Speaking with the media on Christmas Eve Tony Pulis said picking up his first win against Coventry on Saturday was everything ahead of the Owls’ Boxing Day clash with Blackburn.
The Wednesday boss also issued an injury update, with a number of players to assess before our trip to Ewood Park.
Pulis said: “Josh Windass, Barry Bannan and Kadeem Harris have missed training this week. We’ll assess them this afternoon and decide what team to go with.
“Winning is everything. I don’t think we’ve played bad in the other games, we’ve shot ourselves in the foot in the games we’ve lost.
“Things haven’t been going for us and there’s maybe been two halves of football we’ve not been happy with, but I think the players are doing their best.
“Things like Joey Pelupessy hitting the woodwork twice against Barnsley, we’ve not had the run of things at times.”
On Blackburn, Pulis spoke of his respect for Tony Mowbray and is anticipating a tough festive fixture.
He added: “Tony has been there a few years so he’s had time to put things in place, I’ve got a lot of respect for him, he’s a good man.
“They’ve been scoring goals for fun and they’ve got some good players. If they get a little bit of good fortune they can easily end up in the top six.
“We’ve got to concentrate on the three games coming up and try and get as many points as we can and take stock of where we are.”
