Keeping standards high

8 February 2013


Giles Coke feels as though the Owls are heading in the right direction but has stressed the importance of keeping standards high.

The midfielder, who made his first Owls appearance of the season last month against Hull, has helped his side collect ten points from the last four games.

The 26-year-old believes Wednesday have taken confidence from their recent performances and results but insists the Owls must now push forward and continue to climb.

“We’re unbeaten in our last four games and we’re trying to look up and kick on and see how many points we can get,” Coke said.

“The Championship is a very strong and competitive league. But we have got a good bunch of players, a good team spirit and the main thing is we have all stuck together and that has made a big difference.”

Victory over Brighton last weekend has given the league table a healthier look for Wednesday, who moved up to 18th - leapfrogging Ipswich, Bolton and Wolves in the process.

And with another home game on the horizon this weekend against Nigel Clough’s Derby side, Coke is calling on his team mates to maintain the current run by not letting standards drop.

He added: “The whole team is doing well and it’s up to us all not to let the standards drop.

“I’m really happy to be playing, it was out of the blue when I got picked to play against Hull but I feel as though I’ve got some consistency into my game, we’re winning and playing well.

“I still feel as though I can give more, I’ve played four games now and want to play as many as I can for the rest of the season.”
