Hillsborough stronghold

18 January 2016

Wednesday’s stronghold at Hillsborough extended on Saturday as Yorkshire rivals Leeds were defeated 2-0.

Sam Hutchinson – who signed a new two and a half year deal in the build-up to the game – said one of the aims at the start of the season was to make Hillsborough a difficult place for the opposition.

With five consecutive wins on home soil and now 13 without defeat, Hutchinson said: 

“Before we started the season that was one of the plans the head coach brought in, to make sure when teams come to Hillsborough, they know what they’re coming into.

“The fans have helped us achieve that and I think we’ve got a style of play that helps on a bigger pitch because we like to move the ball quickly and there is more space here.

“Teams struggle to deal with how we play at Hillsborough and that’s down to the manager and down to the players.”

While Wednesday have enjoyed a 100% start to 2016, the combative midfielder feels performances can improve.

He continued: “I don’t think we’ve played as well as we did before Christmas but we have won all the games and that’s the sign of us getting stronger.

“I think we can play better but we are still winning.

“My goal is to help the team move forward, keep winning games and get closer to our target which is the Premier League.”
