PRE-MATCH
Stuart Gray: “When Hillsborough is rocking, there is no better place to play your football.

“We go into the match full of confidence and we will get a bumper crowd, but we have to entertain them. It’s up to the players to give the fans a lift.”

Nigel Adkins: “We know it'll be a challenging fixture - they've done well so far but so have we, so it'll be a good game.

“We go up there with confidence having won four games on the spin, the spirit amongst the players is really good.”

TURNING POINT
Keiren Westwood saves Glenn Murray's penalty to give the Owls a massive lift.



POST-MATCH
Stuart Gray: ““It’s all about the team. I’ve just said to the players that they deserve that win today because they have given the crowd something to shout about.

“And that has come from the graft they have put in. We defend from the front and we have done that superbly.”

Nigel Adkins: “In the end man of the match Westwood saved the penalty with his feet, he's made a couple of really good saves - Jake Cooper from point blank range, a long range effort from Nick Blackman.

“We created opportunities to go and win but as we leave the scoreline ultimately is 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday."
