Roll your sleeves up time

11 February 2019

Millwall away on a Tuesday night; the message to the players is simple from manager Steve Bruce – roll your sleeves up and give it a good go.

A rejuvenated Wednesday side, with just one defeat in eight in the Championship and back to back clean sheets under Bruce, head to the Den in midweek.

Expecting a completely different challenge to the two games gone before, Bruce explained:

“They will ask every question of you, they are big, brave, honest, they’ll get the ball forward and ask you a question, ask your defenders a question and put the ball in your box.

“He’s done a remarkable job Neil Harris in what they’ve achieved.

“They are a handful and fighting for their lives. It’s never going to be easy to go to The Den on a Tuesday night that’s for sure.

“The one thing you have got to do is roll your sleeves up and have a go because if you don’t then you are going to get found out.”

Although many early signs have pleased the Wednesday boss, the conversation rate of chances is one area Bruce would like to see an improvement, having established a stronger platform defensively.

He continued: “We’ve created some good chances in the last two games and it took us until the last minute at Ipswich.

“It could have been a similar story on Saturday.

“They were really, really good chances and you will not get five or six of those a game so if we have to be a little critical, then we must find that cutting edge.

“But we crack on, carry on, we practise again and on we go and hopefully we can take one or two on Tuesday night.”
