Palmer prepared for huge weekend

22 April 2021

With the basement battle at boiling point, Liam Palmer says Wednesday are doing everything possible to keep their cool ahead of a huge weekend in the Championship.

The midweek win over Blackburn coupled with results elsewhere has boosted our survival hopes and next up is a crunch clash at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Three points is seemingly a must, to which Palmer alluded as he addressed the media on Thursday morning.

“That’s the aim and there’s important things before that, first and foremost getting out there today on the training pitch and working on the game plan for Saturday.

“We are focusing on ourselves, we are keeping calm and focusing on what we can effect and that means picking up maximum points in the three games we have left this season.

“We can’t control what happens anywhere else, we can only effect our games.”

With Darren Moore continuing his recovery from illness, assistant manager and coach Paul Williams will continue to steer the ship at the Riverside.

And Palmer explained that the duo are the ideal foil for Moore in his absence as the Owls seek to post a vital victory.

“Jamie and Willo have worked with the gaffer before, they are well drilled on how he likes to operate.

“He’s brought a real air of positivity and given us a set way on how he wants us to play while giving us some identity back.

“We are more free-flowing and creating chances whilst keeping that defensive solidity in our attacks, the manager is big on that as well. It’s all about expression, particularly in that final third, he wants us to really showcase what we can do.”
