View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "We will go there with plenty of confidence but we've never been short of confidence in any of our games this season. Maybe some of the luck we have missed out on over the past two months is catching up with us."

Simon Grayson said: "You want another game to come along quickly after a poor performance and this is a local derby that will be played in front of a big crowd. Sheffield Wednesday are on a good run of form and we know this won’t be an easy game."
