- Tom Lees looking to close gap on top six
- Defender targets consistent run
- Victory over Wigan would leave Owls six points off play-offs
Tom Lees says it’s all to play for in the second half of the campaign.
A win this evening at Wigan would take the Owls to within six points of the top six and Lees believes a consistent run would soon close that gap even further.
Speaking ahead of the Owls’ trip to The DW Stadium, the defender told swfc.co.uk: “If we win tonight that will put is in the top half.
“It’s really tight but if we get the win, then the gap is down to just six points so you can’t write anybody off.
“I’m sure there are teams below us that will be thinking they can get into the play-offs.
“The important thing is to maintain consistency because it’s no good going on a run of winning games and then having a massive downfall which we have seen clubs do this season.
“Teams like Birmingham and Bolton are picking up now, suddenly they are up around mid-table so you have got to be aware of how important consistency is.”
The Owls have won three of their last five in the Championship and Lees is hoping that the final game of 2014 will see Wednesday bring three points back to Hillsborough.
He added: “A few weeks of not picking up points and you can be right down there but with a few weeks of winning games, you can be right in the mix."
