Big decisions to be made

30 April 2019

Steve Bruce says the club are set to make big decisions over the summer as the Owls manager looks ahead to a busy pre-season and hard work in preparation of the new campaign.

Wednesday round off the 2018/19 season on Sunday against Queens Park Rangers at Hillsborough (12.30pm).

After then, all thoughts will turn to 2019/20 and Bruce’s first full S6 term.

“We will fall short this season but it’s been some turnaround and they have done very well from where they were,” Bruce said.

“Now it’s a big summer ahead, of course for any football club not just our own, and some big decisions to be made.

“Because of the run and the level of performance, there are one or two that I would have liked to see a little more of.

“It’s good to see Kieran Lee, for example, we all remember what a good player he is and he looked really, really well – he’s had a tough time, so has Hooper and Onomah and it can take time to get up to speed so we have to be clever with them.

“We’ve seen bits and pieces of almost everybody so all of them have done well and we have big decisions to make.”

The Owls’ impressive comeback at Preston on Saturday means Wednesday have lost just two games from their previous 18 in the Championship.

Going into the break 2-0 down at Deepdale and then 3-1 down in the second half, the visitors fought back to claim a point in the 3-3 draw.

He added: “Before I even took over, Lee won two out of three games and the only defeat that Steve Agnew and Clem had was at Hull.

“To go 18 games and to have lost twice is remarkable form.

“All credit to them, they have responded to what we are doing and as I’ve said, I’ve really enjoyed the last three months working with them.”
