Taking our chances

26 August 2016

Steven Fletcher is optimistic that the Owls can overcome the frustrations of the last two games.

Wednesday made a flying start in the Championship with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa and goalless draw at Norwich before posting successive defeats against Burton and Leeds.

But new recruit Fletcher has every faith that the tide will turn.

He said: “There are some good teams in this league, and every team can beat each other, as we have already seen.

“It is about the one who takes their chances on the day. So if we take our chances, we should be winning more of our games.

“We have got our heads down, we are working hard in training, and hopefully it will pay dividends in games.”

Away from the domestic scene, Fletcher has earned a call-up to the Scotland international squad alongside team mate Barry Bannan.

Gordon Strachan’s side play Malta in a World Cup qualifier on 4 September, when the towering striker will be hoping to earn his 29th senior cap.

He added: "I want to play as many games as I can for my country. I am looking forward to it.

"Hopefully we can get a good result against Malta. If we can get off to a good start, it will certainly help us in the long run."
