Giving it our all

21 February 2017

It’s been a gruelling schedule of late for the Owls but one they have come through so far with flying colours.

Having posted a maximum haul of 12 points during February, Wednesday are set for their fifth game in 18 days as they host Brentford this evening.

Delighted with the return from a so far perfect month, Hutchinson says all that matters are the points at this stage of the campaign.

The recent run has seen the Owls pull seven points clear of seventh spot and that gap could be extended further tonight at Hillsborough.

The former Chelsea man says the players will continue to fight as hard they can to ensure the good run continues, explaining:

“All the boys are doing their utmost and I think you can see that on the pitch and at this stage of the season, the only thing that matters are the three points.

“We obviously want to play good football but the main thing is winning games at the moment.

“We’re doing everything we can but obviously it’s hard because it’s our fifth game in a short time and that’s a toll on anyone’s body.

“Brentford have got the rest coming into this game, like Leeds will have on Saturday, so we’ll need our fans right behind us more than ever.”

Wednesday have every reason to go into the game in confident mood having only suffered one defeat in the last 12 league games, winning eight of those along the way.

“We are confident wherever to be fair,” Hutchinson added. “We have great fans and we need them right behind us tonight. It’s a hard league but we go into every game confident.

“We understand the pressures that come with playing for Sheffield Wednesday and we’re going out there to fight as hard as we can for this club.”
