Pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down

20 August 2014

  • Owls drew 1-1 with Millwall on Tuesday
  • Last-minute equaliser scuppers Wednesday win
  • No negative impact says Liam Palmer

Liam Palmer insists there will be no hangover to shake off when the Owls visit Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Wednesday suffered late, late heartbreak in midweek against Millwall, conceding an equaliser with almost the last kick of the game.

But Palmer says there will be no danger of the team taking any fallout to The Riverside Stadium:

“We will just pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and get on with it,” Palmer told Wednesday Player.

“We have a strong group with a good mentality. It hurt, of course it did, with the timing of their goal because it felt like a defeat.

“But the reality is that we have five points from three hard opening games and that was the first goal we have conceded.

“We are also unbeaten from four games in total and that can only be a positive.”

On a personal note, Palmer is extending his Championship credentials this time round following an excellent campaign last season.

And the 22-year-old says he will only go from strength to strength playing alongside the likes of skipper Glenn Loovens and new recruit Tom Lees in the rearguard.

He added: “They both have experience and good voices, which is a great help to the younger players.

“They are very composed with the ball as well.

“I think we have defended very well as a unit so far and we will only get better and stronger as the season goes on.”
