In this together

30 September 2013


Loan recruit Roger Johnson says it will only take a team effort for the Owls to end their winless run in the Championship.


Wednesday head to Brighton on Tuesday night still seeking their first win of the season – despite dominating against Doncaster at the weekend - but the big central defender has seen nothing to suggest even a modicum of disharmony.


He said: “I’ve come into a team that isn’t winning at the moment but we all have confidence that situation will change.


“The spirit around the place is fine and now we just need that win. We will only get that by playing as a group and playing as a unit.


“That starts from the front and goes through to the midfielders, the defenders and the goalkeeper.


“We did that on Saturday and we were unlucky not to win the game. But that’s football sometimes, you don’t always get what you deserve.”


On a personal note, Johnson is pleased to be back out on the football field playing games following a stint on the sidelines at parent club Wolves.


He explained: “I am a footballer and I just want to play football. I’m not one of those who is happy to sit back and take the money if I’m not playing.


“I want to get out there and earn my money. Everyone knows Sheffield Wednesday is a huge football club and I delighted to be here.


“I know the manager well, I have a lot of time and respect for him and I had no hesitation in coming here.


“Now it’s up to all of us to pull together and get this club back on track.”
