We’ve got that response

18 January 2019

Caretaker manager Steve Agnew says the Owls have moved on and responded positively after defeat in the Championship last time out at Hull.

Wednesday have got back to business with a strong week on the training ground and victory in a tough cup-tie away at Luton on Tuesday.

As a result of that, Agnew has said spirits are high in the squad as the final preparations are put into place for the visit of Wigan this weekend.

He said: “We’ve done everything like we normally do, our analysis on the opposition, strengths and weaknesses and we’re all prepared and ready to go.

“After the cup-tie the other night, the lads are in good spirits so it will be a good game tomorrow.

“We’ve moved on from the Hull game, we addressed that and got a response from the players at Luton.

“Of course we were pleased about that and on Saturday we’ll have a good crowd, a good atmosphere.

“If we play with the intensity that we can, with the ability that the players are showing and showing us in training, I can’t see why we can’t put in a good performance and hopefully get the three points we need.”

Wigan ended an eight-game winless stretch last weekend with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Aston Villa and Agnew expects a difficult test from the Paul Cook’s side on Saturday.

“Wigan won promotion last year and then started the season very well,” he added.

“They’ve had a little bit of a sticky patch just recently but they got things back together last week with a really good win against Aston Villa.

“They’ll be in a buoyant mood and be confident after that so it will be a tough game.”
