Staying strong

28 September 2012


Wednesday manager Dave Jones has spoken of how crucial one victory could be for the Owls, who are out to arrest their current slide in the Championship.

Having made an impressive start to the new term, taking seven points from nine, Wednesday have since hit the buffers and have failed to register a point in their last four outings.

But the Owls boss believes the current run can be just as easily reversed and one win could prove to be the catalyst.

He told Wednesday Player: “There’s no magic formula, I’ve said before we are not that far away, we just seem to get punished at the moment for every mistake that we make but that’s the level we are at.

“But listen, a win would change all that and boost everyone’s confidence.
 
“If you look at recent games, we should have got something from Bolton and we should have got something from Palace.

“With the goals we are conceding, we are not being cut apart. A lot of them are down to what we are not doing. But if everyone is performing to the best of their ability, we will start climbing the division in no time.”

Wednesday face a tough trip to Molineux this weekend, as Wolves aim to keep up their unbeaten start to the season on home soil.

But Jones has confidence that his side can produce a performance and a result in the West Midlands.

He went on to say: “At this level you will get punished for mistakes but I’ve always maintained it’s a learning curve. Players, like we all have, have got to take responsibility and do their best and that’s all you can ask.

“At the moment, because we aren’t getting the results, we are not doing the things we are capable of. When you’re on a run like this, you try to be safe whereas when you’re flying, you do things without even thinking about it.

“The players have to stay strong, stay firm, keep listening, keep working and if they do that, and don’t change that, then you work your way out of it.

“We are in a very unforgiving business so you have got to make sure everything is right. I feel if we all do the things we should be doing, we will get the results we want.”
