New Wolves boss Paul Lambert is looking forward to his first home game in charge against the Owls on Saturday, but believes it will be a tough test against a good team.

Lambert’s first game at the helm ended in a 0-0 draw away against Preston, but the ex-Norwich and Aston Villa manager hopes the backing of a big home crowd will help his side get three points against Wednesday. 

He said: “As a home team the onus is always on you.

“We are going to have a brilliant crowd tomorrow and that will drive us on.

 “It is something players should thrive on and if they do that then we have a chance.”

Lambert also praised Wednesday and cited last season’s play-off push as an example of the Owls’ capabilities. 

He added: “They just lost out in the play-offs last year and are a good team.

“They had a lot of investment last season and Carlos has done really well there.

“They have some good players and have been together for a few years.

“It is a tough game for us, but if we play as we know we can then we can get a result.”

Wolves striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has also spoken ahead of Saturday’s game, he thinks the team will be out to show what they can do in front of what is expected to be Molineux’s biggest crowd of the season so far.

He said: “I’m looking forward to it.

“We’re eager to show to the fans that we’re better than recent performances.

“We want to give the fans something to be happy about. We will try to do our best and hopefully we’ll get a win.”
