Hard to beat

20 February 2013


Chris Kirkland has urged his side to keep up their resilient run in the Championship.

There has been a steely determination about Wednesday in recent months and one defeat from 11 league games has given Kirkland every confidence that the Owls can march onwards and upwards.

A point from Tuesday’s trip to Birmingham ensured the unbeaten streak continued – now six games without a loss in league action and six straight games unbeaten away from home.

Kirkland told “The lads did really well, we knew it would be a scrappy game because both teams are battling for points.

“We’re in a good run of form, the lads are defending well but we were a little bit disappointed we didn’t capitalise on some great situations we had at Birmingham.

“We have 14 games left now and every game will be vital but if we keep doing what we’ve been doing, then I’m sure we will be ok.”

Wednesday’s current run will be put to the test on Saturday as Crystal Palace visit Hillsborough looking to strengthen their place in the promotion picture.

Automatic promotion remains firmly in the Eagles’ sights after their 2-1 midweek win over Bristol City.

On the game Kirkland added: “All game are tough in this division, if you look at some of the results yesterday you would not have predicted them.

“Crystal Palace won again on Tuesday so it’s going to be a tough, tough game make no mistake about that.

“They are going to come here with confidence but we have to give our fans something to cheer about.”
