In contention

5 December 2012

Owls youngster Danny Mayor is out to build on his maiden start for the club after featuring from the off against league-leaders Cardiff City last weekend.

The 22-year-old has made six appearances for Wednesday this season and has slowly but surely began to rack up the plaudits both in and outside of the club.

Mayor is now hopeful of inclusion in the Owls’ forthcoming fixtures and has an eye on this weekend’s clash against Bristol City.

“Hopefully I have put myself in contention but, like the manager says, you have to perform in training as well. Every player gets his chance everyday when they come to the training ground.

“When I came to Wednesday, I wasn’t fully fit but I feel I am getting there now and it’s up to me to force my way into the manager’s plans.

“I feel I did ok against Cardiff. I like to get on the ball, run at players, get past players and create things going forward. 

“I thought I did well and now I need to keep improving.”

Wednesday face fellow strugglers Bristol City at Hillsborough on Saturday, who also reside currently in the bottom three.

Taking into account the spirited performance last time out against high-flying Cardiff, Mayor is confident the Owls can collect three points from the Robins by applying the same work rate and taking chances in the final third.

He added: “We know it’s a big game, it’s like a six-pointer. We know we can win, but we must be at our best.

“If we can match how we played last week at Cardiff, then I’m sure we can get back to winning ways this weekend.”
