We will battle on says boss Rohl … Windass out of Leicester clash

Danny Rohl says Wednesday will fight on to stay in the Championship after today’s 2-1 defeat at Birmingham.

Having seen the Owls take the lead, only to lose to a late Brum winner which leaves us ten points from safety, the manager said: “I’ve told the players that I am not here to wave the white flag, I am here to be a fighter and I will do everything to take points. I think everybody recognises that we are trying everything.”

Reflecting on the game itself, Rohl said: “We deserved the lead and maybe for the score to be more than 1-0 but I am disappointed with the goal we conceded for 1-1.

“It was a good goal for us and good to score before half time but in the next two or three minutes it is always dangerous because there will be a reaction from the opponent.”

He added: “I’ve spoken before about us needing more. I think today we showed nearly what we can do in this league. We didn’t play like a bottom team, more like mid-table maybe.

“I’m frustrated but I’m here to improve the players and identity of this club. I’ve a clear identity what I want to see on the pitch. We’re disappointed we’ve not come away with something but we’ll keep heads up and go forward.”

A fifth booking of the season means that Josh Windass is suspended for Wednesday evening’s home clash with league leaders Leicester although Callum Paterson will be back in contention following his one-game ban today.

Michael Smith missed the Birmingham match with his continued injury problem while loanee John Buckley was missing for family reasons.
