Bring on Boro

3 May 2013


Gary Madine is counting down the seconds to Saturday’s season finale against Middlesbrough as Wednesday aim to keep their Championship status.

The stakes are high this weekend across a number of key fixtures in the relegation battle but the Owls crucially head into the last round of fixtures one point ahead of danger.

A win would secure second tier survival and Madine is confident that come full time, Wednesday will have achieved their safety target.

He said: “As players, we are all ready for this game and can’t wait for it to come around.

“There’s going to be a massive crowd at Hillsborough and that’s what the players love and I’m more than confident we can go out there and get three points.

“The fans deserve a result this weekend and deserve for us to stay in the Championship.”

An ideal end to the term for the 22-year-old striker would be to score against the club he spent time with as a youngster, before his eventual release at the age of 16.

The former Carlisle man scored a huge goal for the Owls against Barnsley at Hillsborough in March and is aiming to sign off the campaign with another crucial strike on Saturday.

Madine added: “I just want to score goals and hopefully I’ll get my chance this weekend and score against the team that let me go when I was a boy.


“We’ve got a full squad of players who are working hard in training every day and all the staff have worked tirelessly in the build-up.

“We’ve got a lot of experienced players in the dressing room that can handle these types of occasions.

“The more fans there, the better because they drive you on and I’m sure everyone will rise to the challenge.”
