More of the same

1 March 2013

 

More of the same – that is the message from Dave Jones as his Wednesday side prepares for the visit of Nottingham Forest to Hillsborough on Saturday.

 

The Owls go into the game unbeaten in seven games and with just one defeat in 12 and Jones is out to extend that run of resistance.

 

He said: “We are on a good run and now we have to keep that run going.

 

“In our recent home games against Brighton and Crystal Palace, we have shown how far we have come as a team and won both games – when we lost to the same teams earlier in the season.

 

“We have grown as a team and as a club and that is showing in the way we are playing.

 

“We are far less naive now and reaping the rewards. Against Palace, for example, we were under pressure in the second half and it was important for us that we stayed in the game and we did that.


“If you compared the team we put out against Brighton early in the season to the one in the game against them at Hillsborough, there was something like eight changes and the same can be said of the two Palace games.


“These are good indicators of where you are going as a football club and I am confident we are going in the right direction.”

 

The Forest clash is televised live by Sky TV and Jones is hoping for a positive display and result from his charges.

 

Depending on results elsewhere, victory could mean a leap of four places in the Championship table.

 

He added: “We want the points as soon as we can and when you are on television, you want to impress the people who are not at the game.

 

“This is a good chance for us to show people how far we have progressed.

 

“Forest is not far down the road, there should be a good atmosphere and we are ready for the game.

 

“We want to get as many points as we can as quickly as we can to get out of trouble and the only way to do that is by winning football matches.

 

“There is still a long road ahead, though, and we have to maintain the standards we are setting at the moment.”
