A long way to go

25 January 2017


With back to back away games next up for Wednesday, midfielder Barry Bannan is confident the Owls can issue a positive response after defeat last time out at Brighton.

A trip to Bristol City on Tuesday and then Wigan the following Friday are on the Owls’ horizon – the latter of which will be live in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

The Owls remain in sixth spot after their 2-1 loss at The Amex and Bannan is now aiming to kick start another positive run of results, starting at Ashton Gate next week.

“There is a still a long, long way to go,” he said. “There are a lot of games left for us to go and do damage.



“This is the business end now, this time last season we went on big runs and we have to have a good run-in.

“We’ve got a couple of games away from home now but this season away from home, we’ve fared well so we’ll look forward to them.

“We know we can go to grounds and get results.”



Looking at the play-off picture, there is no shortage of candidates vying to break into the top six and maintain position.

The Scot believes that will be the case right until the last with the division as tough and unpredictable as ever, as he explained:

“It’s an open league and I expect it to be similar when there are ten games remaining.

“I expect that there will be teams challenging to get in the top six and teams falling away that you wouldn’t expect.

“There’s such a long time to go and so many games to play and you can never predict this league.”
