Taylor on Tigers test

4 October 2012


Owls captain Martin Taylor has called upon his team mates to show the same passion and determination as on Tuesday, to get a result against Hull this weekend.

The experienced central defender believes the Tigers will be a big test for Wednesday but insists the squad will go into the game full of confidence.

Steve Bruce’s men head into the game on the back of a three-match losing streak and Taylor told swfc.co.uk:

“Hull are an established Championship side who were in the Premiership not too long ago so this game will be another tough test of our credentials.

“What we have to do is build on that point at Burnley and take a positive result on Saturday into the international break.
 
“We have to take the confidence we showed on Tuesday into this game and hopefully we can put another three points on the board.

“It was really pleasing to end our recent run of adverse results with the draw against Burnley on Tuesday. The run wasn't weighing on the minds of the lads but you do talk about it because we have a group of players here who care passionately about the results for this club.”

Taylor was full of praise for the travelling army of Wednesdayites who made the trip to Turf Moor on Tuesday and said they played their part in helping the side come away with a point.

The Wednesday skipper is now looking forward to the return to S6 this weekend, where he believes the fans will play a key role.

He added: “We’ve been on a poor run recently and it would have been easy for the fans to give up on the team when we went behind at Burnley, not once but three times. But they stayed with us every step of the way and helped us immensely.

“It was incredible when we walked off at half time, the roar from the fans behind the goal was quite spine-tingling and certainly spurred us on to come back.”
