Step up to the plate

3 October 2013


Given the recent performances against Doncaster and Brighton, Stephen McPhail is confident the Owls will notch their first win of the campaign sooner rather than later.

Wednesday came within a whisker of posting what would have been an excellent win on the road against Brighton in midweek, but for a last minute equaliser that left the Owls with a point for their efforts.

But McPhail feels his side will soon start climbing the table and collecting maximum points before long with more performances of the same ilk.

Speaking to, the ex-Cardiff man said: “It’s been a hard slog over the past few weeks, not getting the results we have deserved, so we have to keep believing and keep putting in performances like we did at Brighton and work hard for each other.

“It’s important now that we believe in each other and have that belief to win games because the lads we have here are more than capable of stringing positive results together.

“We had a long chat after the Birmingham game and we all have to take responsibility and step up to the plate.

“I think we can see from the last two performances that everyone is sticking together and it’s important we keep doing that.”

McPhail is in line to make his fourth appearance for Wednesday this weekend and has said he loving life with the Owls, playing regular first team football.

Ahead of the second international break of the season, the experienced midfielder would like nothing more than to head into break with three points under the belt and continued:

“I’m loving every minute of it here. Football is so important to me, I’ve been playing it since I was four or five years of age and there’s no way I wouldn’t be enjoying it.

“Every time I go out on the pitch, I’m going to give it my all and try to influence games as much as I can and do my best for the team.

“We have a big game at home on Saturday and if we can get three points heading into the break that would be great.

“The crowd were magnificent for us against Doncaster, even though the result didn’t go our way, so we want to put that right on Saturday for them.”
