More of the same

31 March 2013


Owls striker Gary Madine was delighted with the 2-1 win over Barnsley on Saturday and believes Wednesday must produce a similar performance against Bristol City on Easter Monday.

Madine set the Owls on their way to victory over the Reds by scoring the opening goal of the game on 65 minutes.

The hitman was delighted with his contribution in the crucial derby clash but it was the team performance that particularly pleased Madine, who said:

“I thought everyone was outstanding, including the fans.

“I thrive on that kind of service and a lot of credit has to go to Lewis Buxton for the ball he played into the box.

“His cross was asking to be put into the back of the net and thankfully I did.

“The gaffer said before the Barnsley game that we had nine cup finals to play.

“One of them has been won and now we have to go into the Bristol game with the same attitude and hopefully we can get a similar result.”


Wednesday face Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Monday and Madine expects a tough game against the Championship’s bottom club.

Despite victory on Saturday, the Championship remains as tight as ever at the foot of the division with seemingly no side in the bottom half yet clear of danger.

Madine continued: “I want to be classed a Championship player with this club next season and that’s what I’m aiming for.

“It’s turning out to be a good fight and now we have to go to Bristol on Monday and take the same performance levels and same work levels and I think we can get what we need.

“I’m confident in my ability, I’ve said that before. The fans know I’ve got it in me to score the goals, I heard them singing my name, and it’s up to me to produce it when I get the chance.”
