Fans can make the difference

29 November 2017

Owls coach Lee Bullen has stressed the importance of togetherness ahead of the return to Hillsborough on Saturday.

Unbeaten in six, but going into the Hull clash on the back of three successive draws, Bullen believes the fans can be the difference this weekend.

“Other than a couple of performances we know we can improve, we know where we can improve,” Bullen told

As the club aim for a return to winning ways, the former Owls defender is confident Wednesday can begin to climb the table with everyone fighting for each other and pushing in the same direction.

“We’re all singing together,” he continued. “We know that the fans are still on our side. I understand there’s some disappointment but if the fans weren’t on our side, we wouldn’t have had over 3,000 going down to Reading on a freezing cold November afternoon.

“I’ve seen ups and downs but I’ve seen a lot more ups than downs in the last couple of seasons.

“When you go through a so-called sticky patch when results have been so-so and performances can be better, 90% of the time it’s up to the players to get the crowd on their feet, to get the crowd singing.

“But on the odd occasion when the players are going through a hard time or finding it hard to get into things, the fans can make such a difference.

“They’ve done that when I was a player and they’ve done that over the past couple of seasons on many occasions, to lift the team.

“We need to be together, we need to be a unit, we need to be a family again, that Wednesday family that everyone talks about.

“I’m sure it will be like this against Hull.”
