Palmer wants Owls response

25 September 2014

  • Palmer looks forward to Cardiff
  • Owls back in Championship action
  • Academy product aiming to continue good league form 

Liam Palmer has said the Owls will learn lessons from defeat at Manchester City but is confident Wednesday can carry on where they left off in the Championship.

The Owls have one of the strongest records away from home in the Football League and head to Cardiff on Saturday.

And looking ahead to the game, Palmer views the fixture as excellent chance to bounce back after a heavy defeat to Manuel Pellegrini’s superstar-filled City side.

Palmer said: “We’ve got to take pleasure from our league form.

“We obviously conceded a lot of goals in the cup game but a part from that, we have been excellent at the back and kept teams out.

“We have to dust ourselves down and move on. Cardiff will be another tough game but we have done well away from home in the Championship.

“We’ll get back on the training ground and head to Cardiff looking to build on what we have achieved in the league this season.”

Following the midweek Capital One Cup exit, Palmer gave special praise for the capacity away following at The Etihad.

He said: “Our fans were unbelievable throughout the whole game and there aren’t the words to describe how good they have been for us this season.

“I think everyone concerned last night could only have admiration for the players at the top level and I think we have seen the difference and what it takes to play at the very top.”
