It was a great feeling

6 April 2016

Ross Wallace took his tally to four goals for the season after thumping home the winner against Blackburn on Tuesday evening.

The Scot played a pivotal role in the equaliser too, as his ball into the middle took a big deflection and looped over Jason Steele in the Rovers goal.

Happy with his telling contribution, Ross says he was delighted to be back on the scoresheet and emphasised the importance of everyone chipping in with goals.

He said: “It was a great feeling and I was delighted. I’ve gone close with a few shots and went quite close at Huddersfield as well but I want to score more goals and it’s important we all try and chip in to help the strikers.

“Once I played the ball for the first, I thought Hooper was going to score anyway because it was going right across the goal and he was running in. But we got a slice of luck and it went in.

“You need those over the course of the season and they have gone against us at times but fortunately for us we got that bit of luck this time.”

After a typically tough and close-fought opening to the game, Wallace believes the Owls were good value for their victory – with the points increasing Wednesday’s grip on a top six spot.

He added: “I thought the sending off enabled us to take control of the game.

“But in the last 20 minutes of the first half I thought we started to put more pressure on Blackburn and we were getting in behind them with short passes which is what we have worked on.

“Teams are coming here and trying to stop us playing and that’s the kind of respect we’ve got now from the opposition.

“They want to come and stop us playing but eventually with the players we’ve got, we will always create chances.”
