected, but there are still question marks over fellow defenders Michael Ihiekwe and Bambo Diaby, who were both forced off with injuries at Blackburn.

The Owls boss has called for his Wednesday side to take the game to their opponents, as they have done in recent matches, saying: “I think you know I always .want to have the mindset from my players that we attack.

“If we just wait and cross our fingers and are not convinced that we can do something, then it is difficult to go into such a game.

“They are a strong opponent, we know this, near the top of the table but in the last weeks our performances have been on a good level.

“We have different ways how we score now but, all in all, it is about doing our basics right like we have done in the recent weeks. Our confidence levels are high and we should use this as well to go into the game.”

An additional 1,250 seats in the lower tier of the Leppings Lane end were released for our fans late this week – and quickly snapped up – with the visitors having already sold out their allocation in the top tier.

Rohl, who also talked of the power of having a full stadium, added: “We have to invest and do everything right from our point and if we have this then we can make the next step. This is what I demand from my team.”

QPR sealed their Championship survival this evening with a 4-0 thumping of Leeds while, looking at our relegation rivals playing tomorrow, Huddersfield and Birmingham face each other in West Yorkshire, Plymouth are at Millwall, Blackburn entertain Coventry and Stoke are away to Southampton.
