- Owls humbled by Manchester City in League Cup
- Giles Coke says Wednesday must look ahead
- Focus back on the Championship at Cardiff
Giles Coke says the Owls will look forward only following the Capital One Cup defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday evening.
The visitors were humbled 7-0 by the Premiership champions, with all the goals coming in the second half for the rampant hosts.
Now the focus returns to the Championship on Saturday, when Wednesday take on Cardiff, who also suffered a heavy defeat in the League Cup.
The managerless Bluebirds went down 3-0 at home to Bournemouth on Tuesday.
Coke said: “Of course, last night was hard to take because I don’t think we deserved to lose by that margin.
“But Manchester City are a top, top team with some incredible players. We weren’t expected to win and in the first half we did really well.
“They scored soon after half time and after that, we couldn’t stop them.
“But we won’t be playing Manchester City every week. We have to look forward now and we have a massive game on Saturday against Cardiff.”
The Bluebirds are in a state of flux having parted company with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and desperate to reverse an indifferent start to the season.
But Coke says that Wednesday too have a point to prove following the City setback:
“They have lost their manager and haven’t had a great start so they will be after a win on all fronts.
“But we know what we have to do and despite what happened last night, we will go there with confidence.
“We are well-placed in the table, we have only lost one game and we know we are a quality team with some quality players and a quality manager.
“We need that result out of our systems and the best way to do that is by getting three points on Saturday.”
