Pulis to assess Norwich options

4 December 2020

Tony Pulis will spend Friday assessing his squad ahead the Owls’ trip to Carrow Road on Saturday to face Championship leaders Norwich.

The new Wednesday boss acknowledges it will be a tough test against the Canaries but is hoping his side will emulate their recent hard-working performances.

Pulis said: “I like Daniel Farke, I think he’s done a smashing job there. It’ll be a tough test for us. We’ll go there and look to do what we’ve done in the last four games and make sure everyone understands their role in the team.

“We’ll take a view today in training of what we need to do. I’m still learning as much as I can what the players’ strengths are. The number of games and lack of training doesn’t give you a good amount of time to get to know the players.

“It’s important we get everyone fit. Then in the next week or two we can see where we are going into the Christmas period.”

Wednesday will be without Liam Shaw and Massimo Luongo through suspension after they were shown a red card and received a fifth booking of the season respectively in midweek.

With Owls players having been issued five red cards already this season, Pulis is keen to eradicate poor discipline going forward.

He added: “The preparation we’re doing off the pitch is as important as that off the pitch. It’s ridiculous that we’ve had five players sent off.

“Big Dominic Iorfa coming on was a big boost for us. Josh Windass steps back into it too but unfortunately, we lose Mass and Shawy.

“Hopefully we can eradicate the poor challenges the players are making. The lads have got to be responsible for that.

“We have to recognise that the game is different to what it was and throwing yourself into challenges can be dangerous at times.”
