On the right track

21 January 2013


Chris Kirkland has said the Owls' recent run of results in the Championship has been a good reflection of the hard work on the training ground.

Since Wednesday’s 1-0 win at local rivals Barnsley in December, Dave Jones’ side have gone on to pick up 14 points from the last seven Championship games – keeping five clean sheets along the way.

Naturally the clean sheet tally totting up has pleased the Owls’ number one, who believes Wednesday can go from strength to strength and haul themselves away from the danger zone.

He said: “The lads have been superb. We have managed to tighten up and have done a lot of work on the training pitch. It’s not just one or two - it’s been a team effort.

“We’re tightening up and we’ve got to keep doing that. We got ourselves into a terrible situation, we’re putting that right but we’ve still got a long way to go.

“If we can keep a few more clean sheets with the lads we’ve got and the attacking threat we’ll win more games.”

The Owls face Charlton at The Valley on Saturday and, having remained unbeaten in the last four away league games - winning three, confidence is high in the camp ahead of the trip to the capital.

Kirkland continued: “You can get into a rut and it’s hard to get out of it but that’s gone now.

“We’ve got ourselves into a tough situation and the only way we’re going to get out of it is by doing what we’ve done during the last seven games.”
