‘We need a to turn it round after three defeats’

Wednesday travel to Luton tomorrow, desperate to end a run of three defeats and offer some hope that we can yet survive the drop to division one.

With fellow strugglers also finding points hard to come by, we are still only three from safety but have failed to show the passion and will-to-win of a side battling against relegation in recent games, also failing to find the net in any of those three defeats.

Caretaker manager, Neil Thompson, said today: “There was a lot of disappointment in the changing room after the game on Wednesday and we have to lift it.

“Defeats hurt players, it hurts everybody. We have 15 games left, a lot of points to play for and a good chance to get out of this situation.

“If you look at the last 12 league games, we’ve won six and drawn one. But we’ve lost the last three so we need a reaction tomorrow.

“It’s important we react in a positive way to get back on track. We have to turn it around.”

We go into the game without Keiren Westwood (ribs) and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, who is ruled out for up to six weeks with an ankle injury sustained at Brentford in midweek, while Liam Shaw serves the second game of his two-match ban.

Loanee striker Jack Marriott could return to the squad after being sidelined through injury.

Wednesday sit in 23rd place on 28 points from 31 games, one point and one place behind Rotherham, who have a match in hand on us and entertain Reading tomorrow.

We are then three points behind Birmingham, who are at home to QPR, but they have played a game more than us.

Looking above them, Coventry sit on 34 points from 32 games and they travel to Blackburn tomorrow, then come Huddersfield (36 points from 32 matches) and they are away to Preston.

Bottom club Wycombe entertain league leaders Norwich on Sunday, their recent upturn in form seeing them now on 23 points from 31 games.
