Nothing to fear

5 December 2014

  • Owls face Blackburn at Ewood Park on Saturday
  • Rovers unbeaten in nine
  • Wednesday boast resilient away record

Wednesday head to in-form Blackburn on Saturday with Rovers currently on a nine-game unbeaten run.

But on paper, the Championship clash is set to provide an interesting affair as Wednesday boast one of the strongest records on the road.

Stuart Gray’s side have lost just once in nine away games and that run will be put to the test at Ewood Park on Saturday.

“Blackburn are on a nine-match unbeaten run,” Gray said. “They are solid, play two banks of four and two lads up front that can cause you problems, in Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede.

“They probably are the best front two in the league and I think Blackburn play to their strengths.

“Ben Marshall is playing out of his skin at the moment. He’s playing very well so we have to keep him quiet.

“If we defend like we did from the front against Wigan, hopefully that will stop the supply to them.”

Wednesday have proven the toughest nut to crack on the road this term with just that one defeat to Cardiff and have conceded just six goals out of base.

Given Wednesday’s pedigree away from home, Gray says his side head over the Pennines this weekend with nothing to fear.

He added: “We are performing well on our travels. We don’t fear anybody.

“It was a bit of a shock to the system conceding a goal from a set play because we have been solid on that front. We have to make sure we don’t do that again.

“I think it’s a good spell for us. We are going to be playing teams who are in and around us.”
