Killer instinct

27 August 2013


Owls skipper Anthony Gardner has said his side must develop a killer instinct following the weekend draw with Millwall.

Wednesday posted a point against the Lions in the 2-2 stalemate on Saturday but Gardner was disappointed not to have bagged all three, having led the game up until the 87th minute.

Having hit the front in Championship fixtures against QPR, Leeds and Millwall, Gardner has said it is essential his side start building on those strong starts and emerge with three points at the full time whistle.

He told “When you get opportunities to kill the game off, you must take them.

“If we had scored a third goal on Saturday, we would have seen the game out.

“We had chances to put the game to bed but didn’t take them and that’s something we will have to put right.

“You have to take control of the game, especially when you’re at home, force the issue and make your pressure count.”

Next up for the Owls is a trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday before the first international break of the season.

For Gardner, gaining the first win of the season at the Riverside would be the ideal way to head into the break and he continued:

“You have to keep working hard, keep improving and stay positive,” he said. “We’ll be working on it in training to make sure we get that win at Middlesbrough.”
