Derby flavour will suit Owls

6 November 2014


  • Liam Palmer says Rotherham clash is ideal test
  • Defender relishing the derby flavour
  • A line drawn under the Cherries reverse


A big crowd, a derby atmosphere and a chance to get back on track is why Liam Palmer is looking forward to the Rotherham clash.

After defeat in midweek to Bournemouth, the academy product views the game as an ideal opportunity to respond and regain that winning feeling.

He told swfc.co.uk: “It’s a big game, it’s a derby we will all be up for it and wanting to bounce back.

“We need to get that winning feeling back.

“We had discussions after the Bournemouth game, we got a few things off our chest and have left no stone unturned.

“That is the best way to deal with it.”



The defender says a line has been drawn under the Cherries defeat and that Wednesday will be more than ready for the South Yorkshire derby.

“Everyone has had their say and now we move on and get on with it,” he said.

“I think the Rotherham game is ideal. It’s a derby and it will be an occasion.

“Rotherham are in a rut too and it will be a scrap. But like any derby, it will be a ferocious pace with tackles flying in and that’s what I expect.”
