No surprise

29 October 2012


Defender Anthony Gardner was delighted with the performance at Portman Road on Saturday as Wednesday posted their first away win of the campaign.

The Owls eased to victory over Ipswich at the weekend, winning 3-0, and Gardner believes it is a result that came as no surprise given recent performances.

He told swfc.co.uk: “We have been threatening to put on a performance like that for the past few weeks but have not had the rub of the green.

“Away at Blackburn, we played well and should have got something but lost 1-0, and we did well against Leeds.

“We have quality in the squad and we have been putting in performances but there has to come a time when you turn that into results, as we did against Ipswich.

“The manager has been drumming into us about sticking together, keep performing and keep believing, as we have, because we have the quality in the squad to string results together.”

As pleasing as the three points were for Gardner, the former Hull man has said the squad will take confidence from keeping a clean sheet.

 He added: “We are a tight-knit group and we will stick together to push up the league.

“We felt solid as a unit, and as a team we have to be happy with our first clean sheet and our first away win.

“The manager has worked hard to get us compact and firing on all cylinders and he will be happy we have gone out and stuck together and put on a performance like that.”
