It’s all about one thing

28 February 2019

With all eyes on the Steel City derby on Monday, Owls manager Steve Bruce says it’s all about one thing - getting a result.

Wednesday head into the Sheffield derby rejuvenated after back to back wins at Hillsborough.

Having gone through February undefeated under Bruce, the Owls’ unbeaten run in the Championship stretches back to mid-January.

The Blades are too in hot form ahead of the S6 clash but none of that will matter on Monday, according to Bruce.

“All that is out of the window, it’s on the night, on the occasion, who handles it best, who handles the situation better and who doesn’t make the mistake,” the manager said.

“Will it be won by a flash of genius or a mistake? All of those things come into effect. Let’s look forward to it.

“I always say, the whole of the country will be watching the game on Monday, let’s make it a spectacle.

“Yes, there is always going to be huge rivalry but just keep it at a huge rivalry.”

And during the busy press conference at Middlewood Road on Thursday, Bruce underlined the importance of the game to the fans.

With Hillsborough rocking and the eyes of the nation watching on Sky Sports, Bruce added:

“It’s all about one thing – getting a result.

“Getting the win for your supporters so they go to work in the morning in a better frame of mind.

“It means a lot to the supporters of course it does. We know what it means.”
