Maintaining momentum

1 February 2013


Wednesday boss Dave Jones has urged his side to continue on their upward curve that has seen the club climb clear of the bottom three.

With just one defeat in eight league games, the Owls remain one of the form teams in the Championship.

Wednesday head into Saturday’s fixture against Brighton fresh on the back of last weekend’s stunning comeback at Charlton and Jones has highlighted the importance of building on that momentum.

He told “We’ve got to keep delivering, keep going, keep working hard and see where it leads us to.

“Everybody is bubbling with confidence and we have to make sure we keep it going and we don’t throw away all the hard work that we did last Saturday.

“We had a fantastic win, it was hard-earned, even at 1-1 we were in the ascendancy so I didn’t see the point in stopping that.”

Brighton, who are hot on the heels of the play-off pack in seventh position, visit Hillsborough this weekend and are a side that have proved difficult to topple this term.

The Seagulls have suffered just three defeats on the road in 2012/13 but are without a win in three, with last weekend’s cup defeat by Arsenal and recent draws against Blackburn and Birmingham.

Jones continued: “There has been an upturn over the last two months but I’ve always maintained we should be ten points better off and we kick ourselves because of that.

“We were never playing badly, we just weren’t getting the results and that kept everybody going because we knew something had to click.

“If you look at the team we are going to play on Saturday, you could be looking at seven, eight or even nine changes from the one that faced Brighton earlier in the season, so that shows you how much we’ve changed.

“It shows you how much we’ve been changing and evolving over a period of time.

“What we’ve done is keep our heads down, kept on going and got on with it.

“The week before against Wolves I think we should have won, it was just the end product that we lacked but last Saturday we got that.”
