We keep going

19 December 2014

Following last weekend’s reverse at the hands of Wolves – the Owls’ first defeat in five - Chris Maguire says the squad have put the result to bed and are prepared for the trip to Craven Cottage.

Fulham’s first season back in the second tier has seen the club post a mixed bag of results.

While the Cottagers lost seven of their opening nine games in all competitions, the Whites - under Kit Symons - have hit back to move away from the foot of the division.

Maguire says the Owls will be confident of posting a positive result in the capital.

“We just want to win as many games as possible,” he said.

“The dressing room was down after the defeat to Wolves because we were scratching our heads as to how we didn’t win, but we keep going.

“There’s another game on Saturday and if we go there in the right manner and with the way our away performances have been going, then we can get the result.”

Fulham were defeated 5-0 last time out at home by Watford, while the Owls have tasted defeat just once on the road all campaign.

The impressive run away from Hillsborough continued at Blackburn earlier this month and Maguire would like nothing more than to give Owls supporters an early Christmas present in the form of three points.

He added: “We know we’re not far away from the play-off places; if we turn draws into wins we’re not a million miles away.

“We’ve shown numerous times this year that we’ve held our own. We might not have got the wins, but we’ve competed. I don’t think there’s anything to fear in this league.”
