Take the responsibility

3 October 2018

A tough challenge awaits the Owls tonight with in-form West Brom visiting Hillsborough.

Wednesday are unbeaten on home soil but face a stern examination of their credentials facing a Baggies side, who arrive on the back of three successive wins.

Heading into the clash without the suspended Barry Bannan, Jos Luhukay says responsibility must be taken by everyone this evening.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s round of fixtures which saw Darren Moore’s side leapfrogged at the top by Leeds and Middlesbrough, Jos said:

“We must take the responsibility as a team. We know that Barry is important for us but there is also the challenge for the rest of the team. 

“The challenge is not just that we are playing without Barry but the fact we are playing against the number one in the league.

“With West Brom we have a Premier League club who comes back in the Championship and they have not struggled.

“They have a fantastic team and we know their quality and all the credit to them because it is not easy when you come down.”

But having held Leeds last time out, the Owls have been strong at home and coupled with recent away wins at Reading and Aston Villa, victory tonight would see a significant rise up the Championship.

“This team is very flexible and we have a high tactical discipline,” Luhukay said of his side.

“They follow the way when we change formation and that is very positive for us.

“We are not predictable for our opponents, we will have our game plan and hopefully we will find a good way for our offensive actions to come to chances.

“It’s a hard and tough game for us but this is the Championship where anything is possible.”
